Congratulation to Dr Anna Linton, Senior Lecturer in German, who has been awarded a Mid-Career Fellowship by the British Academy for her project on German Writers in Britain.
This timely project takes the long view on European migration to Britain, investigating the contributions made by German speakers to the literary and intellectual life of Stuart Britain, a period of relative tolerance and diversity which saw many political and economic migrants settling in England and Scotland.
This year the British Academy has appointed 47 new Mid-Career Fellows, whose research areas span the humanities and social sciences.
Mid-Career Fellowships allow academics to focus on a major piece of research and to communicate their work to a wider audience, by obtaining time away from teaching and administration commitments.
The new Mid-Career Fellows are recognised as excellent communicators and ‘champions’ in their field, as well as for their distinguished publication record.
