European Forum – a peer reviewed periodical published by the Institute for European Studies, Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland – is seeking contributors for its forthcoming edition.
The special issue will be dedicated to different perspectives of constructing Europe both by European and the outer narrators. Editors are particularly interested in juxtaposing European discourses (represented by e.g. European constitutionalists, political scientists, sociologists, media and communication researchers) with non-European points of view on one of the following topics:
• Politicians, media, elites and civil society – the narrators of Europe;
• Europeanization as political and social process;
• The disocurse of Europeanization as seen from inside and outside Europe;
• Representations of European identities; symbolic conflicts between identities;
• Transformation and social change in Europe;
• Political discourses of civil society and about civil society;
• Media discourses of European transformation and social change;
• Constitution for Europe – the project in the making;
• European leadership and its representations;
• Constitutionalisation of European public sphere;
• Axiology of public communication in Europe and America – European values, American values, democratic values;
• The democratic deficit in the context of Europe;
• Reassessing political legitimacy in Europe.
• Submissions should be written in English, edited in Microsoft Word and should not exceed 22 pages of regularly formatted type, or 8.500 words (including annotation text).
• Materials should include a summary in English, one page in length of regularly formatted type.
• Reviews, write-ups, polemics, and information should not exceed 11 pages of regularly formatted type.
