There are lots of reasons to join us here. English @ SUNY Geneseo is a space where English majors and faculty can work together across different courses or across different sections of the same course. It’s also a platform for students and faculty sharing a particular interest — creative writing, say, or Irish Studies — to explore that interest together and publish some of their work to a wider public.
Course management systems typically keep blog and wiki conversation sequestered inside this course or that. But often students and faculty have something to say that’s relevant across courses — certainly across sections of the same course. The Reader and Text blog is for students in the English department’s gateway course in the major. It’s part of a larger site for bringing the students across all sections of […]
Well, maybe that’s going a little far. But we certainly hope English @ SUNY Geneseo will be a starting point for lively discussion about life, beauty, value, and other concerns that tie students and faculty together in the English major.
English @ SUNY Geneseo is an online community for SUNY Geneseo students, faculty, and staff in the English major and related programs.
We also welcome alumni, fellow-travelers from other Geneseo departments, and anyone collaborating with SUNY Geneseo English on a project.

In light of our class discussion about bringing people together and how a power disparity can complicate the process I found myself drawn to Butler’s motif involving memory and lack of memory. Specifically how […]
During last week’s class discussion regarding the question of what brings people together, many interesting thoughts and ideas were presented. Common interests, proximity, power, and even chance were amongst the […]
While reading Fledgling by Octavia E. Butler, I have been challenged by many controversial plot developments. Being that this novel is a construct of the sci-fi/fantasy genre, I immediately began to think of my […]
Thinking a bit more about the discussion we had in class regarding how people are brought and kept together, especially when we account for power dynamics, I had one other idea I wanted to add to the mix which […]
In our recent class we were told to write down some of the strengths and weaknesses we have in our writing. I find some of my weaknesses to be meter and rhyme. I have never been very interested in writing in […]
It’s awards season in Hollywood! I wish I could say I’ve watched any of the films that will be nominated for best picture this year, but I haven’t. The only movie I saw in the theater this year was X-Men: Days of […]
