About Us

EnglanTY is a blog by the staff and students of the Department of English at the University of Turku, Finland.

The blog title comes from the Finnish words for English and Turku University, Englanti + Turun Yliopisto (TY). The expression ‘what the dickens’ in the subtitle is derived from Shakespeare’s play, The Merry Wives of Windsor, where the phrase first appears. As Charles Dickens was one of the great British novelists of the 19th century, the title now has a double meaning.
