We are a German-English family of 4: two University Professors (LSE, Warwick in the UK) specializing in political philosophy and philosophy of art respectively. Katrin is German; Diarmuid is English. We are spending 2012/13 academic year at the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften of the Goethe Universität Frankfurt. We have two sons, Joschka and Ezra, aged 13 and 9 in German schools for the year. During our year in Germany we will be traveling to various cities (etc) for short breaks. We are non-smokers. We will respect your home and leave it as we found it. We have rented out our home for the year, and done several home swaps in the past, so fully understand the importance of being able to trust the people you rent your home to.
