Elena Kaliberda, PhD candidate in Communication, presented a paper at the 25th International Conference of Europeanists this March.
Kaliberda’s paper — “Public Sphere: The EU Multicultural Policy. Do the Migrants Count?” — was featured as part of a panel on the effects of traditional and social media on politics.
The paper considers the development of multicultural policy and migrant radio in Canada and the EU, and examines the extension of Habermas’ original public sphere theory to small-scale mediated public spheres.
Held in Chicago, this year’s International Conference of Europeanists attracted around 600 participants from European and American universities.
The conference theme was “Europe and the World: Mobilities, Values and Citizenship.”
While attending, Kaliberda was able to meet Dr. Craig Calhoun, president of the Los Angeles-based Berggruen Institute and editor of the 1992 volume Habermas and the Public Sphere. At the conference, Dr. Calhoun delivered a keynote address on “Populism, Nationalism, and the Fate of Democracy.”
