About the Society

The International Elizabeth von Arnim Society was founded on September 13, 2015, at the first Elizabeth von Arnim conference, which was held at Lucy Cavendish College in Cambridge, England. The society is dedicated to fostering scholarly work on von Arnim and helping scholars from around the world come together and exchange ideas.

  1. Congratulations on the formation of the Society. I suppose I became interested in Elizabeth as a follow up to my interest in German Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich, especially his painting “Chalk Cliffs on Rugen”. I noted her work on Adventures in Rugen and have recently read it. Now I have gone on to other works of hers, Elizabeth and Her German Garden and Enchanted April. I was interested in the information on your website about Nassenheide and pleased to read about the celebrations at Buk and the statue there. I wondered if Jennifer Walker’s work has been produced in book form.

    1. Good to hear from you. Jennifer’s biographer has been published and is now available on kindle if you’d like to follow up.

      Best wishes,
      Isobel

  2. From Trudi Tate, Literature Cambridge:

    Summer course in Cambridge, 8-13 July 2018, on Women Writers: Emily Bronte to Elizabeth Bowen. A week’s immersion in five great women writers of the 19th and early 20th centuries: Emily Bronte, George Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield and Elizabeth Bowen.

    Taught by leading scholars, most from Cambridge: Gillian Beer, Alison Hennegan, Clare Walker Gore, plus Claire Davison from the Sorbonne on Katherine Mansfield. A unique chance to live and study in a Cambridge college, with lectures, supervisions (tutorials), walks, excursions, talks.
