WHAT STORY SHOULD EUROPE TELL?
Public Lecture by Timothy Garton Ash
(Fully booked. A recording will be available after the event, on our website and social media channels.)
Faced with Brexit, populism and anti-liberalism spreading to the heart of Europe, an expansive China, and the raw challenges of Putin and Trump, what is the new narrative that can both unite and mobilise today's Europeans? Does it exist? If it does, who should tell this story? Is such a narrative compatible with the ineradicable complexity of European history, and the historian's professional duty to be a myth-buster, not a myth-maker? Timothy Garton Ash, Professor of European Studies at Oxford University, winner of the 2017 Charlemagne Prize, and a self-proclaimed 'English European', will explore these questions at the House of European History on Tuesday 13th November 2018 at 18.00.
Language: English, with interpretation in French
