Our New Departmental Name

Today, the English Department voted to approve a merger between our departmental area and film, so we have become Multicultural and Transnational Literatures, Film, and Folklore. While the merger will not have any immediate effect on our curriculum, my guess is that the new name and members of the team (including Dr. Anna Froula and Dr. Amanda Klein) will represent exciting new possibilities for us going forward. It’s also gratifying to have Folklore represented officially as a part of our departmental name, especially since Dr. Kitta has done such an outstanding job in leading the area. That change, too, I believe, will bode well for future development of the area.
