Jean Monnet Lecture Series – Memory between Literature and History
Memory and literature are constitutive for an understanding of Europe, its past and present: without them, there can be no grasp of what ‘Europe’ means. In this series, an historian, a novelist and a literary critic will explore the ways in which memory, literature and history interact to shape contemporary Europe.
