Later British and Anglophone Studies

In the Department of English at the University of Oklahoma the graduate concentration in Later British and Anglophone Studies is one of the most popular areas of study, with an excellent record in recent years in placing its Ph.D.s in tenure-track positions.  Many of the faculty who teach in this concentration also have interests in theory and gender studies, as well as in fields such as science, art, music, film, and history, and so courses are conceived and taught from a wide variety of perspectives.   

Graduate students work closely with faculty to develop their own scholarly and pedagogical skills and projects. Students present their work at regional and national conferences, and faculty assist them in seeking publication in major journals. The English Department and the Graduate College provide competitive funding sources for conference travel and dissertation research.  Recent graduates hold assistant or associate professor positions at institutions such as Denison College, Elmira College, the University of Nebraska-Kearney, and King’s College (Pennsylvania).

In addition to period courses in eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century literatures in English, including South Asian, Caribbean, African, and African diaspora literature and culture, offerings in this area include more specialized courses such as “Transatlantic Genres” and “Global Fiction.”
