    ‘The Struggle for Europe’


    Andrijasevic, R, 2014, ‘‘The Struggle for Europe’’. in: B Blaagaard, I Van der Tuin (eds) The Subject of Rosi Braidotti: Politics and Concepts. Bloomsbury, pp. 208-213


    Th is chapter presents Braidotti ’ s work and engagement with issues of European
    identity, citizenship, and democracy. Against the grain, Braidotti does not privilege
    rights but rather the matter on imagination in the eff ort to reconstruct a Europe void
    of nationalist ambitions and exclusionary tendencies. Th e imaginary in question is, on
    the one hand, postnationalist and fi rmly grounded in the Union ’ s anti-fascist political and intellectual origins and, on the other, feminist in that it is embedded in a critique of the unitary (white and male) subject. Such an imaginary would, for Braidotti, shift the ways in which relations are territorialized by decentering Europe from its position of cultural dominance and overcoming the dualism between the self and the other upon which exclusions and racism are based.
