British Research Colloquium 2019


In the last week of this winter semester a British Research Colloquium will take place again. This will be organised as a block seminar on


Tuesday, February 11th, 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm,

and on

Wednesday, February 12th, 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Venue: Centre for British Studies, Mohrenstr. 60, 10117 Berlin, room 105.


The colloquium will have the character of a workshop, which means that unfinished and incomplete projects are very much welcome. Also, we would like to hear from those who do not have a project yet, but only a research idea for the time being, who have reached a dead end with their research or who want to discuss concrete source and methodological problems. But of course, polished lectures on finished studies will also find an interested audience!

Interested parties who are not on the mailing list are also cordially invited to present their research in English or German. Please feel free to pass on this information.
