Dr Anne Simon appointed to Fixed-Term Lectureship in German at the Institute

Tuesday 26 June 2012

The Institute is delighted to announce that Dr Anne Simon, formerly of Bristol University, has been appointed to the fixed-term Lectureship in German, replacing Dr Godela Weiss-Sussex who will be on research leave in 2012-2013. Dr Simon will take up her post on 10 September 2012.

Dr Simon’s main research interests lie in the literature, art and culture of the Middle Ages and Early Modern period; and the impact of these periods on subsequent eras, up to and including the present. She is working on two projects: an edition of the letters of the 16th-century nun Katerina Lemmel; and a study of Nuremberg’s construction of a 'brand image' in the Middle Ages and its subsequent exploitation by the city itself and by others, including the National Socialists.
