Event description
The Idea of Europe

About this Event

In a Britain beset by the uncertainties of the Brexit project, how can we rethink our European identity as more cultural than political?

Is culture the heart of Europe, and if so, is it doing enough to lead Europe – and challenge it? In a Britain beset by the uncertainties of the Brexit project, how can we rethink our European identity as more cultural than political? The ERC funded Beyond Enemy Lines project and the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture at King’s College London, in collaboration with Granta magazine, present a one day symposium bringing together activists, creative artists and academics to ask urgent questions about Europe, past and present. Speakers include Elisabeth Åsbrink, Tash Aw, George Blaustein, Stephen Brockmann, Lara Feigel, Miriam François, Alicja Gescinska, Srećko Horvat, Gavin Jacobson, Esther Kinsky, Suketu Mehta, Ben Schofield, Lyndsey Stonebridge and Adam Thirlwell.

Here you can find a programme for the day, which runs from 9.30am-6pm.

The day will conclude with an evening panel:

6.30-8.00pm

The Idea of Europe

Tash Aw, Alicja Gescinska and Srećko Horvat in conversation with Lyndsey Stonebridge

This will launch Granta 149 - Europe: Strangers in the Land. The evening panel can be attended either independently or as part of the symposium,and will be followed by a drinks reception.

Please register for either the symposium or panel discussion or select both if you will attend the whole event.
