Public lecture hosted by the Centre for Nordic Studies and the Helsinki Centre for Intellectual History with Martin Conway (Oxford).
What happened next: Europe after the Democratic Age
Thursday, May 12 at 16-18
University Main building, room 3032
In his recent book Western Europe’s Democratic Age 1945-68, Martin Conway draws the contours of a particular form of post-war democracy in Europe, preoccupied with stability and consensus, and cautious of the dangers of popular rule. In his guest lecture, Conway will discuss his book in the light of the fate of democracy after its democratic age. Is this version of democracy still with us as an ideal, or has it been replaced with something else – how and with what?
