Research in Euroculture
Our Euroculture staff conducts various research projects in the interdisciplinary field of Euroculture, also within larger projects with the partner universities of the consortium.

Articles from Euroculture scholars and keynote speakers (among which Dr. Janny de Jong, UG) that were presented at the Intensive Programme 2012 at the University of Deusto (Spain) have been published.
First book in Euroculture Studies published in May 2013
"Europe – Space for transcultural Existence" is the first of a new series of publications “Studies in Euroculture” . The book is jointly edited by Janny de Jong and Margriet van der Waal (Groningen) and Martin Tamcke and Lars Klein (Göttingen). The publisher is Göttingen University Press.
The articles in this publication explore different dimensions of the field of Euroculture: it includes topics such as cosmopolitanism, cultural memory and traumatic past(s), colonial heritage, democratization and Europeanization as well as the concept of (European) identity in various disciplinary contexts such as law and the social sciences.
The book is available in print and as online publication.
During the master's programme students acquire knowledge in the Euroculture field of research and conduct their own research. These research projects are integrated in the methodology course, the research seminars as well as the master's thesis. Students opting for the Research Track will be trained in writing a PhD application (Eurocompetence III).
The department encourages students to participate in many conferences and symposia in the area of Euroculture and European Studies. The Programme's own main event is the Intensive Programme, a 7-day summer school where all students present their own papers. Since the 2010 IP, the best students papers have been published annually.
These publications can be found under Euroculture consortium publications at the University of Groningen website.
Examples of Euroculture MA theses can be found in the Euroculture thesis repository.
