Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


This one-day workshop took place in the context of a British Academy / Leverhulme SRG project on 'The Child in War (Con)texts 1945 - 1949, and included participants from the UK, the USA (Louisiana State University) and (by skype) the University of Hawai'i, Manao. I gave a paper entitled; 'Echoes of Innocence: the idea(l) of childhood in German narrative fiction 1945 - 1949.' The papers given at the workshop provided the basis for a subsequent co-edited special issue of German Life and Letters 69/4 (October 2016).
