CFP: Workshop « Community in Crisis? Political Identification in Europe »

12-13 October 2018 – Friedrichshafen, Germany

Once regarded as the bastion of peace, unity and progress, the European Union project may be in crisis. Populist and anti-European tendencies disrupt decision-making procedures and expressions of doubts regarding both the feasibility and legitimacy of the EU disturb its roadmaps and rationales. At the same time, however, this putative crisis may provoke a pertinent re-examination and reshaping of European institutions and practices. In this context, political identification is, more than ever, a crucial area of research. This workshop is intended to facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation on identification in Europe and aims to balance empirical with theoretical contributions. Held over two days on the shores of Lake Constance, the workshop will involve three panels. More details can be found here:
