The School of English has been working hard to make the Summer Term as exciting and intellectually stimulating as possible. Welcome to Summer School 2021 – a timetable of events including talks, prominent guest speakers, readings, and a range of opportunities to develop your skills.
Please join the many different activities on offer:
- Do you want to learn the basics of coding? Sign up: Hacking the Humanities.
- Do you want to know more about the connections between literature and activism? Consider: Literature & Activism.
- Are you interested in exploring the ways in which writers have reflected on the environment and mental health? Join: Literature, Mental Health & Environment.
- What can literature tell us about living in a post-Covid world? Contemplate: After the Deluge.
- Why not improve your skills in project planning and completion, or (if you are a Stage 3 student) apply for a research internship?
- Or join the Research Webinar Series and learn about why literature matters, how racism structures experience, what’s new in Caribbean literature, and are intellectuals politically complicit?
- Or meet publishers’ agents and directors in the Creative Writing Series.
Please browse through the listings below; find what interests you. All events take place online this year, so you can drop in from whatever location is convenient for you. All students, undergraduate and postgraduate, are welcome! Come and be a part of our unique staff and student research community this summer term.
