Meeting Description: English: Shared Futures
A major conference across the discipline
Newcastle Civic Centre, 5-7 July, 2017

The English Association, University English, the National Association of Writers in Education and the Institute of English Studies are joining together to host a major conference for the whole of the discipline of English. We believe that the study of English - literary studies of every period, language studies and creative writing - is an important, dynamic and collaborative enterprise. This is the first ever conference for all of English language, literature and creative writing in the UK, and it will celebrate the discipline's intellectual strength, diversity and creativity, and explore its futures in the nations of the UK and across the world.

The plenary speakers include:

- Deborah Cameron on Language and the Problem of Female Authority

The conference will host leading and agenda-setting intellectual research and creative practice, support work in pedagogy and in professional development, offer access to a range of publishers and agents, feature panels from a range of our subject associations, and, with sessions from colleagues both inside and outside the discipline, consider the place of English in the wider cultural and political world. The conference is especially keen to involve Early Career Academics and Post-Graduate Research Students and will have many dedicated sessions designed by and for these groups, as well as involving colleagues from all areas and career stages of the discipline.
