Don’t miss this October 6th event that will bridge the liberal arts and the business world, offering inspiration and career advice for creative types. Coffee provided! Learn more.
This event will celebrates the life and works of Gwendolyn Brooks, one of the most well-celebrated poets of the 20th century. We will be hosting her biographer, Angela Jackson.
Angela will be discussing thie life and works of Gwendolyn Brooks. Additionally, DePaul Theater School Alums will read selected vignettes from Maud Martha. The only novel she ever wrote, this book tells the story of a young black girl growing up in Chicago.
Angela Jackson is an award-winning poet, playwright, and novelist. In her most recent book, A Surprised Queenhood in the New Black Sun, Jackson delves deep into the rich fabric of fellow poet and Chicagoan Gwendolyn Brooks’s work and world. Granted unprecedented access to Brooks’s family, personal papers, and writing community, Jackson traces the literary arc of this artist’s long career and gives context for the world in which Brooks wrote and published her work. It is a powerfully intimate look at a once-in-a-lifetime talent up close, using forty-three of Brooks’s most soul-stirring poems as a guide.

Join English faculty, staff, and students for an end-of-year celebration honoring our graduating students and department chair, Francesca Royster, on Friday, June 2, 3-5 PM in the Arts & Letters 2nd floor atrium.
As you may have heard, there will be a new English major starting in Fall 2017.
Although this is big and wonderful news, it mostly affects students who will enter DePaul in 2017-2018 and after. Your English major as it exists now will not change. The requirements you see posted in your Degree Progress Report will remain the requirements you must fulfill to graduate.
However, there are three ways the new program may affect your studies—depending on your personal progress in the English major:
- All Majors: We will change the name of the Diverse Traditions (DT) requirement to Race, Ethnicity, and Sexuality (or RES). In future terms, as you look to complete your DT requirement, scan the schedule for “RES” classes instead of DT.
- Newer Majors: Autumn Quarter 2017 is the last time the English department will offer the current English Core classes, ENG 220 and ENG 221. If you have yet to complete ENG 220 and/or ENG 221, you must enroll in your missing core class/es this fall. Failure to do so may negate your ability to easily complete the current English major.
- On-the-Fence Majors: If you aren’t sure whether you prefer to concentrate in Lit Studies or Creative Writing, or if you are thinking of switching from an English major to an English double major, please know that changing your program plan after June 15, 2017 will default you into the new major requirements. Should this happen, meet with James Phelps (firstname.lastname@example.org) right away.
If you have any questions about the new major, or if you are interested in switching into the new major, please schedule an appointment with James Phelps in BlueStar.
