Anniversary States: Cultural Diplomacy in Brexit Britain

In 2018 many East European states have been marking their 100th anniversaries. In these celebrations, the power of culture has been used to highlight their rich national histories and commitment to the European ideal. The power of culture has taken on added importance in a context in which the relations between these new EU states and Britain are in the process of re-negotiation in light of the UK's forthcoming departure from the EU. Will culture be able to form a new bridge between these nations? This roundtable is part of the CResCID open symposia series that provides a platform for intellectual exchange and engagement across the academic community and with wider audiences.
