Next week, the Franklin College and the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts at the University of Georgia and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies at the University of Notre Dame will host the second annual Berlin Seminar in Transnational European Studies:

The week-long residential seminar brings together 20 faculty members and Ph.D. students from both institutions, representing all ranks and many different disciplines, this year ranging from Spanish, Italian and Latin American and Caribbean studies to History, Political Science and International Affairs, to Film studies, Anthropology, Philosophy and Theology. Mirroring the diversity of seminar participants, the program features speakers with equally diverse portfolios hailing from countries such as France, Poland, Hungary, England, the Ukraine, Ireland, Italy, the U.S., and Germany. 
 
A joint initiative of the University of Georgia and the University of Notre Dame, made possible through generous support by the Max Kade Foundation, the Berlin Seminar in Transnational European Studies seeks to expand knowledge and understanding of transnational Europe among U.S.-based scholars, advancing the discourse on campus on issues related to Europe, the EU, and Germany’s role in the European Union. Within this larger context, it aims to initiate new research projects and curricular innovation, including collaboration between faculty from the two participating institutions.

Two seminar events featuring international experts are free open to the public:

Tuesday June 4, 8 p.m.

European Journalism: Challenges, Threats and Global Context
