Talk: Perceptions of Europe since world war II
 
 
Date: 9 December 2008 
 

The European Studies Programme and the School of Modern Languages and Cultures of the University of Hong Kong have the pleasure of inviting you to a talk by:

Professor Dr. Wolf Gruner
University of Rostock, Germany

entitled

PERCEPTIONS OF EUROPE SINCE WORLD WAR II

Date: December 9, 2008 (Tuesday)
Time: 2pm to 3pm
Venue: Room KK1105, KK Leung Building, The University of Hong Kong

Since the Second World War, Europe has undergone many major transitions which have affected its role in the world. If, in 1939 (as in 1914), it was the vortex within which the rest of the world was dragged into war, by the end of the century, Europe had remodelled itself as an epicentre of peace and soft power. In his talk, Professor Dr. Gruner, one of the leading analysts of contemporary Europe and the author of dozens of articles, essays, and books on Europe and Germany, will be discussing the major shifts in perception of Europe that have taken place since the end of the Second World War.
