The conference is a unique opportunity to bring together different perspectives and methodologies involved in shaping the complexities and contradictions of current European identity discourses. A fundamental methodological pluralism is considered a key condition for addressing these complexities and contradictions at a time of crisis.

The conference aims to bring together researchers interested in analyzing European identities in various discourses. Researchers from many different disciplines will investigate historical, geopolitical, geo-cultural, geo-economic and social perspectives on Europe. The conference also invites contributions that explore the role of diversity and borders in forging and re-shaping European identities.
