Linguistic LingField(s):  Ling & Literature

Query:   A graduate student (Masters' candidate) in one of my Linguistics
courses is thinking of pursuing a Ph.D. in the areas of stylistics
and/or literary pragmatics. She would like to know what
Ph.D. programs are out there which have specializations in the
application of linguistic concepts to the analysis of literary texts.
Her main interest is English literature, so I assume the most
appropriate sort of program for her will turn out to be in an English
department (rather than in a Linguistics dept.), but any suggestions
would be appreciated. She's willing to relocate pretty much anywhere
in the US, but would prefer to remain in the country.

Please reply to me directly.

Thank you very much,
Rich Epstein.
