British and Irish culture: SAUTE’s 75th anniversary

On the 13th May 2022, we celebrated British and Irish culture in Basel to honour SAUTE’s 75th anniversary. Prof. Dr. Michelle Witen gave an illuminating talk on James Joyce’s Ulysses to mark the centenary of its publication. This was followed by short presentations on the illustrious guests of renowned hotel Les Trois Rois, British and Irish life in Basel (past and present), and English as a lingua franca.  

The event was blessed with nice weather and so we spent the rest of the evening under the lime tree in our beautiful courtyard, ceilidh dancing and enjoying the sounds of pipes, Bluejay’s celtic folk-pop, and Andrew Shields’ band “The Literati”.
