While increasing numbers of people are emphasising the English aspect of their identity, Englishness can take different forms. For some it may be an ethnic identity; for others a more inclusive, civic, identity. Class, place and faith may also shape what we mean by 'English'.

This important seminar will explore barriers to and opportunities for an inclusive Englishness that is equally accessible to all parts of England and its diverse population.

Speakers will include:

  • Sunder Katwala, British Future
  • Richard Webber, University of Newcastle
  • Liam Byrne, Labour MP
  • Dr Debra Grey, University of Winchester
  • Dr Charles Leddy-Owen, Portsmouth University
  • Dr Ariana Giovannini, De Montfort University
  • David Goodhart, Policy Exchange
  • Dr Nasar Meer, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
  • Dr Maria Sobolewska, University of Manchester
  • Prof Tariq Modood, University of Bristol
