How will European Union enlargement and Europe's increasing diversity affect scholarship, publishing, and libraries? Speakers will address these issues, the EU approach to European identitites, and the social construction of political authority in the EU. Time for questions and discussion will follow.
 
Today, fifty years after the Treaty of Rome, the European Union's diverse constituency includes residents of 27 member states.  Who -- and what -- is European?  Identity issues challenge governance and feature in politics and popular discourse even in non-member states.
