Lørdagsuniversitetet er et tilbud om populærvitenskapelige foredrag av forskere ved Universitetet i Agder. Foredragene blir holdt med utgangspunkt i egen forskning og/eller egne erfaringer med utdanning og forskning. Vi lover varierte tema og hørverdige foredragsholdere. Aktuelle tema blir presentert og diskutert i en uformell setting.
v/ Dr. Justus Schönlau
Presenting the House of European History Museum in Brussels which opened in 2017, the talk will explore the themes of cooperation and conflict, differences and similarities, progress and regression across the history of Europe, which still shape our views today. The concept behind the permanent exhibition focuses on trends and influences which have shaped and continue to shape Europe, and how ideas, trends and developments originating in Europe influence the world. How is history and specific historic events perceived in different countries in Europe, which common experiences determine how Europeans see themselves and others, and what does this mean for integration and cooperation in the EU and beyond?
