English Studies and teaching has a varied and contested history of responding to, intervening in, or insulating itself from the political climate of any given moment. This roundtable will debate how our research and teaching is being impacted by, and how it can rise to, the current moment of a newly polarised politics, and the political earthquakes of 2016.
