Re/Presenting Europe: Popular representations of diversity and belonging

The new project ‘Re/Presenting Europe: Popular representations of diversity and belonging’ is a collaboration between several universities and societal and grassroot organizations in the Netherlands, Curaçao and Sint Maarten.

The full project consists of five linked working groups that will address dominant spaces of representation of belonging, both in the formal institutional space of education and healing, as well as informal spaces of sports, popular culture, and urban arts.

The goal of the project is to come to a more inclusive understanding of Europe.


The project is funded by NWO (Dutch Research Council) within the Dutch Research Agenda (Nationale Wetenschapsagenda NWA).
