Call for papers: New Nationalisms: Sources, Agendas, Languages (Wrocław, Poland, September 25-27)
This conference seeks to confront the discourse of affective mobilization propagating anti-EU and anti-immigration policies in many European countries, with its opponent, the discourse of civic ethos and cosmopolitanism. How did it happen that xenophobia and anti-European sentiment have become a vocal presence in public discourse?

DEADLINE: March 31, 2017.
