Engage with the world, realize your goals, and create a future for yourself.

The Emory & Henry English Department invites you to become part of our community of readers and writers, preparing to enter the professional world as teachers, publishers, librarians, lawyers, technical writers, authors, technical writers, and entrepreneurs. 

Our community extends well beyond the classroom, into student organizations such as Frostiana Poetry Society and Ampersand, college’s literary magazine. We also come together for several events throughout the year. Special events include our fall Literary Festival celebrating a writer with roots in Appalachia, our mid-winter Burns Night dinner, and the spring Leidig Poetry Lectureship.

When you think of Ireland, perhaps you think of shamrocks, leprechauns, and Guinness. What you may not know is that the island of Ireland contains two separate countries: the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Until 1998, Northern Ireland was a war zone, as Catholics and Protestants fought each other for control of the North. Now that the violence has ended, Feezell presented his research and asked how individuals view the limits of their communities. </p></div>
