Emil/Emilie: Duke August of Saxe-Gotha - Man of Letters, Art Connoisseur and Transgender Provocateur
Lecture hall in the Landschaftshaus, Schlossberg 2
Concept and direction: Prof. Dr. Martin Mulsow (Gotha Research Centre)

Duke August of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg (1772-1822) was an unusual prince. The conference will focus on the fluidity of his gender identity, his peculiarities of taste and his unpublished literary activities in a comprehensive reassessment. It will draw, among other things, on the Duke's estate preserved in the Gotha Research Library.

Please note: The lecture is given in German.
