EASA Biennial Conference 2018
Nationalism Old and New: Europe, Australia and Their Others
Wednesday 17 to Friday 19 January 2018
hosted by
The Australian Studies Centre Barcelona
For the European Association for Studies of Australia
Faculty of Letters, University of Barcelona
Downtown Historical Building, Plaça d’Universitat

Europe is uncomfortably enmeshed in what is commonly perceived as a fight for social, political and cultural survival in the face of the increasing international circulation of capital and labour, the postcolonial aftermath of Empire and the growing, transnational impact of climate change—in short, the multifarious expressions of unstoppable globalisation.

As a European settler nation in a globalising world, Australia may function as Europe’s antipodean mirror image, given its long track record of imposing an exclusionary identity, discrete essentialist binaries and forbidding borders, which have kept the make-up of its population largely European.

Join us in Barcelona for the EASA 2018 Conference.
