For the 2021-2022 graduate admissions cycle, the University of Chicago English Department is accepting only applicants planning to focus on British, American, and/or Anglophone texts and archives produced between the Middle Ages and the year 1900. The department understands its current areas of strength and interest in these fields to include the study of race, migration, empire and colonialism, intercultural exchange, the history of science and philosophy, longue-durée conceptual history, performance studies, and the body or embodiment (encompassing discourses of race, gender, sex, species, or ability). Comparative and multilingual approaches to literature are welcome, as are students from international and diverse backgrounds.
