Rosie receives the Otto Harpner Award

Rosie MacLeod, a Ph.D. Student in Bangor’s School of Modern Languages, has just received an OTTO HARPNER AWARD, administered by the Anglo-Austrian Society. Rosie is undertaking research under the supervision of Professor Anthony Bushell into the poetry of Gerhard Fritsch, of the leading figures in Austrian literature immediately after the Second World War. The award, in the form of a travel grant, will enable Rosie to work at the Wienbibliothek in Vienna’s imposing Town Hall, where many of Fritsch’s original manuscripts are housed.
