Ústav světových dějin FF UK vás zve na přednášku profesora Brendana Simmse z University of Cambridge
„Britain and Europe. The clash of two ordering systems then and now“
Přednáška proběhne v pondělí 27. března 2023 od 11. hodin v místnosti 301 v hlavní budově FF UK.
This lecture will show how for hundreds of years, England and the United Kingdom was an ordering force in Europe. After 1973, when the UK joined the EEC, it became a co-ordering power on the continent. The Brexit vote in 2016 therefore threw up the question: what would the UK“s role in the rest of Europe now be, might it even be dominated by the EU? The events of the past few years have given different answers to these questions, which the cture will illuminate from both the historical and contemporary angles.
