In 2006, Leipzig University, in co-operation with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Veranstaltungsforum of the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, initiated the Picador Guest Professorship for Literature at the Institute for American Studies, aiming at conveying and reflecting on the diversity of Anglo-American literature.
