About the Association
The German Association for the Study of British Cultures aims to promote academic activity in the field of British and other English-speaking cultures. The Association’s main concern is to bring a scholarly cultural dimension to the subject matter and perspectives of English Studies at German universities and schools; and to give this dimension more conceptual depth, thematic differentiation, and institutional recognition. Its activities include organising conferences and workshops as well as reserving a small fund for the sponsorship of events.
