‘English Votes for English Laws’ — a viable answer to the English Question? ‘English Votes for English Laws’ — a viable answer to the English Question?

Description

Last week the government published its detailed proposals for introducing English Votes for English Laws (EVEL) into the House of Commons. This is a significant moment in our constitutional history primarily because these changes reflect the acceptance of the need to institutionalise a collective English interest in the legislature, and the conviction that there is a growing and legitimate sense of grievance concerning England’s position within the UK. The primary rationale offered for introducing EVEL is to bring Westminster up to date with the implications of devolution elsewhere within the UK. In a context where further devolution is anticipated for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, it is becoming harder to ignore demands that English interests be given greater consideration in pa Last week the government published its detailed proposals for introducing English Votes for English Laws (EVEL) into the House of Commons.

21L.703 English Renaissance Drama: Theatre and Society in the Age of Shakespeare (MIT) 21L.703 English Renaissance Drama: Theatre and Society in the Age of Shakespeare (MIT)

Description

Shakespeare "doth bestride the narrow world" of the English Renaissance "like a colossus," leaving his contemporaries "walk under his large legs and peep about" to find themselves in "dishonourable graves." This course aims in part to correct this grave injustice by surveying the extraordinary output of playwrights whose names have largely been eclipsed by their more luminous compatriot: Marlowe, Jonson, Webster, and Ford, among others. Reading Shakespeare as just one of a group of practitioners -- many of whom were more popular than him during and even after his remarkable career -- will restore, I hope, a sense not just of the richness of English Renaissance drama, but also that of the historical and cultural moment of the English Renaissance itself.

a Inglesa (siglos XVI-XX) (2009) a Inglesa (siglos XVI-XX) (2009)

Description

This course offers a pocket-guide to English Poetry from the end of the sixteenth to the last decades of the twentieth century. It combines a historical, critical and theoretical approach and aims to raise questions rather than provide answers. Its aim is not to teach contents but skills: it is hoped that at the end of the course the student will have overcome a common illness, consisting in a persistent phobia generally experienced by those exposed to a poem in English. The course will aim to show how to read, analyse and comment a poem, i.e. how to think and convey thoughts to others in spoken and written English. The course is divided into formal lectures (clases tericas) and seminars (clases prcticas). Lectures will provide an introduction to English poetry in a given period.

English grammar in context

Description

What are the differences between spoken and written English? Is use of grammar more or less complex than it appears? This free course, English grammar in context, looks at the way grammar can be used as a tool for adapting our communications (both written and spoken). This OpenLearn course will help you to see how language is intertwined with both describing a view of the world and interacting with others in that world. First published on Thu, 24 Mar 2016 as English grammar in context. To find out more visit The Open University's Openlearn website. Creative-Commons 2016
