Description - English: The Condition of the Subject by Philip W. Martin
This collection discusses the condition of the subject of English in UK higher education and elsewhere. It understands 'English' not as idealistic or theoretical concept, but as practice made material in institutional, theoretical and human contexts. The book confronts what, how and why we teach one of the most popular university disciplines.
