'In the midst of things': COVID-19 and English Edited by Rob Penman, Jenny Richards, and Antony Rowland.

Welcome to this edition of the English Association’s occasional journal, Issues in English, a publication that has in the past covered topics as diverse as travel writing, teaching literature of the World Wars and the Shoah, and Brexit. After the events of the past few months, it seems entirely appropriate that this edition of Issues should focus on the effect of COVID-19 on the discipline of English, both in schools and in universities, and reflect on what is happening and how we are responding while we are, as Ben Davis so aptly puts it, ‘in the midst of things’. This issue catches contributors’ experiences of the initial phase of the pandemic: our abrupt and discombobulating transition to life online. As a member, here is your complimentary PDF copy.
