(En)countering Europe as Global, Othered & Transperipheral Voices
We are an independent research network for graduate and early career researchers working on EU/Europe outside the main disciplinary currents of European Studies. EUROGLOT suggests ‘speaking’ about Europe, albeit differently: by amplifying global, othered, and peripheralised voices.
To this end, we gesture to ongoing conversations around decentring, decolonising, and diversifying how we come to speak about Europe and its many entanglements in the social and political world. As such, we welcome all researchers interested in anti/de/neo/post-colonial, critical, feminist, indigenous, interpretive, Global East, Global South, non-Eurocentric, intersectional, queer, and other heterodox perspectives on Europe, broadly understood.
As immigrant, racialised, othered, and historically marginalised academics, we know too well how (en)countering Europe from the outskirts, both in a spatial and geopolitical sense, often proves to be an alienating endeavour. Through EUROGLOT, we aim to create a kind of ‘transperipheral’ opening where we can learn from each other across peripheries and jointly, among others:
- discuss our projects together as peers
- question what counts as canon
- share our lived experiences in the academe and beyond
- co-organise conference panels, lectures, methodological workshops, reading groups, and so on.
This initiative is convened by Szilvia Nagy and Antonio Salvador M. Alcazar III. If you are interested in joining this network, please sign up here.
OUR READING GROUP USUALLY RUNS ON THE LAST WEDNESDAY EVENING EACH MONTH (CET).
