Welcome to English: Shared Futures 2020!
On this page you will find the full programme of papers, sessions, dialogues, salons and lectures for the conference.
You can click on each day to explore everything that’s on offer and you can search by name of panel convenor and title of session. When you’re ready, you can “star” sessions you’re particularly interested in to build your own personal schedule.
The plenary lectures will be held in the Opera Theatre, Royal Northern College of Music. All the other sessions run in parallel and will take place in rooms in the RNCM, Manchester Metropolitan University, or the University of Manchester. The Publishers’ Hall and small press area will be in the RNCM, where there is also a café. We’re also running a range of fringe events (further details available soon). Details of rooms, and routes between them will be supplied shortly.
There’s no official lunch break, though tea and coffee will be available throughout the conference in the RNCM, and details of local cafés and restaurants will be provided on the web-site soon.
For ease of reference, you can also download a simple PDF programme. There will be a very limited number of paper programmes available at the conference for delegates with accessibility requirements.
We very much hope you’ll enjoy seeing what’s on offer, and that you’ll enjoy discovering new scholarship and subjects as well as more familiar interests.
Please note that the room numbers are placeholders; we will add in the actual names of the rooms closer to the conference.
