Europe and the Everyday: Grassroots, EU and the Politics of Crisis (EUEve)

A new research network, funded by the UACES Collaborative Research Network scholarship.

Aston University, University of Leicester, Canterbury Christ Church University

A new research network, funded by the UACES Collaborative Research Network scholarship, “Europe and the Everyday: Grassroots, EU and the Politics of Crisis (EUEve)” is developing a research network across and beyond Europe, focusing on four main question, (1) What impacts do policies such as budget cuts have on individuals and communities, across different European contexts? (2) How have recent crises such as austerity and the refugee crisis, shaped the ways in which ʻEuropeʼ is understood and represented locally? (3) How do marginalised communities, and non-mainstream voters such as young people, engage with and experience, the idea of ʻEuropeʼ? (4) How is ʻEuropeʼ entrenched in local spaces, cities and neighbourhoods, and what spatial or geographic evidence can we observe?

This will be done through a series of workshops, conference panels and seminars, the first scheduled at Aston University, in September in 2016. Jelena Obradovic-Wochnik (Aston University), Simona Guerra (University of Leicester) and Soeren Keil (Canterbury Christ Church University) coordinate the network with Paul Anderson (Canterbury Christ Church University), Communication Officer, and have already established a Twitter feed and online website, https://europeandtheeveryday.wordpress.com/ open to subscription to receive updates and CfP.

The EUEve network promises stronger engagement for PhD students and the discussion of important questions between researchers not just from Politics and International Relations, but also from related disciplines, and welcomes new members.
