Conference: EUROPEAN IDENTITIES? Regionalism, Nationalism, and Religion


Location: University of Notre Dame London Centre, United Kingdom

Organized by Professors Andrew Gould and Anthony M. Messina, the conference convenes American and European scholars to address an overarching question: What are the implications of the persistence of robust regional and nationalist identities and movements and the emergence of newer, religious and ethnic identities within the member states of the European Union for the project of “ever closer” European integration? Advanced conference registration is required as space is limited. For questions regarding the conference, contact: Monica Caro, M.A., J.D. The conference will be held October 17th & 18th, 2008.

Sponsored by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies with support from the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.
