Teaching Post-2000 British Literature Survey
(Northumbria University UK, supported by British Council Literature)

A new research project is exploring international awareness about the extent to which post-millennial British literature is being taught globally today, how colleagues overseas are learning about developments in the field, and what additional support and resources would be useful to you in future. 

By taking part in the survey you will help the British Higher Education sector to better understand and tailor resources and events to meet your current needs and enhance your future opportunities to engage with new British writing. 

The survey is designed to explore your current awareness and experience of teaching post-millennial British literature in higher education settings based outside of the UK and Ireland.

It defines post-millennial British literature as all novels, short stories, plays, poems and digital writings commercially published in print or online by British authors in the English language from 2000 to 2020 inclusive.  

The survey will take only 7 minutes to complete. 

Your responses to the survey questions will be anonymised and aggregated in the published research. 

The results of the research will be published by Northumbria University, UK in late 2020.

If you have any questions about the survey please email Professor Katy Shaw
