Research projects

As the owner of an apprenticeship position, my lecturing and publishing activities must come to a standstill or be allowed to go into private life in favour of efforts to cover as broad a spectrum of teaching as possible. Nevertheless, it may be possible to pursue projects that have already begun, such as the continuation of the Walther-von-der-Vogelweide-Bibliographie or the one on church criticism in Middle High German poetry.
