Guest Professor at the Institute of English and American Studies

On 8th and 9th December 2020, the Institute of English and American Studies welcomed Antonella Braida Laplace from University of Lorraine, Nancy-Metz, France in the format of online teaching.
Professor Braida is a lecturer in English and a member of the research center IDEA (Nancy-Metz). After completing her PhD at St Catherine's College, Oxford, she published two volumes on the reception of Dante. She was a lecturer at the University of Durham till 2005, when she moved to France. Her research concerns Anglo-Italian relations and women writers and in 2020 she has published the edited volume Mary Shelley and Europe (Oxford: Legenda, MHRA;
In Eger, in her online Zoom classes, Professor Braida gave a lecture on Mary Shelley's writing the Gothic and the sublime and she had a seminar discussion on the roles of men, women and Nature in Frankenstein. In the two classes, the third-year BA students of English studies and the third-year MA students of teacher training had the opportunity to ask questions and get involved in the "close reading" of some passages of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Both lectures and seminars were well accepted and the students took active parts in the lively discussion. The two Zoom sessions were hosted by Eszter Krakkó and Dr. Krisztina Kaló, while the event was organized by Dr. Eva Antal, Professor Braida's associate fellow-researcher at IDEA. Antonella Braida is planning to hold two more classes at the Institute in spring 2021 on the "Frankenstein myth" – hopefully, not via Zoom, but personally, visiting us in Eger through ERASMUS Mobility Programme.
