Department of English and American Studies

Welcome to the Department of English and American Studies!

We hope we will be able to return to the standard mode next semester. However, the upcoming state exams and theses defences will still take place online as planned.

The online IDEAS Students’ Conference on May 22, 2021 was a great success, many thanks to ESC/APE and all organizers. Also, have a look at the previous years of IDEAS!

The photo above is a token of our history: it comes from the 50th Anniversary of The Gypsywood Players, the theatre company of the Department. The picture is five years old, so the company is 55 this year, but there will be no re-union — and this year’s performance is also suspended.
Pending is an even more important anniversary – 100 years of the Department itself. Our first professor was appointed in 1920, regular teaching started in 2021. We are going to celebrate this Autumn!
