U-M Department of English V.1—2000-2004
The University of Michigan Department of English Language and Literature has long been recognized as one of the top English departments in the nation. As one of the largest departments within the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA), English serves as an extraordinary center of creativity, inquiry, and discovery with a proud tradition of leadership in scholarship and teaching. With over eighteen thousand alumni, eight hundred active students, and nearly three hundred full-time faculty members, lecturers, and graduate student instructors, the Department offers not only opportunities for study of all aspects of English language and its literature, but also a well-developed, diverse, and active community within the University.
In the fall of 2000 Anthony assumed responsibility for the Department of English website. Part of this responsibility involved the complete redesign of the department's website. Working to meet the changing needs of faculty, students, alumni and staff, from concept to completion the site was given a complete overhaul from its information architecture to its front end. The new site incorporated numerous advances in web technology, including the use of dynamic menus to ease navigation, the inclusion of a search engine, database-driven site content, and the incorporation of cascading style sheets to control the site's design and text formatting. This new design was launched in conjunction with a newly formatted alumni newsletter in the spring of 2001 (also designed by Anthony) and remained in place until the most recent redesign in 2004.
