For the first session of Trinity, we will have the great honor of receiving Professor Timothy Garton Ash (CMG FRSA).
He will present an article that summarizes and presents European Moments, which is a selective overview of projects, studies, and initiatives that have grappled with the question of a European narrative. It is divided into three parts : “normative projects”, focusing on what a European narrative should be, “descriptive and analytical projects”, focusing on how European narratives can be categorized, and “outreach and interactive projects”, focusing on how European narratives are shaped.
Timothy Garton Ash is the author of ten books of political writing or ‘history of the present’ which have charted the transformation of Europe over the last half-century. He is Professor of European Studies at the University of Oxford, Isaiah Berlin Professorial Fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford, and a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. His essays appear regularly in the New York Review of Books and he writes a column on international affairs in the Guardian which is widely syndicated in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
More information to come.
No debate experience or political background is necessary. We value the diversity of perspectives and opinions.
Free refreshments will be provided at 7 pm, and the session starts at 7:15 promptly.
