Refiguring the Ph.D. in English Studies

Writing, Doctoral Education, And Suny-albany's Fusion-based Curriculum
A non fiction book by

North (English, SUNY, Albany) reconsiders assumptions about how English Ph.D. programs came to be, what purposes they serve, and what they ought to become namely, more grounded in writing. The first part traces English doctoral education in the American university from its German origins to a 1987 crisis of disciplinary and professional identity. Part two examines one response to the crisis: the launching by SUNY, Albany's English department of a curriculum titled "Writing, Teaching, and Criticism." A final section argues that a fusion-based curriculum represents the best available option for doctoral education. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
