Social Change and English: A Study of Three English Departments 1945-1965

A new website has been developed with regard to the three-year project - funded by the Leverhulme Trust - on Social Change and English, 1945-1965. The aim of the project is to produce a history of developments in the teaching of English in three London secondary schools in the twenty years after the war. The research methods involve interviews with teachers and pupils together with the study of documents, photographs and films (including student work). The most immediate aim of the project is to record people’s memories while there is still time, and make these available. The website contains information about the schools in the study, the project team and the advisory board as well as publishing interim findings.
