BRITISH STUDIES 2019 – Anarchy in the UK?

As of mid December 2018 the UK is in a full-blown constitutional crisis over Brexit. As a result of intense and unprecedented political turbulence, politicians and one major newspaper have predicted serious chaos and social unrest. Feelings are certainly running high – so much so that it really would appear that there is a chance of the title of the famous 1977 song Anarchy in the UK coming true in some shape or form.

With the prospect of such tremendous upheaval, surely you need to get yourself (and your colleagues) to British Studies 2019 to hear more about what’s going on in the UK, to learn more about popular culture in the British Isles, to check how much you really know about the UK education system and whether you really know what a UK Christmas is like. Oh, and if that’s not enough(!), you’ll have a chance to relax and network with colleagues, look at the remarkable events in the US through the eyes of an evangelical Christian as well as to check and upgrade your vocabulary for the latest words and phrases.

A proper toolkit for the school year ahead will be on offer… See you there?
