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.

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 o […]
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.

So my first workshop in Geneseo was Fiction with Gentry in the spring semester of last year. This only being my second workshop and a diversion from the structure and content of my first one, I can’t help but feel […]
If anyone is interested, I stumbled upon a Ted Talk. Personally I enjoy Ted Talks because they are quick, entertaining, and mind opening. With what has recently been going on, in the world, in the United States, […]
Part of what interests me about foreign languages is that there are some foreign words that exist that have no English equivalent. However hard we try to define these words, we will never be able to explain t […]
