In English we teach a wide range of subjects, from Anglo-Irish Literature, including Joyce, to Romantic and Victorian literature, modernism and contemporary literature, American literature and world literature in English, early modern writing and medieval studies, and women’s writing and gender studies. Courses are taught through lectures, seminars, and small-group teaching. Many distinguished writers – from James Joyce to Neil Jordan and Colm Toibín – are UCD graduates, and visits by writers are encouraged; the School has also made its mark in criticism and is proud to number Denis Donoghue, Seamus Deane and J.C.C. Mays among its emeritus professors.
