Description

‘Things Fall Apart’ - But Can the Centre Hold?

Peripherality and Centrality in Ireland and Europe.

In the first of the Autumn Lecture Series, Stephen Green will discuss "The European Identity - Historical and Cultural Realities We Cannot Deny."

What--if anything--do the member states of the European Union have in common? Amidst all the variety, can one even speak of a European identity? Stephen Green will explore these questions and argue for the necessity of the European voice in the international community.

The event is in conjunction with the Kemmy Business School, Limerick Institute of Technology, Limerick City and County Council and The Irish Examiner. It is a six-part series of public lectures to be delivered by internationally renowned commentators and thought-leaders in their field.The opening lecture with Stephen Green will take place on the 14th of September and will be followed by a series of lectures over the following Thursday evenings.
