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 fea-sibility and legitimacy of the EU disturb its roadmaps and rationales. At the same time, however, this putative crisis may provoke a pertinent re-exami-nation and reshaping of European institutions and practices. In this context, political identification is, more than ever, a crucial area of research.
To facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation on identification in Europe, a work-shop is held over two days on the shores of Lake Constance at the Zeppelin University, Friedrichshafen, Germany. During the workshop, there will also be a student poster session to give the possibility for scientific exchange bet-ween researchers and students.
Therefore, we invite poster contributions from students with different disciplinary perspectives: political sociology, political science, political theory, European studies, social psychology and international relations.
The workshop is free of charge and travel. There is a limited number of travel grants available. Submit a short (maximum 250 words) abstract (not yet the final poster) of your research project to
with your name, affiliation and contact details no later than 21 September 2018. Participants will be notified of final selection by the 24 September. Questions should be directed to Nadine Meidert.
