Conversations on Europe:Reckoning with the Past I: Decolonizing the Curriculum in Europe

Event information

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.

For the first Conversations on Europe for Spring semester, join us and the University of Pittsburgh for an interactive virtual roundtable discussion on “Reckoning with the Past I: Decolonizing the Curriculum in Europe.”
