Animal Rights Activism

Is queer really anti-identitarian? And how is it experienced at the European level? At queer festivals, activists, artists and participants come together to build new forms of sociability and practice their ideals through anti-binary and inclusive idioms of gender and sexuality. These ideals are moreover channelled through a series of organisational and cultural practices that aim at the emergence of queer as a collective identity. Through the study of festivals in Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Copenhagen, and Oslo, this book thoughtfully analyses the role of activist

Imams in Western Europe Developments, Transformations, and Institutional Challenges

As European Muslims and Muslims in the Middle East diverge, imams in Europe have emerged as major agents of religious authority who shape Islam’s presence in Western societies. This volume examines the theoretical and practical questions concerning the evolving role of imams in Europe. To what extent do imams act as intermediaries between European states and Muslim communities? Do states subsidise imam training? How does institutionalisation of Islam di�fer between European states?

Becoming a European Homegrown Jihadist A Multilevel Analysis of Involvement in the Dutch Hofstadgroup, 2002-2005

How and why do people become involved in European homegrown jihadism? This book addresses this question through an in-depth study of the Dutch Hofstadgroup, infamous for causing the murderer of filmmaker Theo van Gogh in 2004 and for plotting numerous other terrorist attacks. The Hofstadgroup o�fers a window into the broader phenomenon of homegrown jihadism that arose in Europe in 2004 and is still with us today. Utilising interviews with former Hofstadgroup participants and the extensive police files on the group, this book overcomes the scarcity of high-quality data that has beset the study of terrorism for decades. The book advances a multicausal and multilevel understanding of

involvement in European homegrown jihadism. It stresses that the factors that initiate involvement are separate from those that sustain it, which in turn are again likely to di�fer from those that bring some individuals to actual acts of terrorism. Bart Schuurman is an assistant professor at Leiden University's Institute of Security and Global Affairs.

Linguistic and Cultural Foreign Policies of European States

In exploring the birth of a Dutch identity between 1780 and 1830, this book integrates nationalism studies with literary and linguistic history by highlighting scholarly study of the Dutch language as a factor in the creation of the national identity. These early scholars promoted the Dutch language during a time of political upheaval, when citizens needed something to feel proud of. This book examines the impact individual agents had on a crucial stage in the Dutch nation-building process.

Towards a Decent Labour Market for Low Waged Migrant Workers

This anthology analyses low-wage migrant workers in Europe from many perspectives, including migration policies, human rights, economics, and more. Free movement of workers and services in the EU calls into question the extent to which the labour market and its institutions are able to counteract negative consequences, such as downward wage pressures and abuse of workers. These essays ��esh out the imbalances that unfairly disadvantage low-wage workers, shed light on their causes, and discuss possible solutions.

Understanding Culture A Handbook for Students in the Humanities

This textbook provides an innovative introduction to the study of culture from an international perspective. It examines culture as a dynamic term with meanings that change through time, o�fering the first long-term analysis of the relationship between culture and nature. It discusses various theories of culture present in the disciplines of history, literature, art, and popular culture. Due to this breadth and coherence, the book can be ��exibly and relevantly applied across many topics and could be used in a wide range of courses. Babette Hellemans teaches cultural history and medieval history at the University of Groningen.

“This much-needed and very welcome textbook excels at the challenging task of conveying the intricacies of theory in a crisp and accessible manner to the reader. Abundant in illuminating examples, it is a guide to culture in the best sense of the world: it provides a lasting inspiration for reflection (well after it has been read).” — Monika Baár, Professor in Cultural History and the History of Political Thought at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands August 2017 ISBN 9789089649911 e-ISBN 9789048530090 PB, 156 x 234 mm 180 pages, 20 b/w illustrations €24.95 / £28.50
