Two lecture series by Prof. Neumeier's Chair for English Literature

The Chair for English Literature is happy to announce two new lecture series this winter term 2017-18.

For Perspectives on Shakespeare the English Department at the University of Cologne will come together to give students a take on the didactic, linguistic, postcolonial and gender perspectives one can have on Shakespeare, while guest lecturers from Bonn and Verona will take a look at dance in Shakespeare and whether Shakespeare could be considered a classic in German theatre.

The second lecture, Introduction to Australian Studies - (Trans-)Disciplinary Perspectives, will provide an Introduction to Australian Studies, encouraging a dialogue between different disciplinary perspectives ranging from Linguistics and Literary/Media Studies, to History, Geography, Anthropology, and Biology.

This course will work with ILIAS, the University of Cologne’s e-learning platform. Please register for the seminar’s ILIAS course as soon as possible. All assigned readings and information will be accessible via ILIAS.
