This installment of Conversations on Europe is in collaboration with the Center for European Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

The ESC’s 2020-21 theme, Creating Europe, explores both the political, social, cultural, and geographical forces that have given shape to contemporary Europe and also individuals who create and are creative in their daily or artistic expressions of what it means to be European.

This session will be highlighting different approaches to constructing a common European identity. Our interdisciplinary panel of experts will focus on EU language policies and multilingualism within European institutions. Join us for this virtual, interactive discussion.

Audience participation is encouraged.
