European peripheries: transdisciplinary perspectives

International workshop organised by Amelie Kutter and the Reconfigurations project at the Viadrina Institute of European Studies, European University Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder). The workshop investigates current trends of periphery-building in the European context. Contributions from political economy, sociology, political science, history, cultural and discourse studies provide conceptual orientation and empirical depth to peripheries as an emerging transdisciplinary research agenda.

Aktuelles Forschungsprojekt: Reconfigurations

Das Projekt ‚Reconfigurations of centre and periphery in the European Union: a discursive political study‘ untersucht, wie das Verhältnis von Zentrum und Peripherie in der EU seit der Krise neu definiert wird. Es wird von der Europäischen Kommission finanziert und von Amelie Kutter an der Europa-Universität Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder) geleitet.

Forschungsprojekt: Another legitimation crisis (2013-2014)

The Eurozone crisis and its management called into question the EU’s decision-making capacity and cast doubt on its responsiveness and accountability towards various groups’ and members’ demands. It also ruined the prospects for catch-up that poorer members of the European Union linked to membership and severely damaged the EU’s rationale of cohesion. The project investigates discursive struggles over the adequate management of the Eurozone crisis with regard to how they address the project of developmental catch-up and, thereby, redefine the centre and periphery. It is directed by Amelie Kutter at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder).
