Selected Faculty Books


The Department of English at Rutgers-Camden is divided into four units:

The core of the department is a full-time faculty of twenty: thirteen of us work in Anglo-American and Anglophone literatures from the medieval era to the present, five in Creative Writing, one in Linguistics, and one in Journalism. Faculty members publish books and articles in distinguished venues, present their work at international conferences, serve as peer reviewers in their fields, and hold positions in national and international professional organizations.

Our Faculty Page lists significant career accomplishments, and Faculty Books highlights important recent publications.

One of the largest departments on campus, English offers an undergraduate major that attracts about 250 students. A commitment to interdisciplinary study has linked our department creatively with colleagues in other departments. English faculty members now serve as directors of affiliated programs in American Studies, Classical Studies, International Studies, Liberal Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies. We also offer our students hands-on experience through unique departmental projects, including StoryQuarterly, Mickle Street Review, and the Nick Virgilio Haiku Project.

Studying English at Rutgers-Camden provides graduate and undergraduate students with an unusual opportunity: the chance to work with a university-quality, research-oriented faculty in an intimate, college-like setting. Please contact us if we can be of any assistance.
