Through literary study and creative writing, the Department of English at Kenyon College educates students about the connections among language, thought, society, and culture. Our teaching and writing are founded on literatures in English from around the world, past and present. Through a range of pedagogical practices and theoretical approaches, we discover the shaping power of literary forms, genres, and movements. Our students practice critical reasoning, interpretation, and creativity to become effective communicators and lifelong learners in a diverse and multicultural world. We strive to foster an inclusive environment in which all voices are valued.
