My name is Christian and I’m engaged in DiEM.
I thought about sharing a list of political concepts, essays, speeches etc. all related to the idea of establishing a “New Europe”.
My intention on the one hand is to get feedback on it, by people who are interested or even more qualified than I am (any historians or political scientists, who btw know about the european “Ideengeschichte”? out there?) On the other hand I think it may not be well know just how much you can find about this and therefore interesting for others. The list is somewhat subjective and probably not meeting scientific standards (for example concerning the criteria of my selection). Think of it as artistic research, as it’s meant to be part of an exhibition where, as a counterpart, photos that I made in Czech Republic are involved.
The documents I upload are in english and german/english (mixed). I haven’t got the time right now to deliver more translations. Please mind that it’s work in progress and thus may contain typos (typing errors), translation errors etc.
Questions I have would be:
- does the selection somehow make sense?
- which part could be left out ? (I need to break it down a bit, although it’s all excerpts…)
- do you discover factual errors: dates, names, sources etc.
- do you have things to add?
- do you have any commentaries, thoughts or questions?
I will continue to work on this and would be willing to share the final list, when it’s possible.
Thanks for your attention!
