Department of English
About Us  
The research and teaching in our department includes historical and analytical approaches to language and rhetoric, academic and creative modes of writing, and the study of a wide range of literary and cultural traditions. Students and faculty in our department engage in critical analysis of the diversity and dynamism of various Anglophone environments around the globe, with a particular eye for how they are also embedded in transnational and translinguistic networks. Trained largely in the English-speaking world and teaching in English, our international faculty brings to the study of language, literature and writing a unique awareness of place.  The complexity of Lebanon’s cultural and linguistic situation informs many of the research projects we are pursuing.  Our students also bring to their studies a wide range of lived experiences ensuring that the study of language and literature in Beirut is a rich experience of crossing borders.
