Third Lecture of the iASK Series: “The Future of Europe in Global Context” by Patrick Pasture (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)

“European unity is a dream that has appealed to the imagination since the Middle Ages. Its motives have varied from a longing for peace to a deep-rooted abhorrence of diversity, as well as a yearning to maintain Europe’s colonial dominance. This book offers a multifaceted history that takes in account the European imagination in a global context.”

Venue: Zwinger Old Tower, Chernel St. 16. H-9730 Kőszeg
