Re-placing Europe: an ethnological perspective on frontiers and migrants

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

As with other cultural constructs, any historical concept or representation of Europe will only hold if you accept its premises (Borgolte 2005: 124), and the premises on which various ideas of ‘Europe’ had been founded have been increasingly called into question (Kockel 2010), not least for being ‘Eurocentric’.
