What do we think?
A series of ten fascinating hour-long, expert-led lectures, charting continental culture and the road to Europe through key historical themes and thought-provoking questions. Kicking off with Dr Simon Usherwood’s ‘Britain and the EU: Heading to a Better Place?‘ on 12 September, and delving into Professor William Doyle’s ‘The Eclipse of Aristocracy‘ on 17 October, the series will be rounded off by Professor A.C. Grayling, discussing ‘The European Idea: History, Culture and Place‘ on 12 December. The future of Europe, surely, lies in part in understanding its complex and convoluted past. Pick and choose one or two highlights, or make this Tuesday morning series a staple of your winter week – followed, of course, by an amble through the Gallery’s striking collection.
What do they say?
“Throughout this series we examine facets of European development, social and political unrest and the remapping of a continent. Over the past 200 years Europe has been fraught with war, disease and struggle but from the darkness came cultural progression and political innovation that have changed art, politics and the world.”
