Global Futures


Marion Thain (New York University) –
A View from the US: The Crisis in the Humanities, the Interdisciplinary ‘Liberal Arts’, and New Futures for English

Rick Rylance (School of Advanced Study, University of London) – AHRC: ODA and Global Initiatives

Alison Waller (University of Roehampton and ESSE Representative for University English) – ESSE and the View from Europe

How might views from abroad enable a new perspective on the future of the discipline of English in the UK? In this panel we offer vantage points from Europe and the US, and consider how such comparisons might inform our understanding of what’s happening both in the UK and in the global (trans)formation of the discipline.
