Australian University Heads of English (AUHE) is a peak body drawing together English departments at more than 30 universities as well as existing literary associations. We aim to be a forum in which the present and future of literary studies in Australia is discussed and shaped and will address issues such as the relationship between English in secondary and tertiary education, quality assurance in teaching, research funding, enrollments, curriculum as well as pedagogic strategies for teaching literature in English.
