Description

Following feedback from our TeacherHub>English community members, at this year's forum we will be focusing on American Literature at KS5.

We would like YOUR INPUT to finalise the details of the agenda, but it will include a:

  • Lecture on 'American literary dreams' from one of our academics on A-Level American Literature texts, with a focus on The Great Gatsby
  • Seminars on the American novel, drama and poetry (topics TBA, pending feedback from registered attendees)
  • Teacher roundtable panel discussion.

** When you register, please send details of what you would like to get from this event and which texts or topics are of most interest to you to teacherhub.english@rhul.ac.uk. Thank you! **

The forum will include wine, refreshments and a finger food buffet.

Please register by Thursday 22 June, to help us with numbers for catering. Thank you.
