I am a graduate of the University of Liverpool and have been a member of staff in the Department of Germanic Studies at Sheffield since 1971. My research is mainly in the area of the language and society of Luxembourg, although I have also published on regional and historical varieties of German and the history and culture of the Netherlands. Recently, too, I have written on German immigration to Great Britain, and am currently researching the early history of radio broadcasting from Luxembourg.
I am Director of the University of Sheffield Centre for Luxembourg Studies (1995), and a Commander in the National Order of Merit of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (1999).
