EU Day

20th EU Day

The European Union Center is excited to announce the Keynote Address for its 20th Annual European Union Day. This year, we are honored to be joined by Michael Ignatieff, Canadian historian, writer and former politician, Professor of History and Rector Emeritus of Central European University, Budapest and Vienna.

His keynote address ("Academic Freedom in Europe: Threats Within and Without") will take place on Thursday November 18 at 12 P.M. CST. Dr. Ignatieff will discuss the authoritarian resurgence in Eastern Europe and how it has affected university autonomy and freedom of thought, as well as the lessons these stories have for the United States. You can register for this virtual lecture here.

Additionally, we are pleased to announce as our EU Day of Art event, the Italian modern dance company Artemis Danza will perform "Dante Solo Inferno" on Thursday, December 2 at 7 P.M. CST in Lincoln Hall Theater. "Dante Solo Inferno" is a reinterpretation of select passages from the Divine Comedy and commemorates the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri.
