Reading Circle for teachers of English, spring term 2020
Welcome to the Reading Circle! The idea is that teachers of English read some relevant contemporary novels over one term and meet once a month to discuss the books. There will be two themes this term: Contemporary American Fiction and Northern Ireland. Both themes are connected to other professional development activities which we offer this year.
The meetings will take place at Uppsala University, Campus Blåsenhus on Mondays 17.30 – 19.15.
