SWESSE (The Swedish Society for the Study of English) is a national, academic society of researchers and teachers of English at Swedish universities. With the goal of promoting Swedish research on English in the fields of linguistics, literature, and didactics, SWESSE serves to initiate and support national as well as international research activity. Essential to this achievement is a bi-annual conference, the National Forum for English Studies.

In 2021, the National Forum will take place at Södertörn University with the theme, "Rethinking English Studies".
