'German Pasts - German Futures'. Postgraduate Conference at the University of Leeds

'German Pasts - German Futures' brings together postgraduates from across the UK, Ireland and Germany to present cutting-edge work on contemporary German-(language) history, culture and society. We are interested in the most recent debates on how the German past is being remembered and memorialised, and - as important - on what kind of future is emerging, or being imagined, for the German-speaking countries.

Dr Hans Kundnani, Senior Transatlantic Fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the United States, will present a plenary talk at the conference.
