A Question of Trust

The age-old question of what holds our societies together re-emerges periodically, particularly in times of crisis. In a world ever more globalised and virtual, the answer is often cast in terms of "trust", with its pivotal role as regularly called upon as its health called into question. How has trust risen to this centrality, and is it all as straightforward as it seems?

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.

This interdisciplinary and international conference will provide the forum for a long-overdue reappraisal of the Georgics and its contribution to the history of European art, thought, and literature. A diverse range of speakers from three continents will gather to offer new perspectives on this rich and enigmatic poem.
