The Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations (CAGCR) was inaugurated on 1 December 2005 by the German Ambassador, Thomas Matussek. The guest of honour for this occasion was Dr Paul Oestreicher, the Dean of Coventry Cathedral and initiator of the Dresden Trust. The CAGCR was established in order to promote the study of cultural transfers and interrelations between Britain and the German speaking world (including Austria and the German speaking parts of Switzerland).

Housed in the Department of German within the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film, the Centre has three main goals:

  • The facilitation of innovative research on Anglo-German cultural relations with special reference to the fields of literature, language, intellectual history and comparative cultural practice, to be published in the Centre's refereed Yearbook, ANGERMION.
  • The provision of high quality postgraduate teaching on Anglo-German cultural relations through an MA programme and through PhD supervision.
  • Outreach to the academic and general public through public lectures, colloquia and conferences on important Anglo-German themes and questions with a significant Anglo-German dimension.
