Wednesday, August 24, 2016

LAWRENCE — In a referendum June 23, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. The University of Kansas European Studies Program will present a panel discussion with three faculty members to discuss the vote's significance for the UK and its political and economic effects on the EU. 

The event will take place 4-5:30 p.m. Aug. 29 in the Kansas Room of the Kansas Union. 

The panelists:
•    Victor Bailey, Charles W. Battey Distinguished Professor of Modern British History and director, Hall Center for the Humanities
•    Robert Rohrschneider, Sir Robert Worcester Distinguished Professor of Political Science
•    Felix Meschke, associate professor, School of Business 

The session will be moderated by Lorie Vanchena, associate professor of Germanic languages & literatures and academic director of the European Studies Program. 

The event is part of the new Global Headlines series organized by KU’s Center for Global & International Studies. The goal of this series is to create an opportunity for people to digest and decipher major news stories and issues as they occur. It is co-sponsored by the European Studies Program and the Center for Russian, East European & Eurasian Studies.
