Theresa May's long-awaited Brexit speech must be understood as an aspiration, rather than a roadmap, since its realisation requires the consent of other parties and the removal of important contradictions, argues Benjamin Martill.

Lost worlds of East European Jewry: images and narratives
Part of the 2013-14 series In Place(s) of Memory, which the UCL European Institute is organising with the Institut Français in London, this joint lecture features contributions from Prof Michael Berkowitz (UCL Hebrew & Jewish) and Prof Delphine Bechtel (Université Paris IV Sorbonne).
Professor Delphine Bechtel: (UFR d’Etudes Germaniques, Paris IV Sorbonne)
Competing memories of multicultural Jewish Lemberg: narratives and traces Lemberg, Lwow, Lvov, Lviv has been home for centuries to Poles, Jews and Ukrainians. After the Holocaust and the expulsion of Poles following World War 2, the city has become predominantly Ukrainian and is today the centre of the Ukrainian nationalist movement. Competing narratives about the past of this former multicultural city are clashing today with remnants and traces of the past, as Jews, Poles and Ukrainians are vindicating the city as their own.

European Jews and photography: Autobiography, evasion, integrity
This presentation concentrates on the rich autobiographical work of I. J. Singer (interwar Warsaw) and Bernard Gotfryd (Radom ghetto) pertaining to their vocations in photography, also drawing on fictional and autobiographical writings of Hans Keilson, Giselle Freund, Lotte Jacobi, Alfred Stieglitz, and H. W. Barnett. It comprises an initial attempt to integrate reflections that were specific to Jewish photographers in certain periods and cities, as well as to sketch an overall sense of the Jewish engagement with photography, which is only beginning to emerge as a scholarly subject.
