A Year of Blogging on Environmental Europe

Published on by

Buzzing with fresh ideas on how to make our voices heard beyond the infamous academic ‘Ivory Tower’ after a UACES Student Forum Seminar in London in autumn 2013 and a course on social media at the University of East Anglia (UEA), we decided to set up this blog as a joint project. Given that it’s […]

Politicians abandon English for Ukipish

Published on by

At this week’s by-election in Rochester and Strood the language of politics has once again turned to fear of immigration.  But is it right to blame immigrants who are not the cause of our problems?  Why have leading politicians allowed Ukip to dominate the agenda, rather than saying, “We reject your scapegoating”?

On New Year’s Eve last year, the Daily Mail […]

A country called Europe?

Published on by

The designers of a new ‘social atlas of Europe’ hope it will help Europeans to view their continent as their homeland.  The maps below look at Europe in a different way to usual cartography – they are part of a collection of ‘social maps’ of Europe being launched at the Royal Geographical Society on Wednesday […]

What can we learn from the history of the Wirtschaftswunder?

Published on by

The recovery of Germany after the Second World War is often referred to as the Wirtschaftswunder or economic miracle. The rebuilding of Germany was not just a matter of rebuilding the towns and cities that had been devastated during the war, but also the rebuilding of the country’s economy as well as its reputation after […]

When researchers reach out and engage with the public in a dialogue

Published on by

Whilst most of Europe is analysing the latest EP election results and journalists are calling academics for an expert assessment, this blog post will take a slightly different perspective and instead focus on how we – academics/researchers – engage the public in a dialogue about for example the EU. Research dissemination has become a central […]
