Professor Phyllis Lassner awarded Diamond Jubilee International Visiting Fellowship

Published: 28 March 2014

Professor Phyllis Lassner was awarded a Diamond Jubilee International Visiting Fellowship for a three-year research collaboration with the English department.

She will be working closely with Clare Hanson, James Jordan, and Will May during her fellowship, which includes a series of seminars for postgraduate students, a public lecture, and symposia at Southampton and Northwestern university.

Her project, 'Espionage and Exile', explores the British response to World War II and the Holocaust through careful analysis of spy fiction and film from 1936 to the Cold War. Professor Lassner is based at the Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University, and is looking forward to working closely with the Parkes Institute during her time here.
