|Title:||Borders, Brexit and the Irish Academic Community||Authors:||Fuchs, Anne||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9997||Date:||1-Sep-2017||Online since:||2019-04-17T08:53:10Z||Abstract:||In the autumn of 1989 I was part of the worldwide television audience that watched the fall of the Berlin Wall with astonished incredulity. I had grown up in postwar West Germany with the conviction that the Berlin Wall, and the division of the country and of Europe, were the forever-cemented historical outcome of National Socialism and of the Second World War. The historic events of 1989 then taught me the lesson that history is contingent and unpredictable.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||The British Academy||Journal:||British Academy Review||Volume:||31||Start page:||25||End page:||28||Keywords:||Country borders; Brexit; EU; Ireland; Higher education||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
