Dr Éva Antal in Glasow and Nancy

Dr. habil. Eva Antal, the professor of the Institute of English and American Studies was invited as a guest professor and lecturer by the IDEA research Centre at the University of Lorraine (Nancy-Metz, France) in January and February 2020 (
Our colleague had seminars to English Studies MA students about Mary Wollstonecraft's Rousseauean reading and had talks with the scholars of IDEA, discussing her research and planned monograph on the English female writer's philosophical-educational and literary works. At the research centre, another presentation dealt with the interdisciplinary framework titled "Mary Wollstonecraft's Lifework: Feminism, Intertextuality and Interdisciplinarity". The doctoral students at the Lorraine also asked our colleague to speak about the questions of theoretical background of academic research. Eva Antal also shared her recent experience about the practicalities of Hungarian doctoral programmes as last autumn she undertook to be a fellow-supervisor of an interdisciplinary doctoral thesis at ELTE. On 31st January, the IDEA organised a one-day workshop on William Blake's literary illustrations with the main focus on the sublime; and they invited Hélène Ibata, a French scholar at Strasbourg University, being specialised in the field.
In addition to the seminars and talks, our colleague had the opportunities to plan future cooperation; for instance, ERASMUS staff and student exchange. With Antonella Braida, due to their similar research interests, they together are preparing a proposal of an edited volume on female writers (novelists, poets, journalists, translators) who presented the possibilities of woman's development in the decades from 1770s to 1830s.
The one-month stay in France concluded Eva Antal's sabbatical. Beforehand, in autumn 2019, she spent two months at the University of Glasgow. In Scotland, mainly working on her academic monograph, she also joined the activities of the Centre for Gender History at the University and had one research seminar.

The two research visits were supported by the grant EFOP-3.6.1-16-2016-00001 "Complex improvement of research capacities and services at Eszterházy Károly University".
