What did you most enjoy reading when you studied English here? Which literary works have stayed with you over the years? The Faculty is developing a reading app called LitHits that would help break down barriers to reading and accessing literature, and we need your help. Please fill in the online form here – it takes just a couple of minutes and will help us enormously in compiling a richly varied and diverse range of textual excerpts to put in the app. Many thanks to those of you who have already sent in suggestions, and feel free to send us more!
– from Professor Kirsten Shepherd-Barr, leader of LitHits
