Event "Fictions of Europe" (28-29 March 2019)

Project Details


This international conference, jointly organized by VUB, UA and KUL, explores how Europe is imagined in contemporary literature, theatre, and film, both within and beyond Europe's ever-shifting borders. Rather than concentrate on representations of Europe as seen through European eyes only, the conference wishes to draw attention to the manifold ways in which the idea of Europe has inspired artists from across the globe. In addition, it is particularly interested in how ongoing processes of European integration, non-European migration as well as regionalism and decentralization within Europe have diversified artistic articulations about Europe.
