At the first in our series of conferences, members of our project network spoke on two public panels. Please follow the links to see recordings:

As part of the second panel, Dr Julia De Clerck-Sachsse presented the report, published jointly between the Dahrendorf Programme and the IWM, Look Who's Talking: Telling Europe's Story in the EU Capital

Oxford, 28-30 April 2022

The theme for our second conference, Europe in a Changing World, deeply explored the key questions of our project - how do China, India, Turkey, Russia, and the United States view and understand Europe and the EU and why? What are their current relations with Europe, including points of convergence and divergence, and how might future relations develop? In what ways can mutual understanding be enhanced? - in seven expert panels and much lively conversation. The conference programme can be found here.

As part of this conference, the British-Chinese novelist and filmmaker Xiaolu Guo delivered the 13th Annual Dahrendorf Lecture, Dreams and Reflections: A Chinese Artist's Discovery of Europe. Alongside clips from her extensive filmography, Guo reflected on topics such as culture, ways of seeing, migration, alienation, memory, and identity which have profoundly influenced her own life and which have emerged in many of the conversations connected to this project as key points of understanding in the relationship between Europe and CITRUS.
