Local Giant, Global Pigmy? Images and Perceptions of the EU in the Eyes of Asia-Pacific

Public Lecture
18 October 2011

The Euroculture Erasmus Mundus Master Programme kindly invites you to attend the lecture given by Dr. Natalia Chaban (Deputy Director and Senior Lecturer over the Bar at the NCRE - University of Canterbury in New Zealand; Jean Monnet Chair in European Identity and Culture).  

In her lecture, dr. Chaban will present a ground-breaking analysis of how the EU is perceived outside its borders which complements the limited existing empirical assessment on the subject. The lecture will reveal main results from a trans–national comparative research project ‘The EU in the Eyes of Asia–Pacific” conducted by the National Centre for Research on Europe in New Zealand since 2002 and involving 20 Asian-Pacific locations. This interdisciplinary, methodologically-pluralistic project studies the constructionoftheEU’ sinternational identity in Asia-Pacific news media and among the general publicandnational stakeholders in the region.


The lecture will take place on October 18th, 2011 ( from 1 to 3 PM).

Location : Heymanszaal, Academy Building. Entrance free.
