GPP Coffee Break

Ben Schofield
Tuesday April 27

Join Georgian Papers Programme scholar Angel-Luke O’Donnell for an online version of the popular GPP Coffee Break series at King’s College London.

Join us on April 27, 2021, at 3:30 pm GST (10:30 am EST) for a presentation by Ben Schofield (King’s College London) as he outlines the research he is planning to undertake as part of the Georgian Papers Programme Mount Vernon Fellowship. His wider project aims to explore German-American cultural relations from the 18th Century to the present, with George Washington one of several cases studies. His talk will briefly outline some of the areas he hopes to explore around Washington, and the wider life of the Mount Vernon estate, and how these might illuminate transnational attitudes towards ‘Germanness’ and German-American relations.

Ben Schofield is Reader in German and Co-Director of the Centre for Modern Literature & Culture at King’s College London. His research focuses on Transnational Studies and Comparative Cultural Studies, with core concerns in German and American Studies, and 19th Century Studies, especially the history of Revolution and nation-formation.

About the series

The Georgian Papers Programme (GPP) coffee breaks are an informal opportunity for researchers throughout the world to gather together virtually to discuss ongoing projects. Each session will have a short presentation from a GPP researcher and then we will open discussion out for questions about the project, suggestions for related material, or general conversation about the archives and research. The presenters in these events will often be in the early stages of their project and the coffee breaks aim to facilitate the exchange of knowledge about both the materials in Windsor as well as other repositories throughout the world.

We will limit the size of these events to 40 participants in order to encourage discussion among and between us. No recordings are made of the discussions and no tweeting or posting on other social media platforms during the event is permitted in order to create a trusted working environment for developing projects.
