Exhibition Opening Events

HAPPY IN BERLIN?
English Writers in the City, the 1920s and Beyond


"Happy in Berlin? English Writers in the City, The 1920s and Beyond" takes a
fresh look at the Berlin myth and uncovers lesser known writers, queer identities,
psychoanalysis, and ambiguous politics in the works of writers such as
Christopher Isherwood, Vita Sackville-West, Stephen Spender, Diana Mosley,
and Alix Strachey.
This exhibition is a collaboration between Prof Stefano Evangelista, Trinity
College, Oxford University, Prof Gesa Stedman, Centre for British Studies,
HU Berlin, the Literaturhaus Berlin, and the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford.
It has received the support of the AHRC, Oxford in Berlin, The Oxford Research
Centre in the Humanities, and Humboldt-Universitäts-Gesellschaft.
Gefördert durch OPEN HUMBOLDT Freiräume aus Mitteln der Berlin
University Alliance im Rahmen der Exzellenzstrategie von Bund und Ländern.
