Brexit: Its Consequences for Other Member States
Start: Jun 2, 2016 12:00:00 AM
What are the likely effects of Brexit on politics within other member states? Would Brexit change remaining member states’ relationships with the EU? Would it affect decision-making within member states? We will explore how these issues might play out in a diverse range of member states, including Ireland – the UK’s closest neighbour –, long-standing member states such as Germany and the Netherlands, and newer members such as Poland and Romania.

The Impact of WWII on European Society and Culture
Start: Jun 23, 2016 12:00:00 AM
The genocidal Second World War in Europe is notable for the distinction – made in radically varying ways by different people – between what was perceived as ‘legitimate’ violence, and what went ‘beyond’ the kinds of violence that might be expected during wartime. This international and interdisciplinary conference addresses questions of individual responsibility within collective violence, and how to think and write about past events and one's own role in it.
Conceptions of Freedom I: Psychoanalysis
Start: Jun 28, 2016 12:00:00 AM
In this opening discussion of a series on Conceptions of Freedom, Adam Phillips, renowned writer, psychotherapist and exponent of psychoanalytic ideas, will reflect on what psychoanalysis has to tell us about the subjective experience of freedom, the development of personal agency, and the relationship between psychic structure and flexibility. Phillips, who has been called “one of the finest prose stylists at work in the language” for his numerous books on psychoanalysis and literature, will be in conversation with Josh Cohen, author of “The Private Life,” as well as a psychoanalyst and literary theorist.
