Some might say that two months is an awfully long time between each issue of hidden europe. But our regular e-news, for which you may register for free on our website at www.hiddeneurope.co.uk, offers a small dose of hidden europe between issues.
In the next issue, we shall consider festivals and how they shape our view of contemporary Europe - from Saturnalia and Carnevale to the contrived escapism of modern folkloristic parades. We shall take a look, too, at what constitutes a country. Language, currency, postage stamps, or is it more a matter of ethnicity? Touchy questions, but timely perhaps, with the Kosovo question now firmly back on the international agenda. hidden europe 14 will be published on Monday 7 May.
