“Illuminating the English Major: What Do Students Really Want & How Can Departments Respond?”

Hosted by Janine Utell


Tired of hearing about the decline of the English major? Curious to hear what students value about studying English, and what they’d like to see in the future? Ready for some fresh thinking and new insights from departments across the country?

Join Norton editors for highlights from the more than 2,000 responses – from 500 colleges and universities—to The Norton Survey of English Majors and a lively conversation with Janine Utell, Program Manager at the Modern Language Association (MLA). Janine will share resources and prompt participants to think creatively and as a community about concrete actions and directions for the field.

There will be ample time for Q&A and the event will be recorded for anyone who cannot attend live.
