“Post-colonial, post-migrant, post-imperial, post-holocaust Europe: Struggling with ‘internal differences’” The lab “Critical Europeanization Studies” engages with foundational bases of Europe, bases from the past, relevant in the present and shaping European futures. These foundations define not only its internal structures and narratives but as well the relation of Europe to other parts of the world, defined as the ‘west’, the ‘east’, the ‘rest’ or ‘the Global South’.

The starting point for a reflexive approach of Europe inherits an ambivalent position – on one hand to nurture the European history of diversity, tolerance, justice and democracy while on the other hand European nations withdraw from a ‘European common sense’ and follow a nationalist supremacist discourse.

In this session, and after the first discussion on “Reflexive Europeanization”, Carla J. Maier and Noa Ha will take a close look at the production and definition of ‘internal differences’ and how these differentiations define not only the differences between European nations but as well between and among European Others. By setting two foci of discussions, the first on struggles and struggling Europe and the second on archives and archiving Europe, we are interested to contextualize the internal difference and to capture the ‘ghost Europe’. Deriving from this discussion we like to formulate the relevance to engage with *Europe* while it is dissolving in nationalist rhetoric and politics.

The purpose of this session is not only to have a discussion among us as researchers but as well to formulate key questions for further research for critical European studies.

We invite all guests to participate in the discussion and contribute to formulate these key questions.

 

Schedule:

10.00 - 10.15h Welcome

10.15 - 10.30h Introduction by Carla Maier and Noa Ha to

“Post-colonial, post-migrant, post-imperial, post-holocaust Europe: Struggling with ‘internal differences’”

10.30 – 11.30h Focus 1: Struggles and struggling Europe (Chaired by Noa Ha)

This focus looks at examples of the legacy of various colonial histories in Europe and its effects on the composition of European societies and struggles around recognition, self-definition and self-representation while articulating race and colonialism. The examples will refer to the Dutch and the German context.

11:30 – 11:45h Short Break

11:45 – 12:45h Focus 2: Archives and archiving Europe (Chaired by Carla J. Maier)

This focus analyzes the aesthetics and politics of migrating objects and travelling archives in the context of sound and music from the Balkans and the UK, asking how internal differences and questions of longing of belonging are negotiated. The examples will work as vantage points to discuss how to investigate archives of a globally entangled Europe “less as a container of the accidental trace” but “as a site of a deliberate project” (Appardurai 2003).

12:45 – 13:00h Summary – formulating key questions
