BRADY LECTURE 2017 WITH ANNE MCELVOY
GOETHE-INSTITUT LONDON 50 Princes Gate Exhibition Road SW7 2PH London
“Awkward cousins: From Deutschland 83 to Brexit and beyond. Why crazy Brits and tidy Germans need to get along”
We are delighted that journalist Anne McElvoy will be our speaker for this year’s Brady Lecture.
From early stays in Germany as a teenager to studying in East Germany before 1989, covering the fall of the Wall and charting the odyssey of Angela Merkel and turbulences of Brexit, The Economist journalist and broadcaster Anne McElvoy has been an ardent, sometimes critical, Germanophile.
Her lecture will explore the changing nature of the Anglo-German relations from final phase of the Cold War in Europe to the post-Brexit era.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A chaired by journalist Quentin Peel.
We welcome all ticket holders to join us for a reception after the lecture.
The Goethe-Institut London holds its Brady Lecture every year in memory of the achievements of the academic and broadcaster Philip Brady (1932-97) who contributed remarkably to cultural exchange between Germany and Great Britain.
Anne McElvoy is a British journalist for The Economist and the London Evening Standard, and a BBC broadcaster.
Quentin Peel is a journalist (formerly Financial Times) and associate fellow with the Europe Programme at Chatham House.
