2022 marks the centenary of two major modernist texts: James Joyce's Ulysses and T.S.Eliot's The Waste Land. To celebrate this, the two literature divisions at the SEP host an event with live readings, reminiscences, an open mic and an exhibition: Nov 30, 2022, from 6pm, in the SEP library and Medienraum.


The English department is delighted to announce that Avrina Jos Joslin Thambi received the „Niedersächsische Wissenschaftspreis“ in the category best students. We congratulate Avrina warmly on this impressive achievement and well-deserved success!

We express our heartfelt congratulations to our former colleague Ralf Haekel on his new appointment as a W3 professor of English Literature at Leipzig University and wish him lots of success and happiness!
