Seven Nations Series focuses on regionalism in Europe
Throughout the fall at Georgia Southern University, a number of lectures, discussions, workshops and concerts are focusing on the seven Celtic nations and the larger topic of regionalism among those nations.
The Seven Nations Series continues on Tuesday, Nov. 7, when Charles Briggs, professor; Charles Crouch and Robert Batchelor, assistant professors; all in the Department of History, present ‘Regionalism in Europe: Breaking or Re-making the Nation State?” The lecture and discussion will be held in the College of Information Technology Building, Room 1004, at 4 p.m.
The professors will offer insights into the historical development and current status of Europe’s diverse regions. As their presentation occurs during National French Week, they will highlight the French experience in particular.
They will also pay special attention to the impact of the European Union on provincial governance, regional economic development and minority languages.
Admission is free and reservations are not required.
The events are sponsored by the Campus Life Enrichment Committee, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art, Department of Communication Arts, Department of Foreign Languages, Department of History, Department of Music, Department of Political Science, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Center for International Studies, Center for Irish Studies, Southern Coastal Humanities Consortium, John Humma Cinema Arts Program, European Union Certificate Program and the Religious Studies Program.
