Department of British Literature and Culture / Department of English Didactics, Goettingen University

2012 marks the 250th anniversary of the election of John Tompson as the first Professor of English at Goettingen University. His English Miscellanies was one of the first English publications ever in Germany, and was also the first anthology composed in an academic context for the purpose of the mediation of English literature and culture to German students of English. The Miscellanies was therefore an important watershed in the development of British-German literary and cultural transfer.

New Voices in Irish Criticism: "Legitimate Ireland"
19th – 21st April 2012
Institute of Irish Studies
Queen's University, Belfast

From plantations to Grattan's parliament, poitín distillers to the IMF bailout, the Irish have always had a fraught relationship with institutions of political, social and religious power.
