Additional Information: In June 2005 an international conference – A Project for English – was held at the Institute of Education, under the auspices of the School of Culture, Language and Communication. This issue of a widely read academic journal is the result of that conference and includes papers from authors in Great Britain and Australia. Themes of the conference included: What is English and the related but increasingly urgent question: What is English for? Accounts of two English teachers, one experienced and one a student teacher, are placed within a tradition that pays attention to the subjectivities, cultures and histories of school students. The voices of these teachers and their school students are set against the orthodoxy of objective-led teaching where literacy practices of various kinds are too often determined by the inculcation of predetermined, generalisable outcomes – such as the KS3 Framework in England.
