EUROPE: THE HISTORY OF AN IDEA

Tuesday 15 October: 6:00pm - 7:00pm

St John's College Old Divinity School, All Saints Passage, CB2 1TP

The 2016 referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union triggered a passionate debate about the advantages and disadvantages of EU membership. However, in that debate, the distinction between the European Union and Europe more generally was blurred. What exactly do we mean when we refer to ‘Europe’?

Shane Weller, Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Kent, believes the long history of the idea of Europe can provide some fascinating answers to that question. He will argue that, as we attempt to imagine possible futures for Europe, we have much to learn from the past.
