European Public Sphere: Politics, Communication, Discourse

The idea of European Public Sphere – of media-sustained imaginary spaces where all of the diversities and commonalities of multicultural Europe are expressed and celebrated – is an appealing and thought-provoking concept and one that continuously attracts the attention of scholars, policy-makers, writers, and journalists from all over Europe. Therefore, the goal of the research cluster „European Public Sphere – Politics, Communication, Discourse“ at VMU is to find commonalities and intersections among those very diverse fields of Europeanization studies ranging from journalism, communication studies and identity issues, to regional studies, comparative politics and international relations. At the same time, this research perspective seeks to address new questions and includes these into the comparative research agenda.
