Milking the EU cash cow

"Dublin Review of Books" says contagion of nationalism and xenophobia not restricted to central Europe; "Kultura Liberalna" speaks to Wolfgang Streeck about the future of the European peace project; in "openDemocracy", Cas Mudde considers EU sanctions against both Poland and Hungary; "Esprit" looks at how violence spreads in a globalized world; "Res Publica Nowa" analyses banker's madness; "Kulturos barai" sees straight through the misleading trade-off between security and freedom; "L'Homme" revisits gendered images in Cold War visual culture; and "Genero" looks to playwrights Oliver Frljic and Dino Mustafic for an antidote to Yugonostalgia.

Saskia Sassen

Interactions of the technical and the social

Digital formations of the powerful and the powerless

Saskia Sassen compares the impact of two kinds of socio-technical formations on the public sphere: electronic capitalist elites based in global cities and globally networked, local social activist movements. Both have the power to transform existing political and economic systems. [more]

Nilüfer Göle

Islam's disruptive visibility in the European public sphere

Political stakes and theoretical issues

Contemporary Islam in Europe, its modes of public expression and the visibility of associated religious signs and symbols are all much discussed in the European public sphere. But, writes Nilüfer Göle, religious agency itself remains a blind spot in the current debate. [English version added] [more]

Claus Leggewie

Transnational citizenship

Ideals and European realities

It is time for social science and political actors to acknowledge a paradigm shift from international to transnational relations, writes Claus Leggewie. For a new form of world politics is emerging, based on citizenship (and governance) beyond the nation-state. [more]

Jan-Werner Müller

The failure of European intellectuals?

Intellectuals have been accused of failing to restore a European confidence undermined by crisis. Yet calls for legitimating European narratives reflect the logic of nineteenth-century nation building, argues Jan-Werner Müller. [French, German and Italian versions added] [more]

Arne Ruth

Myths of neutrality

Ignoring the Holocaust in Sweden and Switzerland

In Sweden and Switzerland, complicity in the Holocaust was for a long time ignored. It was only as a result of foreign publicity that national myths of neutrality gave way to admissions of responsibility, writes Arne Ruth. [more]

Josette Larue-Tondeur

Opposed biblical translations

Biblical language is poetic and elliptical, replete with anagrams, alliteration and wordplay. Rather than treating figurative language as a problem, translations of the Bible need to embrace it as bearer of religious and spiritual meaning, writes Josette Larue-Tondeur. [more]

Hillel Schlegel

Events marketing and design in the present day

Little mythologies of mass technology

The convergence of technology means that the form taken by devices is no longer dictated by function. The device becomes pure interface, a social marker without concern for the feature. The result is a jumble of designs, devoid of any meaning beyond that ascribed by advertising. [more]

Carole Dely

The perchance of a coming of the otherwoman

Questions surrounding woman, women, gender, or even sexual difference represent an obstacle at the heart of Derrida's deconstructive work. His writing opens up for the possibility of the reorientation of discourse, history, and tradition itself. [more]

Antonin J. Liehm, Roman Schmidt

Encyclopaedist of the international

Antonin J. Liehm, editor of the Czech magazine Litérarní noviny until 1968 and founder of Lettre Internationale, has been at the forefront of numerous attacks on the "provincialism of major cultures". One theme has persisted throughout: the idea of an international magazine. [more]

Jana Truhlarova

Remarks on the translation of works of French literary theory into Slovak

"Classic" works of French literary theory of the 1960s to the 1980s have been translated into eastern European languages with a delay of decades. Can general observations be made about the transfer from one cultural space to another? [more]

Niels Planel

Let the decolonization of literature commence!

The condescension shown by the French literary establishment towards francophone literature from the former colonies may have become a thing of the past. A emergent literature in French that reflects globalization spells the end for French autofiction, writes Niels Planel. [more]

Chris Reynolds

May '68: a contested history

Despite the tendency of decennial commemorations to cement the "official version" of May '68, important questions remain unanswered. Chris Reynolds points out some blind spots in the increasingly stereotyped interpretation of the events in France forty years ago. [more]

André Schiffrin

Controlling words

Press and publishing concentration in France is exceptionally high yet there is barely any protest from within the sector itself. Media monopolization is by no means only a French issue, however: throughout Europe and the US, profit has become publishing's bottom line. [more]

Gérard Wormser

Violence and history

Violence is a relationship, not a "thing"; nor does it submit to typologies. Nevertheless, that does not mean that violence cannot be studied and its present-day occurrences located, writes Gérard Wormser. The exercise of imagined history is probably one of the best antidotes to violence. [more]
