English is the most widely shared national identity amongst English residents and the recent political choices of English identifiers have diverged significantly from British identifiers. But what do people mean when they say they are English?

This seminar brings together leading academics, commentators and politicians to share their understanding of the narratives of 'being English', and whether these are shared stories or are tempered by class, geography or race.

Confirmed speakers include: David McCrone (Edinburgh), Anoop Nayak (Newcastle), Sivamohan Valluvan (Wolverhampton), Katharine Tyler (Exeter), Lisa Mckenzie (LSE), Robin Mann (Bangor), Cllr Satvir Kaur (Southampton City Council), Don John (Race equality consultant; founder, Southampton Black History Month), Seminar organised by John Denham, Centre for English Identity and Politics (Winchester) and Charlie Leddy-Owen, Citizenship, Race and Belonging (Portsmouth).
