Europeans in conversation

  • Linguistic traces of social developments
  • In dialogue

Unprotected open speech in a space protected by salon-capable language.

Europeans in Conversation builds on the great salon tradition in Germany to discuss what can be described as European identity: Europe’s diversity yesterday and today. The joys and sorrows that bring us together. And the centuries-old concern about the search for and maintenance of peace.

Social developments leave their mark on language. How does the German language present itself today?
