Grimm Lecture

postage stamp featuring the Brothers Grimm
Known primarily today for their fairy tales, the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were university scholars active in the early 19th century, famous for their work in philology and lexicography. They also exhibited a rebellious political streak, refusing to sign a pledge of allegiance to the King of Hannover and losing their university positions as a result. The Waterloo Centre for German Studies has named its annual flagship lecture in honour of these two scholars who did so much to further academic inquiry in a variety of disciplines which today make up much of the German studies repertoire.
