The Institute of English Studies runs an active programme of research seminars and reading groups. All seminars and reading groups are free and open to the public.

Covid-19: The Institute of English Studies and the University of London are currently following the advice of Public Health England. On Friday 20 March, Senate House closes until at least the 20 April, and so all seminars that take place in Senate House have been cancelled. Please see individual seminar page for more information. Some seminars are attempting remote meetings, and details about how to join these are given on seminar pages.
