Future Englishes and Higher Education

12:00 - 13:00 Friday 5 June 2020

Hosted by Professor Katy Shaw (Northumbria University), this one-hour session will provide space to connect with other members who are interested in looking to the future of English in HE. The discussion will be informal, and you’ll have chance to talk about the issues that matter to you. We’re keen to focus on looking ahead and finding opportunities for hopefulness in the face of challenging times. Below we suggest some prompts for discussion, and we invite you to suggest other questions when you register:

  • If you could change one thing about the discipline of English, what would it be?
  • What books, novels, plays, etc. are sustaining you at the moment and why?
  • How might higher education respond to the covid crisis in positive ways?
  • What are your thoughts on the British Academy’s research in the Qualified for the Future report?
  • What message would you like to give to all sixth-form students who are considering their degree options at the moment?

This event will take place on Zoom. Once you've registered for a ticket, you will receive information on how to join the meeting.
