Department of English & Cultural Studies

Welcome

Welcome to the Department of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University. We have a tradition of outstanding scholarship and teaching in the field of English, and our graduate and undergraduate programs have strong reputations. We combine long-standing commitments to the exploration of British, American, and Canadian literature of all periods with expertise in Postcolonial literature and cultures and in approaches to literary study that emphasize transnational connections. We were among the first English Departments in Canada to develop courses and programs in Cultural Studies and Critical Theory, and we strongly believe that these offerings foster a unique and valuable set of critical, analytical, and communications skills in our students. Please explore our website for information about our undergraduate and graduate programs, our faculty and students, our visiting speakers series, our Mabel Pugh Taylor writer-in-residence program, our annual John Douglas Taylor Conference, and the journals we edit. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.

Student Media Workshop: Our Selfies, Ourselves?

Are you interested in selfie culture? Do you wonder why self-representation in images is so prevalent today? Do you think about how selfies help us understand ourselves and others? If so, then this workshop is for you! Hosted by Dr. Sarah Brophy and Dr. Janice Hladki, the co-curators of the exhibition This is Me, This is Also Me, the workshop provides an opportunity for you to engage collaboratively in activities and conversations designed to help us consider the implications of selfie culture. The workshop will be held on February 5, 4:30-6:30 PM at the McMaster Museum of Art, and you can register for the event here. This workshop has been funded by Forward with Integrity, Office of the President.
