A Project for English

The aim of the conference is to promote thinking and work on how English might be imagined.


Beyond opening up and exploring the tensions and contradictions of the School-subject English as it is presently experienced and produced, it aims to develop an agenda for change that pays attention to the diverse interests, voices and needs of those who have a legitimate stake in English. In that spirit the conference will bring together teachers, policy makers and academics.
The conference will be a forum for dialogue, grounded in the experiences and the reality of teachers in English classrooms, and in concerns around relevant policy needs for a curriculum focussed on the real needs of learners in their future lives.
