Bristol Penguin Lecture 2013: Europe: The Struggle for Supremacy
Tuesday, 23 April 2013 from 18:00 to 19:30 (GMT)
Bristol, United Kingdom
At the heart of Europe's history lies a puzzle. In most of the world sprawling empires, kingdoms or republics appear to be the norm. By contrast Europe has remained stubbornly chaotic and fractured. This lecture tells the story of Europe's constantly shifting geopolitics and the peculiar circumstances that have made it both so impossible to dominate, but also so dynamic and ferocious.
Speaker Professor Brendan Simms, University of Cambridge, gives the Second Annual Penguin History Lecture, a joint venture with Penguin Press to present exciting new ideas to a Bristol audience.

Centre for Public Engagement
The CPE supports and promotes public engagement with research and teaching across the University. This involves running programmes of public talks and festivals, and helping academics to engage with the public by working with them to attract funding, providing appropriate training and facilitating collaboration with partners outside the University. We share ideas about public engagement with other universities through the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement.
