Contemporary politics of belonging and questions of social inclusion remain central to some of the most difficult and enduring debates not only within Europe but also sites fundamentally affected by European imperialism, or what we refer to here as "Europe in the world." Multi-cultural and multi-ethnic differentiation and tensions, intersecting forms of exclusion, and multilateral contestations have come to operate as modalities of lived experience through which belonging continues to be constituted, embodied, inhabited, and transformed globally. Who belongs to a society, and on what are belonging and inclusion predicated? How have socio-cultural processes, varying technologies, and intersecting practices of social division and hierarchies articulated belonging and inclusion? Through this mini-symposium-comprised of two panels and a film screening-we explore from multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives these and other questions in a variety of contexts in Europe and regions fundamentally fashioned by European power, politics, and practices.
