This project aims at establishing an international platform for developing research into new forms of conceptualizing Europe from a multidisciplinary perspective engaging several disciplines (literary, media, gender studies) in the Humanities and the Social Sciences (sociology, political theory). PEN aims to develop theoretical and methodological tools for representing and imagining Europe in a postcolonial and postimperial perspective. The PEN international research network builds up on the activities of the previously funded AHRC network on Postcolonial Europe (2008-2010).
