English in the world
We have a strong role to play in the cultural life of the city, and our students can engage in local organisations and communities through reading groups and placements, partly through our links with The Reader Organisation. In 2010-11 the School of English launched a collaborative project with the Everyman and Playhouse Theatres. In addition to the experience and practical knowledge this gives to our students, these historic Liverpool theatres are now able to partake of the academic expertise and world-leading research of academics in the School of English.
