On Saturday, 22nd October, 1988, WiGS had its inaugural meeting at the University of Reading. Organised by founder of WiGS, Professor Helen Watanabe, the meeting was attended by an astonishing 60 Germanists. One of the delegates at that first meeting was Dr Winifred Davies, now Reader in German at Aberystwyth University. If you follow the link below, you can read the article that emerged out of Winifred’s paper.
Keep your eyes peeled for more celebratory posts!
