Dear Friends,
This is to remind you of the next UNA talk at 1pm on Friday 18th May in the Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW. The talk is entitled “A Fit of Absentmindedness? The Challenge of Brexit for British Foreign Policy” and will be given by Professor Thomas Otte from the School of History at UEA.

Professor Otte teaches Diplomatic, International and Military History and he has
been an adviser to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). He is a trustee of the Foreign Office Historical Collection, and is a member of the national executive committee of the British International History Group (BIHG).

He is also the author or editor of some fifteen books, including, most recently, the award-winning July Crisis: How the World Descended into War, Summer 1914 (CUP, 2014). He has has published numerous essays in edited collections and articles in leading journals, including the English Historical Review, Historical Journal, and History.

We are very fortunate to have this busy man come and talk to us. Today, Professor Otte will talk about Brexit set against the broader sweep of the history of Britain’s relations with the wider world, and how Brexit may now affect the country’s standing and influence.

This is a very timely subject and I do hope you will come and take part in it.

Best wishes,

Marguerite Finn
Vice Chair UNA (Norwich & District)
