The Realm of Dreams: Impressions from a Journey through its Cultural and Literary History’. After a short introduction to cultural dream-work, Professor Engel will sketch interpretations of dreams from different literatures and periods, crossing genres into art and film, ‘starting probably in the Ancient Near East and, hopefully, landing somewhere in the present’. Professor Engel is co-director of a research committee of the International Comparative Literature Association, ‘Dream Cultures: the Cultural and Literary History of the Dream’. The committee has a global membership that includes our colleague Ricarda Schmidt. Professor Engel is also Associate Director of the Oxford Kafka Research Centre.
