About this book

This collection discusses the condition of the subject of English in UK higher education and elsewhere. It understands 'English' not as idealistic or theoretical concept, but as practice made material in institutional, theoretical and human contexts. The book confronts what, how and why we teach one of the most popular university disciplines.

Reviews

'It is a while since the subject took a long, hard look at itself and so Philip Martin's book is an invaluable and timely intervention into discussions about the position and direction of the discipline at a moment when English Studies is still deliberating ways forward after the theory wars. This stimulating collection of wide-ranging essays reveals once more the subject's diversity while registering a thoughtful anxiety over threats from without as much as undertaking a renewed scrutiny of differences of opinion within.' - Professor Peter Childs, Dean of Research, University of Gloucestershire, UK
