Chistopher Young (Cambridge University) will present the next Noon Colloquium.

Christopher Young’s teaching and research focuses on medieval German literature with additional interests in the history of the German language and the sociology of sport. He is the author of “Narrativische Perspektiven in Worlframs Willehalm” and the co-editor of “Blutezeit” (both Tubingen 2000). In 2000-2001 he was awarded a fellowship by the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung and spent a year researching at the University of Cologne. His work there – an edition, translation and commentary of Ulrich von Liechtenstein’s Frauenbuch – will be published by Reclam.

He is currently completing a co-authored “History of the German Language through Texts” (Routledge), preparing a special edition of “American Behavioural Scientist” (with Andrei Markovits) on “Sports and Cultural Space”, and beginning a new project on German national identity at the Munich Olympics 1972.
