Reminder, EASA2018

Dear all,


This is to remind you of the CFP for the next EASA Biennial Conference in Barcelona, which will take place from Wed 17 to Fri 19 January 2018. It will address the new forms of nationalism, immigration and xenophobia in Europe and how they can be linked to the Australian case. What are the politics of inclusion and exclusion like these days?
