How can we generate a diverse and socially inclusive literature canon fit for the 21st century?

Join Professor Sarah Churchwell in conversation with writer Kit de Waal and Professor Karina van Dalen-Oskam about the benefits of a more diverse, inclusive reading ‘diet’. From Black Lives Matter to the #MeToo movement and Extinction Rebellion, we are living in a time when many vocal campaigners demand changes to the way in which society is run. These debates affect the books we read, teach in schools and that get turned into popular dramas.

The English literature canon – the books that are generally agreed to be good, important and worth studying – is also under revision.
