Futures for English Studies brings together chapters by leading writers across the curriculum area of English to investigate how the component parts of English (literature, language, and creative writing) are located institutionally in higher education and to explore the interdisciplinary prospects of a subject which spans the humanities and social sciences. Through explorations of changing foci in a variety of contexts, the book examines the value and purpose of teaching and researching English language, literature and creative writing in the twenty-first century, both within Anglophone countries and the wider world. The contributors, all practicing educators and researchers in the field, bring a wide range of perspectives to the theme of the development of the discipline, and illustrate that the strengths of English Studies as an academic subject lie not only in its traditional breadth and depth, but also in a readiness to adapt, experiment, and engage with other subjects.

This collection is unique in bringing together key thinkers on language and literature to discuss the future of English in Asia. Many of the contributors are themselves responsible for important sub-genres in English linguistics and literary studies and this collection gives them the opportunity to respond to each other directly. The different chapters also respond to different contemporary debates and emerging trends and discourses that are hugely important for the future of English language teaching in schools across Asia. This volume is also ground-breaking in bringing English literary studies and Applied English Linguistics together in the contemporary Asian context. The Future of English in Asia includes studies on the following subject areas: Cultural Translation in World Englishes, Multilingual Education, English Futures and the function of Literature, English Literary Studies in Japan, and English and Social Media in Asia. Well into this century, it appears that it is still very difficult to know what to expect when it comes to the future of English. The future of English will continue to be determined by complex local contexts. As it has in other parts of the world, the future of English in Asia will continue to rely on the proliferation of its transformations as much as its hegemonic status. This volume reflects the widespread acknowledgement that whatever future English has will inevitably be shaped by its fate in Asia. The collection will be a welcome resource for scholars and students of English linguistics, English literary studies, and topics related to the teaching of English in Asia.

This study provides the first substantial history and analysis of the To-Day and To-Morrow series of 110 books, published by Kegan Paul Trench and Trubner (and E. P. Dutton in the USA) from 1923 to 1931, in which writers chose a topic, described its present, and predicted its future. Contributors included J. B. S. Haldane, Bertrand Russell, Vernon Lee, Robert Graves, Vera Brittain, Sylvia Pankhurst, Hugh McDiarmid, James Jeans, J. D. Bernal, Winifred Holtby, Andre Maurois, and many others. The study combines a comprehensive account of its interest, history, and range with a discussion of its key concerns, tropes, and influence. The argument focuses on science and technology, not only as the subject of many of the volumes, but also as method--especially through the paradigm of the human sciences--applied to other disciplines; and as a source of metaphors for representing other domains. It also includes chapters on war, technology, cultural studies, and literature and the arts. This book aims to reinstate the series as a vital contribution to the writing of modernity, and to reappraise modernism's relation to the future, establishing a body of progressive writing which moves beyond the discourses of post-Darwinian degeneration and post-war disenchantment, projecting human futures rather than mythic or classical pasts. It also shows how, as a co-ordinated body of futurological writing, the series is also revealing about the nature and practices of modern futurology itself.

An effort to contribute to the "story" of English teaching in the United States at the dawn of the new millennium, this book presents 17 essays that tell diverse and complex stories of the value and difficulty of teaching English. The voices in this volume represent an eclectic rather than a comprehensive group of teachers and scholars, some familiar, some perhaps less so, who draw from their experiences in secondary and postsecondary English classrooms to examine the question of the relevance of their work to the lives of their students. After an introduction: "The (Ir)relevance of English at the Turn of the Millennium" (Robert P. Yagelski), essays in Section I, Contexts: American Culture and the Study of English, are: (1) "The Academic Language Gap" (Gerald Graff); (2) "When the Multicultural Leaves the Race: Some Common Terms Reconsidered" (Victor Villanueva); (3) "It's Not an Economy, Stupid! The Education-as-Product Metaphor as Viewed from the English Classroom" (Scott A. Leonard); (4) "Literacy, Gender, and Adolescence: School-Sponsored English as Identity Maintenance" (Margaret J. Finders); (5) "On the Business of English Studies" (Stephen M. North); and "Exchange: Economies, Politics, and English Studies" (Finders, North, Leonard, and Villanueva). Essays in Section II, Changes: English Classrooms in an Evolving World, are: (6) "The High School English Teacher: A Relevant Member in a Good Tribe" (Donald L. Tinney); (7) "Promoting a Relevant Classroom Literacy: Personal Growth and Communal Action in a Middle Grades Curricular Development Project" (Sarah Robbins, with Mary Miesiaszek and Beth Davis); (8) "Women in Mind: The Culture of First-Year English and the Nontraditional Returning Woman Student" (Patricia Shelley Fox); (9) "Community College English: Diverse Backgrounds, Diverse Needs" (Kathleen R. Cheney); (10) "The Relevance of Paulo Freire on Liberatory Dialogue and Writing in the Classroom" (Christina Kirklighter); (11) "Surviving Intact: African American Women Negotiating Scholarly Identities through Graduate School Writing" (Juanita Rodgers Comfort); and "Exchange: Literacy, Classrooms, and Students' Lives" (Fox, Tinney, Kirklighter, Cheney, Robbins, Comfort). Essays in Section III, Futures: English Studies for the New Millennium, are: (12) "The Future of English Studies Made Personal, or, The Subversive Act of Teaching Well" (Valerie Hardin Drye); (13) "Cybrarians and Scholars in the New English Classroom" (Ted Nellen); (14) "The Past and Future of (Two-Year) College English Studies" (Mark Reynolds); (15) "Enacting Cultures: The Practice of Comparative Cultural Study" (Paula Mathieu and James J. Sosnoski); (16) "Critical Technological Literacy and English Studies: Teaching, Learning, and Action" (Richard J. Selfe and Cynthia L. Selfe); (17) "The Plural Commons: Meeting the Future of English Studies" (Kathleen Blake Yancey); and "Exchange: Language, Technology, and the Future of English Studies" (Drye, Reynolds, Mathieu, Sosnoski, R. Selfe, and Yancey). Contains an afterword by Richard M. Ohmann. (RS).
