David O'Sullivan, the European Union's ambassador to the United States, will deliver the 2019 Nanovic Forum Lecture on September 18th (Wednesday) at 5:00 p.m. in the Donald R. Keough Seminar Room, located in 1030 Jenkins Nanovic Halls.
Sponsored by Notre Dame’s Nanovic Institute for European Studies, O'Sullivan will deliver a lecture entitled “Europe and the United States: Friends and Allies, or Rivals?” The lecture will be free and open to the public. O'Sullivan will be introduced by William Collins Donahue, director of the Nanovic Institute, and the Rev. John J. Cavanaugh, C.S.C., Professor of the Humanities at the University of Notre Dame.
The purpose of the Nanovic Forum is to bring European leaders from a variety of academic, cultural, and professional fields to Notre Dame to discuss issues of major importance in Europe today. The Forum was established in 2011 through the generous support of Robert and Elizabeth Nanovic.
Past speakers in the Nanovic Forum have included Hanna Suchocka (former Prime Minister of Poland), Horst Koehler (former President of Germany), Krzysztof Zanussi (filmmaker), Lord Patten of Barnes (Chancellor of Oxford), and other eminent professionals in education, literature, and law.
The Nanovic Institute for European Studies at the University of Notre Dame is committed to enriching the intellectual culture of Notre Dame by creating an integrated, interdisciplinary home for students and faculty to explore the evolving ideas, cultures, beliefs and institutions that shape Europe today. The institute is an integral part of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs.
