2019: Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe
In 2019, we are going further back in time and are celebrating the 300th birthday of Daniel Defoe's iconic Robinson Crusoe, whose eponymous castaway hero spends 28 years on a remote island before being resuced. Robinson's suffering of isolation and his encounter with cannibals makes for an interesting Halloween read.
Like last year, we are going to have a reading of several passages from Robinson Crusoe (in English) and a introduction to and discussion of the book (in German and English). The event will be open to the public. Click here for further information.
The even will be organised together with the Chair of English and American Cultural Studies.
