Join Dr Richard Millington for a discussion of Ostalgie – nostalgia for East Germany – in which he will consider why a surprising number of former East Germans miss their lives before 1990 and long for a time in which they could not live, speak their mind or travel freely.

Are you interested in foreign cultures, passionate about languages and want to learn more about exciting places? On the last Thursday of the month, ‘Pint-sized philosophy’ is run by the Department of Languages at the University of Chester. It is a great means to learn more about other countries in a laid-back atmosphere. The sessions are normally run in English by lecturers of Universities in the North West. Grab a glass of wine or a cuppa and join us.
