Emma Barnes (Salford PhD), Hannah Bury (Salford PhD), Natalie Ilsley (Manchester PhD) and Jade Munslow Ong (Salford) have been awarded £4973 AHRC NWCDTP funding for a Research Impact project entitled ‘South African Modernism as Decolonising Methodology for A-Level English Literature’ (Sep 2021-Jun 2022). They will use the funding to develop and run a programme of teaching activities aimed at A-Level English Literature students in association with the AHRC Research Grant ‘South African Modernism 1880-2020’ (PI: Jade Munslow Ong, Co-I: Andrew van der Vlies, RA: Emma Barnes).
The aims of the project are threefold:
· To support and enhance decolonising efforts in the study of English Literature;

An associated article by Jade Munslow Ong, titled ‘Decolonising the English Literature A-Level via the South African Ex-centric’ has also been accepted for publication in English journal, and will be out at the end of the year.
