John L. Flood

Friday 12 November 2021

The Institute announces with much sadness that Professor John L. Flood, Honorary Fellow of the IMLR, passed away early on 4 November 2021.   

Professor Flood, an internationally renowned and respected scholar of the medieval and Early Modern periods, was Deputy Director of the Institute of Germanic Studies, London, from 1979 to 2002, and served for many years as Honorary Secretary of the CUTG (now AGS).  In his role as Deputy Director he did much to forge cultural links not only with West Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but also with the former GDR.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
