Anamaria Dutceac SegestenSenior Lecturer


My current research has several orientations. One of them deals with memory conflicts in Europe after 1989. More concretely I want to study if the EU acts as a memory actor and how the EU defines the consequences of memory conflicts for integration. I am a member of the Nordic research network "Towards a Common Past?" and I have been part of a team that,under the leadership of Professor Barbara Törnquist-Plewa, formulated and wrote a grant proposal to the EC within the framework of the FP-7.
I also do research in the field of communication policy and political symbols. I am intersted in which graphic symbols have been developed by the EU in order to reach out and win over EU citizens. I also want to know how these citizens have received and interpreted these graphical symbolic message.
Other research interests at the moment encompass the relationship between literature/film and politicis in Romania, as well as the connection between religion and nationalism in secularized (or post-secular) societies such as Sweden.
