March 30, 2017

Greetings! I write as the new chair of the English Department to update you on our program:

In other news, we have welcomed new faculty: Assistant Professor Rebekah Mitsein and Visiting Professor and Interim Director of the Center for Irish Programs James Murphy.

Over the summer we updated our website and launched a new digital initiative, English Now, that highlights English majors in the news, provides updates on the state of the discipline, and lists internships and jobs for current students. Headed by Associate Professor Caroline Bicks, English Now also promotes our new course in professional skills-building. Alums interested in participating in the workshop should contact me; it's a great way to help current majors explore ways to use research and writing skills beyond BC!

Finally, we love hearing news about our graduates. Email us with your updates so we can spread the word.

Sincerely,

Amy Boesky
Chair, English Department
