General overview of different and interdisciplinary research approaches and projects
Broader knowledge of manifold perspectives on “Europe”

Against the setting of the geographical, political and social reforms and configurations within Europe since the fall of the Soviet Union, the Balkan war as the global challenges of the last years, the original “concept of Europe” of the 1990s – setting a European community in solidarity devoted itself to the Charta of the Human Rights – has increasingly come under critic. At the latest, even extreme eurosceptical movements have rejected it.  

In view of the actual, real circumstances that challenge the “European community”, many contemporary studies about Europe express the necessity to question, reformulate, and analyse not only initial concepts of Europe but also the different attempts to conceptualise a historiography of Europe. Moreover, these questions do not only refer to Europe’s present and future but also and decisively to Europe’s past. Especially, when historical concepts of Europe seem to be, e.g., unconscious, not reappraised, stereotyped or simply unknown.

Critical issues of today that deal with the concepts of Europe refer, e.g., to the question of European frontiers, the admission of refugees, or the overcoming of social challenges that go together with transnational migration. These topics obviously can be (better) understood and maybe resolved by taking into account present as well as historic perspectives on Europe.

The interdisciplinary lecture that deals with actual research questions about Europe deriving from Early Modern and Contemporary History, Didactics of History, Philosophy, Art History, Ethnology, Slavonic, Islamic, Anglophone and Romance Studies wants to contribute to the analysis, discussion and reformulation of different “concepts of Europe”. The speakers are members of the new founded research centre “Europakonzepte” at the University of Innsbruck or rather cooperate with them.
