2 December 2022: Book launch in Utrecht

On 2 December, our main output, the handbook “The European Experience. A Multi-Perspective History of Modern Europe, 1500–2000“, will be presented to the public at Utrecht University. We have invited Sonja Levsen (Professor of Modern History at the University of Trier) and Jörg Requate (Professor of History of Western Europe 18th-20th century at the University of Kassel) to act as commentators of the handbook. They are the editors of EuropeDebate, a platform that is close to the aims and scope of this project, so it will be interesting to hear what they make of our book.
