The CoHERE project seeks to identify and understand European heritages (engaging with their socio-political and cultural significance) and their potential for developing communitarian identities.
"Who is Europe?" is the project's final conference, held on 22-23 Novembre in Warsaw and hosted by POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
Critical Heritages: performing and representing identities in Europe (CoHERE) addresses an apparently intensifying EU crisis through a study of relations between identities and representations and performances of the past. It explores the ways in which heritages can be used for division and isolation, or to find a common ground. The project aims to propose governmental, institutional and educational strategies that would respond, on the basis of dialogue between different narrations and memories, to the crisis of European identity.
CoHERE is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, analyses differing productions and meanings of the European past in the present.
