Sometime in the fall of 2012, I was asked to contribute a short essay on the future of the English Department for Expositions, an interdisciplinary journal of the humanities published by Villanova University. I probably should have come up with a better title for my piece, something more creative and less pretentious, but there you have it. Other contributors, an addition to the organizer, Janine Utell, include Liana M. Silva-Ford and Richard Hertz. It appears in vol 6, no. 2 (2012) p55-57.
Here’s a PDF of my contribution should it interest you.
