So English studies are important at any time. But it is harder to live up to our own Schools of English and contemporary society 19 professions than we realize. Those of us who teach in Schools of English assert a case for the importance of great literature and tend to assume that we have thereby made the case for the importance of Schools of English. Which is to assume that our practice as teachers lives up to the challenge of the works we study, and this is not often so. * An increased respect for the life of language, and for the unpremeditated textures of experience – how are these qualities, which a training in English ought to encourage, valued in contemporary society?

Very strong and, eventually, persuasive arguments were made that, whatever our intentions, these volumes would take on the status of, if not the definitive, then at least an authoritative version of the early days of CCCS and, according to our critics, we had not got the story right. After much negotiation the entries and organisation of the volumes were agreed. Perhaps this is another example of the difficulty of positioning and of claiming new positions in relation to versions of the past. We were delighted when Larry Grossberg, Elspeth Probyn and Johan Fornäs agreed to introduce the three sections which form this volume.

This will also provide an opportunity for different approaches and disciplines to be brought to bear on particular topics. On Monday afternoons, a ‘closed’ Seminar, limited to full and part-time workers at the Centre, will be held. These will be critical-analytic sessions, in which each member will be invited to participate both by way of contributions to discussion and the presentation of papers. The purpose here is to get close work going on a fairly narrow and clearly-defined topic. ‘Evidence’ – such as examples, photographs, records or film – will, so far as is possible, be directly presented or available beforehand.
