The Missing Pages of European History with Teresa Reiter


In the latest Vienna Coffee House Conversation, Ivan Vejvoda speaks to political activism expert, Head of Communications at Forum Alpbach and Europe’s Futures fellow Teresa Reiter about the way that history is taught, utilized and remembered in twenty-first century Europe. From the ways that national foreign policy shapes curricula to the tendency to write the recent history of the Western Balkans out of a mainstream narrative that sees the creation of the EU as a successful project to end war in the continent – Ivan and Teresa bring their personal and academic perspectives to an issue that is central to how Europe sees itself.
