Professor Brophy in Germany

James Brophy

On October 22-23, 2009, James Brophy attended an international conference on censorship at the Heinrich-Heine-Institute in Düsseldorf, Germany, where he presented a lecture on the radical publisher Heinrich Hoff and his strategies for undermining censorship in the period 1830-1848.   His lecture was part of a two-day symposium that explored the relationship between censorship, self-censorship, and literary production in nineteenth-century Germany and Austria.  The image on the screen shows the German-Jewish author-poet Heinrich Heine, an exiled democrat whose works were heavily censored.
