9781845193867: Taking Up the Torch: English Institutions, German Dialectics, and Multicultural Commitments

This is an unusual narrative in that it successfully combines subjectivity -- how an English person was led by a sequence of educational developments, personal encounters and historical constraints to become the founder of the German-Jewish Centre at the University of Sussex; and objectivity -- a book that introduces English and American readers to an important and evolving field of historical and cultural studies through intellectual autobiography. It documents the formative experiences of a scholar who was to become a pioneering teacher and researcher in the field of German culture and politics. The aim is to relate the shaping of self to the drift of history in a period of radical social change, extending from the refugee crisis caused by Hitler's seizure of power through the ordeals of the Second World War to post-war reconstruction, and the transformation of Britain into a modern multicultural society. The focus is on the formative role of institutions: vicarage childhood, Anglican schooling, Cambridge and other university environments -- especially the new map of learning at Sussex University in the 1960s. The 'Torch' in the title alludes to the transmission of a radical intellectual tradition and to a specific commitment to the study of Die Fackel, the satirical journal edited by Karl Kraus in Vienna from 1899 to 1936. From this emerged the innovative agenda developed by the Centre for German-Jewish Studies.

About the Author:

Edward Timms was made an officer of the Order of the British Empire for services to scholarship and in 2008 he was awarded the Austrian Cross of Honour for Arts and Sciences.

Review:

“A fascinating intellectual odyssey, showing how Timms came to fall under the spell of German literature and culture, and how as a graduate student he decided to research the challenging figure of Karl Kraus.”  —Anthony Grenville, Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies
