The Rhetoric of Europeanness: Expressions of Collective European Identification in Finland’s Swedish-Language Press

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikelVetenskapligPeer review


This working paper seeks to develop an understanding of Europe as a reality-structuring cognitive category – a shared mode of understanding human reality. By drawing upon empirical insights from a recent media debate in which the notions “Europe” and “Islam” were placed in open conflict, we seek to stress that Europe, like the nation, is not a “real” entity possessing a fixed substance per se; but is rather a practical category or contingent event.
