Culture, Practice and Europeanization Annual Editorial Board Meeting 2017

The editorial board of Culture, Practice and Europeanization (CPE) – formerly known as Culture, Practice and European Policy – met on Friday the 16th June for their 2017 annual meeting. Both editors of the journal, Monika Eigmüller (Europa-Universität Flensburg) and Klarissa Lueg (Syddansk Universitet), were joined by associate editors Sebastian Büttner (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg), Iris Rittenhofer (Aarhus Universitet) and Christof Roos (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), although unfortunately, fellow associate editor Daniel Maul (Universitetet i Oslo) was unable to attend the event.

A truly European board, consisting of editors from Belgium, Denmark, Norway and Germany assembled in Flensburg, where the journal is based in the University’s sociology department. The journal is further supported by a distinguished, international Advisory Board consisting of Hauke Brunkhorst (Europa-Universität Flensburg), Alison Woodward (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Arnaud Lechevalier (Université Paris 1) and Georg Vobruba (Universität Leipzig).

The board members discussed the future direction of the journal. One such suggestion that was adopted was the renaming of the journal to: Culture, Practice and Europeanization; to best reflect the joint focus and interests of the board members. Additionally, the decision was made to increase publication of the journal from twice a year to three times a year. Of these three yearly publications, it was decided that two shall pertain to a certain key theme, whilst there will also be an annual open themed issue.

CPE, now embarking upon its forthcoming third issue (Vol. 2 No. 2) has released that its next special issue shall focus upon the theme of "sustainability" and shall be published this summer. The following edition of Vol. 2 No. 3 shall be available in December and will have an open theme. Access to the journal’s previous two editions is available through its website for anyone interested in the issues of Europeanization as it is open source published.
