Faculty

Currently, there are over 50 active faculty members in the English program, including 10 Distinguished Professors. As a consortium, the Graduate Center faculty consists of faculty members centrally appointed to the Graduate Center, as well as faculty members from other CUNY colleges. This distinctive feature affords a faculty within English that is uniquely diverse in interests and expertise. In addition to scholarship on English literature, our faculty has produced notable work in poetry and fiction, creative non-fiction, critical theory, art history, autobiography, biography, film studies, composition theory, and digital humanities.
