Workshop: Studying the construction of Europe

7th October 2020, 13.00 – 17.00


While Europe’s open borders are under pressure from migration, EU sceptics internally in EU member states, and now also the Covid-19 pandemic, the time calls for studies of and innovative re-thinking of European space; how is and has it been practiced and organised so far and how should we approach it in the future to come?


Therefore, the DSE PhD and Early Career Network is pleased to invite early career researchers working within the broader field of European Studies to a feedback workshop taking place in connection to the DSE’s annual conference the 8th-9th October 2020 with the title ‘New Borders in Europe?’. While the workshop touches upon the conference theme of borders and borderings, the main aim of the workshop is to help participants to develop their own research. The workshop offers a great opportunity to discuss participants’ current works with peers as well as to get feedback from the keynote speaker at the DSE conference, Olivier Thomas Kramsch from Radboud University.

The workshop is open for all topics and early career scholars working within different fields of European Studies.
