Does Eastern Europe have lessons for Brexit Britain

In the aftermath of the EU referendum a number of Central and South East Europeanists wrote blogs reflecting on possible parallels between Brexit and break-ups of multinational socialist states like Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia in early 1990s.

Hollande's response to the Nice massacre will please only the far right

On Thursday night, for the third time since January 2015, President François Hollande was faced with a mass murder on French soil. An ashen-faced Hollande, almost looking like a broken man, appeared on television on Friday at 4am and declared: “This is undoubtedly a terrorist attack; the whole of France is under the threat of an Islamic terrorist attack”.

Roman oratory and the EU referendum campaigns

In addition to marking a politically decisive moment in British history, the campaigns in advance of the referendum on the UK’s membership in the EU were exciting objects of study for Classicists in terms of the political use of oratory.

UCL Graduate School & DAAD Masterclass on European Law, Modern History and Public Policy

Graduate School Masterclasses are a  programme of talks and workshops designed specifically for early-career researchers to hear from, interact with and be inspired by experienced academic researchers. This upcoming workshop is organised in collaboration with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation.

The masterclass will feature Christian Joerges, Professor of Law and Society at the Hertie School of Governance, and Mary Fulbrook, Professor of German History at UCL.

PROGRAMME:

09:45 – Tea & Coffee
10:00 – Introduction, Prof Albert Weale (UCL SPP)
10:15 – Presentation from Prof Christian Joerges
10:45 - Presentation from Prof Mary Fulbrook
11:15 – Questions & Answers
12:00 – Lunch
13:00 – End

The speakers have been invited to talk about their current research and the business of research in general, their views on how ideas are generated and research projects realised. The sessions also seek to present speakers' views and experiences of their time in academia, their ways of working and their interesting careers. Open to a restricted number of participants, sessions are conceived as being interactive, with a presentation from the speaker and plenty of time for the audience to ask questions. Each speaker will give their unique perspective on these issues, and although the talks will focus on a particular discipline, the chance to listen to and talk to a senior member of the global research community should appeal more widely to researchers considering a future in international research.
