School of Communication and Culture

The aim of the workshop is to investigate changing concepts of Europe from the 18th century to the present and to ask how the cultural, social, spatial and historical dimensions of “Europe” have been and are imagined in relation to the national and the global. We are particularly interested in the way media from different periods convey and circulate knowledge on Europe. Contributions may focus on a wide variety of media in various modes, e.g. linguistic, visual or aural, and may refer to dictionaries, encyclopaedias, textbooks, educational media, print media, literature, works of art, popular culture, journals and magazines, among others.

The workshop aims to facilitate international and interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration and is open to researchers from all relevant disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

The conference is arranged by the network of ”Constructions of European and National Identities in Educational Media (Eured)” (https://projects.au.dk/interconnectedness), with support from the Independent Research Fund Denmark ttps://dff.dk/en.

Conference organizers:
Katja Gorbahn, Aarhus University
Marcus Otto, Leibniz Institute for Educational Media in Braunschweig.
