'Feeling European'. The Visual Construction of EU Identity.

Objective

European Visual Identity - Summary

This project uses virtual ethnography and semiotic deconstruction to critically investigate how the formation of a European identity is reliant upon political symbols with which EU citizens can emotionally identify, and suggests directions for reforming the Union’s ‘symbolic capital’1 to encourage greater citizen affiliation with the EU.
