Gilbert Carr on Karl Kraus
Wednesday, 22 May 2019, 5 – 7:30pm
The launch of a new monograph by Dr Gilbert Carr (TCD) organised by the Department of Germanic Studies.
Dr Carr's research explores the early writings of the prominent Austrian 'Literaturpapst', Karl Kraus (1874-1936) and his legendary critical periodical Die Fackel (1899-1936). Analysing new materials and soruces, this is a major contribution both to the study of Kraus as well as the literature and culture of Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century.
Dr Carr is a Fellow Emeritus at Trinity College Dublin. He was a Senior Lecturer in German from 1984 to 2008, and was elected a Fellow in 1999. From 1996 to 1999 he was Director of European Studies, and from 2006 to 2008 was Head of the Department of Germanic Studies.
Dr Clemens Ruthner (TCD) will host an in conversation with Dr Carr. This will be followed by a reception in the Ideas Space.
