The heart of the matter: passion, politics and the EU referendum

Both Leave and Remain have appealed to voters’ guts to the extent that reason itself has become suspicious. Emotions will rule the day on 23 June, but at what cost?

The price of solidarity: is Brexit worth it?

A misunderstanding of history and of historical time has put European solidarity on the chopping block. Think carefully before allowing the axe to swing, pleads Jan Kubik, Director of the School of Slavonic & East European Studies at UCL.

eMigrating Landscapes

Debate on contemporary Europeans, new ideas about borders and “New Europeans?” Grażyna Plebanek and AM Bakalar

A meeting with the authors hosted by Urszula Chowaniec. The discussion and commentary by Tim Beasley-Murray and Agata Pyzik.

Since the post-communist transformations of the late 1980s and the 1990s in Eastern and Central Europe and the ensuing EU enlargement of 2004, migration has become a significant trait within contemporary Europe and an increasingly important factor in social conflict affecting various parts of the continent. Contemporary migration and/or emigration has brought a new political rhetoric, resulting in social turmoil as well as new cultural, literary and artistic production. In our seminar series in 2013, these problems will be scrutinized based on the discussion on particular literary and cultural events within Polish culture.
