Research Colloquium

German Repentance and European Reconciliation: Methodological Issues and Preliminary Findings

Mr. Martin Chung
PhD. Candidate (European Studies) HKU

Date: May 3, 2010 (Monday)
Time: 16:00 to 18:00
Venue: KK Leung Room 531A

Abstract
The general historiography of postwar Europe has been dominated by the thematic foci of the Cold War, decolonization and European integration, to the detriment that European reconciliation - as the restoration of people-to-people (vis-a-vis state-to-state) relationships, at the very least - and where the German "turning around" (not only economically and politically, but also morally and spiritually) figures in this healing process, that is, issues that are of paramount significance to students of Europe from post-conflict regions, have been either largely relegated to the sideline or simply taken for granted. The research student (now one year into his 4-year PhD programme) will in this talk introduce his previous and current research related to this research topic, elaborate on some of the methodological concerns and problems, as well as present a few preliminary findings.
