Jonathan Walker, author, member of the British Commission for Military History and Honorary Research Fellow in War Studies at the University of Birmingham referierte zu “Power & Passion in the Great War”.
Aus der Einladung:
„Jonathan Walker examines the colourful and influential lives of three Edwardian mistresses of the Prime Minister, the Commander-in-Chief and the Quartermaster-General. These were not the quiet and submissive women who lived their lives in the shadows; Winifred Bennett was a society beauty; Emilie Grigsby was a fabulously wealthy American; the Hon Sylvia Henley was the daughter of one of the great aristocratic Liberal families of the age.“

Prof. Dr. Andreas Fahrmeir, professor of modern history at Goethe University, Frankurt am Main. He received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 1997 and his Habilitation from Frankfurt in 2001, referierte zu:
“Windrush, Brexit, Australia’s Senate and the Irish Border: Imperial Subjecthood Meets the Modern Nation-State”
Aus der Synopsis in der Einladung:
„A number of recent developments have drawn attention to peculiarities of British citizenship and migration policies: the gradual transition from Imperial to national citizenships, the complex links between post-imperial citizenship(s) and political rights in various jurisdictions, and the gaps in immigration documents. These issues emerged in different contexts and have occurred from Ireland to Australia. They are closely linked, however, by the historical trajectories of legal definitions of a British subject from 1608 on the one hand and decisions in favour of cost-effective and pragmatic immigration control practices on the other. Both are being challenged by the current transition to a different model of citizenship in post-Brexit Britain, as well as in some Commonwealth countries. The talk will explore how this situation came about and what could result from it.“
Lecture „Crisis what Crisis. The Great Rebalancing of Western Democracies by David Goodhart, on 27th of June 2019
„But what is undeniable is that the modern world in Britain and other rich democracies has been designed by and for the Anywheres – the knowledge economy and the centrality of cognitive ability to modern achievement, the expansion of higher education and relative neglect of technical and vocational learning, the rapid social change represented by mass immigration and a more open economy, and the decline of the family and more stable communities. This has produced a backlash that we call populism. And finding a new settlement between Anywheres and Somewheres is now the central task of modern politics“ (Taken from: The Conservative journal, Issue 5, November 2017).
