Join this panel discussion with European students from UCL to consider questions around European identity after Brexit.
How has Brexit impacted our perception of Europeanness? How are the stereotypical portrayals of the European experience in the UK’s mainstream media impacting our lives? To what extent are stereotypes promulgated about European traditions, religions, cultural and gender specificities and family values shaping (or distorting) our identity? Can popular culture or art help in the creation of a shared European future? These are the questions to which we will be searching for answers with our audience and panel of European university students from UCL.
This panel discussion will set the context for Margot Przymierska’s play ‘Wesele / Wedding’, a contemporary take on the defining Polish drama of the 20th century by Stanisław Wyspiański, inspired by Margot’s own experience of being a female wedding emcee in the UK (separate booking required).
Moderator: Dénes András Nagy, BA History, Politics and Economics at the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies.
