The Oxford Union, described by by Harold MacMillan as "the last bastion of free speech in the Western world," has extended an invitation to Germanic Languages and Literatures Professor Andrei Markovits to speak in a debate on the motion, “This House Believes Patriotism Divides Us More Than It Unites Us.”

The debate will take place on a Thursday in May or June; please stay tuned to the German department’s website for updates.
