Presented by Dr Lars Klein - Senior lecturer at the Erasmus Mundus Master Programme “Euroculture - Europe in the Wider World", and co-hosted by Monash and RMIT European and EU Centres.
What does it mean to be European? Is there such a thing as a distinct European identity?
These questions have perplexed academics and politicians alike, particularly in the context of political legitimacy for European Union institutions. Answers have proven difficult to find. So why not leave it open?
Dr Lars Klein will argue for the possibility of a transcultural citizenship that supports hybridity and at the same time fosters a feeling of Europeanness.
Dr Lars Klein has been with the Euroculture Programme at the University of Göttingen since 2008. He studied North American Studies and Philosophy at the Freie Universität Berlin and the University of Basel. He holds a PhD in Modern and Contemporary History from the Georg-August-University in Göttingen.
Previously he worked on a project funded by the German Foundation for Peace Research and has been a visiting scholar at Georgetown University, Indiana University and the University of Pune. His main research interests are European identity, transatlantic relations, war and war reporting in the 20th century.
