    January 17, 2020 marks the 200th birthday of Anne Brontë, the youngest of the Brontë siblings. While Anne has received increasing scholarly attention in recent decades, she remains overshadowed by her elder sisters in the popular imagination and is still frequently neglected even in studies of 'the Brontës' as a collective. Her life, though brief and quiet, was intensely productive, and her work has much to offer: unflinching realism, feminist politics, structural inventiveness, and a subtle sense of humour, amongst other qualities. To celebrate this fascinating writer, the IAAK is hosting a two-day symposium on the occasion of her bicentennial. There will be talks by students and lecturers from Bonn as well as international guests. Everyone is welcome to drop in, listen, and discuss Anne Brontë's "works and (after)life"!
