The Linguistics Division, 1984 to TodayDr. Hildegard Farke came to Göttingen as a student of English in 1979, and she left the University to go into teacher's training in 1985, after the Department had moved to its new location. Some years later she returned to the Department to work in the Linguistics division as a member of staff. Her insights are from a student's as well as from a staff member's perspective. In the video below she speaks about what the room situation was like before the move, in how far the move made a difference to the Department as a whole, but also about the kinds of topics Linguistis offered then and now.
The video is in German, but below the video you will find a translated transcript.
