Signifying Europeav Johan Fornas309
Signifying Europe provides a systematic overview of the wide range of symbols used to represent Europe and Europeanness, both by the political elite and the broader public. Through a critical interpretation of the meanings of the various symbols--and their often contradictory or ambiguous dimensions--Johan Fornas uncovers illuminating insights into how Europe currently identifies itself and is identified by others outside its borders. While the focus is on the European Union's symbols, those symbols are also interpreted in relation to other symbols of Europe. Offering insight into the cultural dimensions of European unification, this volume will appeal to students, scholars, and politicians interested in European policy issues, cultural studies, and postnational cultural identity.

'Signifying urope' can appeal to different sets of audiences, ranging from scholars and students to readers less familiar with the topics it explores, due to its rich and accessible content, which skilfully summarises and further develops existing research, while it ruminates about the signifying processes linked to the EU symbols' 'In Signifying Europe, Johan Forns, professor of Media and Communication Studies at Sdertrn University, Sweden, and author of the 2007 classic Consuming Media: Communication, Shopping and Everyday Life, offers a systematic overview of the symbols used to represent Europe and Europeanness. Since his aim is to reveal the cultural dimensions of European unification, he focuses on EU symbols and how they relate to other European symbols. His well-documented [...] work, is an important contribution to the study of the European Union.'
