Wenn Sie an England denken, woran denken Sie dann als erstes? Ist Ihnen das Terrain, das Sie mit der englischen Sprache betreten bekannt, oder erschließen sich Ihnen bisher nur die touristischen Attraktionen entlang ausgetretener Pfade? 

Erfahren Sie mehr über Englands Geschichte und politische Prägung, sein Verhältnis zu Deutschland und begreifen Sie mehr, was die englische Kultur und Sprache auszeichnet. An acht Nachmittagen haben Sie die Gelegenheit, in kurzen Vorträgen und im offenen Dialog mit Ihrem Dozent neue Sichtweisen im Umgang mit der englischen Kultur zu erlangen.

England’s Flight from Europe (24.10.2018)

The phenomenon known as Brexit is nothing new. Nor was it new when Shakespeare wrote:

‘This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of Majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise;
This fortress built by Nature for herself,
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands;
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.’

George III: America’s Last King (14.11.2018)

George III, of the House of Hanover, was King of Great Britain and Ireland from 1760 to 1820, lost Britain its American colonies, was intermittently mad throughout his reign, founded the Royal Academy of Arts and was immensely popular with the British people.

Prince Albert (19.12.2018)

Albert was the Bavarian husband and consort of Britain’s Queen Victoria and a great influence on his young wife. She never recovered from his premature death.

The Age of British Decadence 1880 – 1914 (23.01.2019)

In late-Victorian and Edwardian Britain, the ruling classes forgot how to rule and became corrupted by wealth and the vices of materialism.

‘Das Land ohne Musik’ (20.02.2019)

The music, the life and times of Edward Elgar and Vaughan Williams – two great 20th-century English composers.

‘I think Vaughan Williams is the most underestimated, the most misunderstood of all the great 20th-century English composers,” the music historian, Samuel Johnson says. “What a complex and disturbing artist he is, a man who wrote some of the most deeply unsettling music of our time.’ 

Paul McCartney (20.03.2019)

Britain at the start of the 1960’s was a rather depressing, grey place. The success of the Beatles transformed British society to the Swinging Sixties and Britain became the music centre of the world. Paul McCartney’s song-writing partnership with John Lennon was the most successful of the post-war era.

The Rise and Fall of Margaret Thatcher (17.04.2019)

The story of the unlikely rise of the grocer’s daughter who became Britain’s most famous Prime Minister, and then her downfall at the hands of her colleagues in government. A betrayal Margaret Thatcher never recovered from.

Queen Elizabeth II (15.05.2019)

Queen Elizabeth, Britain’s longest reigning monarch, came to the throne on the death of her father, George VI, in 1952. She has since met 6 popes, 13 US presidents, and, on a weekly basis, each of 13 British prime-ministers; a tradition started by Winston Churchill. She is acknowledged as ‘the most memorable Bond girl to date.’
