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 closed until at least the 20 April. We have taken the decision to postpone large gatherings scheduled to take place from now until the end of May in response to this evolving public health challenge. We will be issuing refunds to those who have registered. Please check individual events listed for more information. If there is any change in UK government advice we will notify all registered attendees immediately.
