Does Eastern Europe have lessons for Brexit Britain?

What, if anything, can the experience of (research on) Eastern Europe say to us as we head towards Brexit? Lessons may lie above all in getting to grips with the tempo and nature of political change, its (un)predictability and likely channels.

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.

CfP: Colloquium UCL-Institut Français

17 October 2013

The Institut Français in London and University College London are launching a new 3-year cooperation in order to strengthen research links between UCL and colleagues from French universities.


UCL's European Institute is curating the first season under the theme of "In Place(s) of Memory”. The launch event, now scheduled on 11-12 December, is a 1.5-day Colloquium, which comprises a study visit by French academics, a public panel discussion and a reception to launch the new agreement on the first day, followed by a conference with UCL and French scholars on the second day.We are now inviting proposals from UCL academics to bring over a colleague from a French university, with whom they wish to strengthen research links and collaboration, for this Colloquium. Both academics are expected to present their work at the conference day on 12 December. All expenses will be covered. Proposals are invited from staff working on a wide range of topics and methodologies, and could include the legal and diplomatic implications of recent European "memory laws", the politics of heritage sites and conservation, literary or audiovisual negotiations of memory, or historiographies of war, violence and resistance, among many others. Throughout, we encourage constructively critical and theoretically informed discussions on remembrance cultures.

To apply and for more information please email: u.staiger@ucl.ac.uk
Deadline: 25 October 2013.
