In the study of European politics and society ever-greater importance is attached to the role of ideational factors such as identity and discourse. The editor brings together specialists from critical discourse analysis and critical approaches to communications, history, literature, cultural studies, media, sociology, politics and International Relations to discuss the discursive construction of ethnic, national and regional identities and analyse how specific identity discourses condition and constrain knowledge and action with regard to various socio-political issues in Europe.
RICHARD C. M. MOLE is Lecturer in the Politics of Central Europe at the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies, UK. Prior to taking up this lectureship, he was a Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow at UCL. He is author of the forthcoming The Baltic States. From the Soviet Union to the European Union.
