The Fall of the Wall 25 Years On: Consequences for the US and Germany

Monday, November 3, 2014

4 p.m.

McKinney Conference Room

Please note, time and location have changed.

This panel seeks to turn our usual focus on the fall of the wall upside down. That is, rather than have American scholars ask what the Fall of the Wall meant for Germany, two German scholars from the Free University of Berlin (Christian Lammert, an international relations scholar and Boris Vormann, a human geographer) will discuss what the fall of the wall meant for the US. The response will be given by a British expert on European politics talking about what the fall of the wall meant for the rest of Europe (Jonathan Hopkin, The London School of Economics) . The panel is organized by political scientist and Watson Fellow Mark Blyth.
