The conference will be held at the University of Iceland on June 27-29, 2023. The theme of the conference is Europe’s Past, Present, and Future: Utopias and Dystopias.
Amidst war in Europe and the global COVID-19 crisis, Iceland provides the ideal place for such reflection, given its centrality to trans-Atlantic space, a core concept to the founders of CES. It arguably represents a utopia of the European social model, and yet, at the same time, the dystopian heart of the financial crisis in 2008, and the liminal tension of Cold War politics, now resurgent in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
On the 28th June,Özgür Özvatan, Rami Ali and Linda Walter from project D:Islam will present on "The Narrative Foundations of Radicalization and De-Radicalization: Comparing Online Discursive Spaces of Islamist Radicalization and Counter-Radicalization" (11:00 AM to 12:45 PM - Room VHV-107).
On the 29th June, Anna-Maria Meuth and Liriam Sponholz from project RaMi will give a presentation about "On the Dissemination and Significance of Threat Narratives about Muslim Migration Processes in Media Debates on Islam" (2:00 PM to 3:45 PM - Room HT-103).
