Universities: Networks and Identities (2022)

This seminar, held four times a year, is intended to raise discussion and interrogations on the subject of universities from a glocal perspective. It encourages dialogue about the interconnections between educational institutions in Europe; their role in building identities and reflecting on the other(s); their relevance as epicenters and promoters of cultural and intellectual movements in Europe and beyond.
