English Shared Futures

English Shared Futures

Since 2017, University English has worked biannually with universities and Learned Societies in English to bring the largest cross disciplinary English conference in the UK to a host university. English: Shared Futures is a cross between an academic conference and a festival of literature that has been designed as a platform for research, pedagogy and creativity and aimed at celebrating, strengthening and caring for the English subject.

We are delighted to announce that the fourth biannual English: Shared Futures conference is to be held at York University in summer 2025. Keep an eye on the website and social media for forthcoming news on the event and a call for papers, panels and performances.
