Imagining Europe. Religion in Representations of a Common Ground

In the contemporary society, "Europe" is a broadly debated concept. The project focuses on the normative aspects and impacts of (audio-)visual and material communication that shapes general ideas of Europe as a common, yet ambivalent and contested frame for identity processes. Particularly, we are interested in the role of religion in visual and material culture and the related practices that produce an idea of Europe as a common ground, in a spatial, temporal, or societal sense. By considering the religious dimensions of historical or contemporary aspects of European culture, the case studies could focus on questions like:

  • material, visual, or medial representations of Europe and their normative performance,
  • the relationship between dominant and subversive medial representations of Europe,
  • dynamics of and transformations in representing of Europe,
  • the negotiation of diversity and equality in representing Europe,
  • localisation and specificity of different representation of Europe and their norma-tive agendas in European countries,
  • localisation and specificity of different representation of Europe and their normative agendas in countries in other continents,
  • identity processes linked to representations of Europe.
