UPDATE: Picador Chair in the Summer Term 2020

We are sorry to announce that due to the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the Picador Chair will have to remain empty for the summer term of 2020. After a lot of careful thought, we decided that this is the most sensible choice in the light of the still unfolding events. While this means that no creative writing workshop will be offered this semester, we will be able to offer LC-III and the Lehramt module “US Popular Culture and American Literature” (-1701), albeit in a slightly different form than usual.
