First Heinz Bluhm Memorial Lecture is Thursday

(9-26-2000) A new lecture series in European literature established in memory of German Studies Department founder Heinz Bluhm debuts with a talk by Annabel Patterson, the Karl Young Professor of English at Yale University, on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 4:30 p.m. in Devlin 101.

Patterson will present "More and Melanchthon: Faces of Principle in Early Modern Europe." She is the author of several books, including Early Modern Liberalism and Shakespeare and the Popular Voice, and is a former faculty member at Duke University, the University of Maryland and York University in Toronto.

The series commemorates the legacy of Bluhm, who in 1968 founded the Germanic Studies Department - later German Studies - and served as its first chairman. Bluhm, who died in 1993, was known for his project "Index Verborum," a reference guide to the essential words in Martin Luther's writings from 1516 through 1525.
