This installment of Conversations on Europe is in collaboration with the Jean Monnet in the USA Network #JMintheUS
For the 2021-22 academic year, the European Studies Center has announced its annual programmatic theme: “Recovering Europe.” Many of this year’s virtual roundtables will speak to this theme. In the Fall semester, sessions will explore economic and public health issues related to Europe’s recovery from the pandemic. In the Spring semester, sessions will consider different, and often uneven, attempts to reckon with and recover from the enduring legacies of European colonialism. The series will be bookended by sessions devoted to important elections impacting Europe.
On the eve of the German Federal Elections, our panel of experts will weigh in on the various issues concerning German voters, the legacy of outgoing Chancellor Merkel, the potential impact of this election on the EU and Germany’s relationship with the U.S., and the significance of the Green Party mounting their first ever candidate for the Chancellorship.
Audience participation is encouraged.
