The Creating Europe Speaker Series is a two-year project funded by a Jean Monnet Project grant from the European Commission and part of a larger initiative to reimagine European Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. The series will explore ideas of Europe from Late Antiquity to the contemporary period and consider ways in which processes of “integration” and “disintegration” have been at work in Europe for much of its history.

In this first session, Professor Klein will join Pitt Professors Shirin Fozi (History of Art and Architecture) and James Picket (History) for a discussion of his work and how it informs our understanding of Europe in the Medieval period.

Place: Posvar 4130 – masks required, University of Pittsburgh campus community members only
