Germanic Archives

Archive material has been deposited with the Institute of Germanic Studies (today, The Institute of Modern Languages Research) since its foundation in 1950, by many individuals and organisations.

There are a number of discrete collections which give a unique overview of the history and development of Germanic studies in the UK from the 19th century onwards. The invaluable primary sources they contain provide a rich resource for the study of subjects as diverse as language and literature, theatre history, exile studies and political satire.
