James Mark, Professor of History at the University of Exeter, will elaborate on his project on post-war European history and global decolonization.
How did the end of European Empires shape the processes of Europeanisation in the second half of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries? How were its dominant iterations– such as neoliberal or ‘fortress’ Europe – forged in the reaction to this transformation? How were anti-colonial visions of Europe reshaped? How does such historical work help to explain the current ‘crisis of Europeanness’ from Brexit to the Balkans?
