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.
The Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at FIU, along with other European Union Centers of Excellence from the U.S. will participate.
In the Spring semester 2022, we will be able to connect with experts on Europe via virtual roundtable for four conversations from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays:
