Chaucer in Denmark

I recently accepted an invitation by the Department of Identity and Culture at Roskilde University, Denmark, to serve as external reader for Professor Ebbe Klitgaard's postdoctoral thesis, "Chaucer in Denmark: A Study of the Translation and Reception History 1782-2012." Later this year, I will travel to Denmark to participate in the public defense for this dissertation. This formal process corresponds to the German *Habilitation* and is usually a prerequisite for full professorship in the Danish academic system.
