Congratulations to SOCLAS postgraduate student Paul O’Hanrahan, who will shortly be heading off to Berlin to conduct research after winning a competitive grant from the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).

Paul’s doctoral research investigates the representation of Berlin in English-language texts since the fall of the Berlin Wall. He will spend 3 months in Berlin, where he will be hosted by the Freie Universität and will work with Prof Russell West-Pavlov. Watch this space for a report from Paul on his return!
