Event description

Description

Europe in the Archives, Europe in the Future

Dates: 12-13 October 2017
Venue: European University Institute (EUI), Florence

This two-day conference will bring together academics, archivists and practitioners to examine the impact of Brexit on UK-Europe relations, as well as on the discipline of European Studies in the UK.

The 50th Anniversary of UACES as the UK-based association for the study of Europe coincides with the UK's triggering of Article 50. This conference will draw on the Historical Archives of the European Union (HAEU) and the newly-deposited UACES archival materials, to examine ideas and lessons for the next 50 years of the UK's relations with the EU.

The conference will also consider the development and meaning of European Studies in the UK, prior to accession, during the accession process, and in the future as Britain prepares to leave the EU.
