Dear Friends,

Together with Dr Matthew D’Auria, a colleague from the School of History,
Dr  Jan Vermeiren is going to launch the Institute for the Study of Ideas
Europe (ISIE) on Wednesday, 27 February, at 5pm. Prof Rolf Petri from the
University of Venice has kindly agreed to give the keynote lecture on ‘The Idea of Europe: Revisiting a Long Story’. The event will take place in Arts
2.02 and will be followed by a reception on the fourth floor of the Arts 2
building (canapés and wine).

The Institute and the launch event are sponsored by the British Academy
(Rising Star Engagement Award). Our aim is to promote the interdisciplinary
study of concepts, images, and discourses of Europe and to facilitate
international collaboration in this important and very topical field of
research. We are very excited about ISIE and look forward to celebrating
its launch with you. The event is free of charge.

With all best wishes,

Marguerite Finn

Dear Friends,

It is time to tell you about the next UNA LunchBox talk on 15th February 2019 at 1pm in the Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich. Our speaker will be Dr Jan Vermeiren who is a Senior Lecturer in the School of History at UEA.

The title of the talk will be  “Britain and Europe – the Continental Perspective”  which is a very topical subject at the moment with Brexit just a few weeks away.

Dr Vermeiren’s research interests cover a number of areas in German and European history in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. He is particularly interested in the history of German nationalism and geopolitical thought and questions of European integration. 

This is a very important and relevant topic and I hope as many people as possible will come to hear it.

Best wishes,

Marguerite Finn

Dear everyone

may peace be with you

just to say that last year’s 13th annual NPC&PC event passed off successfully

attendance was good

The Mayor’s visit to open the event officially and also start the Peace Cycle 

was very welcome

the contribution from the many participating organisations was commendable and we thank everyone who came along to visit

Our next event is already booked for 21st September 2019 exactly the same as UN International Peace Day

so we really hope that our message

Peace is Achievable will reach and embrace everyone on that day
