The human condition

A conversation with Martha Albertson Fineman

As privatization displaces a sense of civic responsibility on both sides of the Atlantic, care-workers become ever more isolated. Martha Albertson Fineman insists that, rather than the gender of the person doing the care work, it's the care work itself that simply isn't valued in today's society. [ more ]

Articles published in Eurozine


Étienne Balibar

A new impulse – but for which Europe?

The triumph of the principle of competition among and within European member states has generated a continuous aggravation of disparities, writes Etienne Balibar. But the French philosopher stands by his vision of a Europe other than that of bankers, technocrats and political profiteers. [Catalan version added] [more]

Ulrike Guérot

Europe as a republic

The story of Europe in the twenty-first century

The system currently known as the European Union is the embodiment of post-democracy, says Ulrike Guérot. The solution: to turn Europe on its head. For the Europe of tomorrow is a European Republic, the embodiment of a transnational community. [Polish version added] [more]

02.05.2016


Robert Menasse

A brief history of the European future

Or, why we must earn our inheritance

The sooner Europe gets used to a future without the nation-state, the better, writes Robert Menasse. Amnesia about what the unification project originally meant is causing a catastrophic lack of imagination about where it is heading. [Catalan version added] [more]

23.11.2015


David Marcus, Roman Schmidt

Optimism of intellect

A conversation with David Marcus

Thanks to a new wave of small intellectual magazines, an infectious buzz has returned to public debate in the United States. Roman Schmidt talks to David Marcus who, as a new editor at "Dissent", is well placed to provide the lowdown what's driving this genuinely critical movement. [Catalan version added] [more]

20.08.2015


Alice Béja, Marc-Olivier Padis, Thomas Piketty

Dynamics of inequality

A conversation with Thomas Piketty

At the heart of every great democratic revolution there was a fiscal revolution, argues Thomas Piketty. And the same will be true of the future. Only a global register of financial assets and a progressive global tax on capital can keep global wealth concentration in check. [Catalan version added] [more]

14.01.2015


Claus Offe

Europe entrapped

Claus Offe opts for democracy over the logic of no alternative and a politics that fails to provide the electorate with choices. For therein lies the trap. Only more solidarity and more democracy can rescue the eurozone from the brink of collapse. [Polish version added] [more]

13.08.2014


Tom Van Imschoot

Literary perspectives: Flanders

Reality-check

In the last decade, Flemish fiction has stepped out of the shadow of its Dutch older sister, writes Tom Van Imschoot. One discernable trend is the turn from metafiction towards various forms of realism, be it the regional, the semi-autobiographical or the "virtual". [more]

12.06.2012


Per Wirtén

Where were you when Europe fell apart?

Too many Europeans have too long avoided the question of Europe, says Swedish writer Per Wirtén. To prevent the EU from turning into a "post-democratic regime of bureaucrats", intellectuals need to stop mumbling and take the fear of Europe seriously. [more]

10.04.2012


Tanja Petrovic

Thinking Europe without thinking

Neo-colonial discourse on and in the western Balkans

EU member states draw upon a reservoir of colonial discourse to assert superiority over the extra-European Other; western Balkan states compensate by turning the same discourse against neighbours lower down the ladder of EU accession, writes Tanja Petrovic. [Hungarian version added] [more]

19.08.2015


Michael R. Krätke

Misnomer Euro-crisis

The common "economic governance" being mooted in Berlin and Brussels indeed needs to happen, writes Michael Krätke. The crucial question, however, is what kind of policy the EU would operate. One thing is sure: the neoliberal course taken until now is unsustainable. [more]

29.06.2011


Silvia García Dauder, Nuria Gregori

Designing the margin of feasible bodies

Truths and binary oppositions in the construction of sexes-genders-sexualities

The controversy around the gender of South African athlete Caster Semenya is by no means unprecedented. As Silvía Garcia Dauder and Nuria Gregori write, the world of sport is a social microcosm that reveals much about assumptions concerning biological sex. [more]

28.09.2009


Les Back

Beaches and graveyards

Europe's haunted borders

"It is more arduous to honour the memory of the nameless than the renowned." The epigram on Walter Benjamin's memorial in Portbou, Catalonia, leads Les Back to reflect on the fate of the African migrants found dead on the coasts of Spain today. [more]

19.01.2009


Marc Hatzfeld

France: return to Babel

Resisting the norms of an over-regulated language is absolutely crucial, writes Marc Hatzfeld in a celebration of Babel and the true value of linguistic diversity: creative misunderstandings. [more]

18.08.2009


Daniel Gamper, Mercè Rius, Xavier Rupert de Ventós

"If I don't say what I think, what's the point of being mad?"

A conversation with Catalan philosopher Xavier Rubert de Ventós

"If my philosophy has been of any use to me, it's been to situate my monstrous condition within an order of general discourse." The Catalan philosopher and former MEP explains why he finds reactionaries more interesting than liberals and what he means by the "non-Fichtean ego". [more]

06.05.2008


Antoni Simon

The historical origins of anti-Catalanism

In order to understand modern Catalan nationalism, it is necessary to examine the emergence of "anti-Catalanism" in Castilian Spain during the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance. [more]

05.10.2007


E. Efe Çakmak, Andreas Huyssen, Susan Neiman

The Armenian genocide: Issues of responsibility and democracy

An interview with Susan Neiman and Andreas Huyssen

Intellectuals in Turkey advocating a public debate about the "Armenian issue" have been marginalized, penalized, and in the case of Hrant Dink, assassinated. Yet in any politics of memory in Turkey must be guided by the public sphere, argue Susan Neiman and Andreas Huyssen. [more]

30.07.2007


Vicenç Villatoro

Distorted vision

The imperviousness of the Castilian market to cultural output in Catalan

Catalan cultural products are seen as a political instrument rather than a response to genuine demand. As a result, it is easier for a Catalan author to get published in German or Dutch than in Castilian Spanish. [more]

31.05.2007


Zygmunt Bauman, Lukasz Galecki

The unwinnable war

An interview with Zygmunt Bauman

In the East, impoverished masses are lured into anti-Westernism; in the West, the State seeks to regain its legitimacy via the War on Terror. A vicious cycle of global insecurity is underway. [more]

30.04.2007


Jirí Pehe

The virtual frontiers of Europe

Are countries that adhere to Enlightenment values and institutional norms, but that are not geographically part of Europe, also to be considered European? [more]

19.03.2007


Orhan Pamuk

Neighbourhoods

Opening address at the 18th European Meeting of Cultural Journals

For Orhan Pamuk, "neighbourhood" implies openness to neighbouring cultures but also provincial mistrust. Cultural journals' role, he says, should be to encourage non-conformity. [more]

26.04.2007


Josep Lluís Barona

Science, democracy, and the global market

Conflicts within the technology sector are increasingly resolved by private "experts", while media coverage of science is tailored to the interests of industry. [more]

16.01.2007


Juli Peretó

Intelligent design and the assault on science

Biochemist Juli Peretó delivers a rebuke to the fallacies and dishonesties of the theory of intelligent design and examines the ambiguous attitude of the Catholic Church towards creationism. [more]
