Engerom Symposium: The Colonial

Public lecture by Lene Schøsler: '1066 and the Norman Colonization of the English Language'

The Institute of English, Germanic and Romance Studies invites members of the Faculty of Humanities to participate tin the continuing series of symposia on the theme of 'The Colonial'. The purpose of this symposium is both to bring together scholars working in similar or adjacent fields who might be institutionally separated and to explore the ways in which a topic such as 'the colonial' might be relevant to scholars in very different fields within the Humanities.

The symposium will be held throughout the academic year on the afternoon of the last Wednesday of every month, from February to May, and from September to November.

Place 27.0.09 Time: 13-16

The language of the symposium will be English: visiting professors and international students are warmly encouraged to participate.

Refreshments will be served in the break between the paper and the discussion
