What Reviewers Are Saying
"This collection of essays provides the context for a much-needed discussion about and re-evaluation of long-standing questions concerning the future of English Studies. Its explicitly integrative approach opens new perspectives on such continually disputed areas as the content and structure of the curriculum, its professional value for students, and the disciplinary boundaries within English departments..." - Prof. Dr. Martin Putz, Universitat Koblenz-Landau"
