In 2017 UACES celebrated its 50th anniversary. As part of the commemorative activities UACES commissioned a number of recorded conversations with key actors in UACES’s history as well as those who continue to play a role in its present. In this special section of JCER, the recordings are featured alongside a full transcript. In their preface, David, Drake and Linnemann introduce the special section and consider what UACES’s past can tell us about the future of European Studies and academia more generally.
