Brexit in World History: the U.K., the E.U., and the Present Crisis of Neoliberalism

The Platypus Affiliated Society is proud to host James Vaughn, PhD., for his talk on the United Kingdom's forthcoming withdrawal from the European Union in three historical contexts: 1. the development of capitalism and Great Power rivalry from the nineteenth century to the present; 2. the evolution of the liberal world order and European integration since the Second World War; and 3. the rise, triumph, and crisis of neoliberalism from the 1970s to today. There will be plenty of time for discussion afterwards. Light refreshments will be served!
