"A bad day for Europe"?

Juncker’s nomination was not a sudden, not an unexpected and not even a distinct event. Neither does it spell an end to the European Council’s dominance in constitutional politics or make EU reform less likely.

When anger masks apathy

As a closer look at the European Parliament Elections in Central and Eastern Europe suggests, it may be non-voting, rather than populist protest voting, which could prove the real long-term threat to sustainability of the EU’s troubled democratic institutions.

The Eighth European Parliament: More Politicisation

Despite “shocks” & “earthquakes” that took place at the national level, the European Parliament remains mainly pro-EU. Why did the rise of Eurosceptics not make more of an impact, and what do the results mean for the 8th European Parliament?

Mary Fulbrook is Professor of German History at UCL. She studied at Newnham College, Cambridge, as an undergraduate, and at Harvard University, where she did her MA and PhD; she has also held a Harvard Center for European Studies Krupp Fellowship at the LSE, and a Lady Margaret Research Fellowship at New Hall (now Murray Edwards College), Cambridge.

She is currently directing an AHRC collaborative project (2010-2015) on 'Reverberations of War in Germany and Europe since 1945'. her own strand of this project deals with legacies of the Holocaust among perpetrators as well as victims, and with questions of inter-generational transmission.

Mary Fulbrook's research interests have ranged across a variety of fields, including religion and society in early modern Europe, the German dictatorships of the twentieth century, Europe after the Holocaust, and historiography and social theory. She has directed an AHRC-sponsored collaborative research project on 'The "Normalisation of Rule'? State and Society in the GDR, 1961-1979' (2002-06), and held a three year Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship (2006-09) for a book on 'Dissonant Lives: Generations and Violence through the German Dictatorships'.

Mary Fulbrook's teaching ranges from introductory courses on German history from medieval times to the present, through to more specialized source-led teaching on the German Democratic Republic (GDR) and MA courses on 'Theoretical Issues in History and Literature', and 'The Making of Modern Europe'. She supervises a number of PhD students and runs regular graduate student seminars and workshops.

Among other professional commitments, Mary Fulbrook is currently Chair of the Modern History Section of the British Academy. She was the (first female) Chair of the German History Society, and was joint founding Editor of its journal, German History. She currently serves on the Editorial Boards of German Politics and Society, and of Zeithistorische Forschungen; she has been a member of the Advisory Board (Beirat) of the German Historical Institute London; a member of the Academic Advisory Board (wissenschaftliches Kuratorium) of the Memorial Foundation for the former concentration camps of Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora; and a member of the International Advisory Board of the Bundeskanzler-Willy-Brandt-Stiftung.
