Transnationalism and Identity

13 May 2019
3:00 pm
Ex-Boccherini Complex (Piazza San Ponziano, 6) - Conference Room

Our agenda in this seminar will be concerned with transformations occurring as a consequence of contemporary transnational (or globalising) developments. Specifically, we will address what the translated presence of migrants means, or could mean for the twenty- first century configuration of Europe and for how Europe might now re-
negotiate its own history, and its own historically accumulated sense of what constitutes its ‘identity’, its ‘heritage’ and the values that it stands for: We are interested in contemporary challenges to European culture,
and in how European states and institutions might respond to the new demands being put before them by their migrant ‘minorities’, in all their multiplicity and diversity.
