History of European Ideas 40 (1):1-7 (2014)
Summary Ian Hunter's early work on the history of literature education and the emergence of English as school subject issued a bold challenge to traditional accounts that have in the main focused on English either as knowledge of a particular field or as ideology.

The challenge for the field is to advance this historical work and to examine possible implications for English teaching
