The Spinoza Conference 2016 entitled “Europe. Youth, culture and means of transport”, given by the Spanish writer Alicia Giménez Bartlett, focuses on the formation of today’s Europe from the point of view of youth culture. In the last fifty years the relationship between young Europeans has changed profoundly. What expectations do young people have today? What forms does the European identity crisis take? How does it affect the market, literature and creation?

It is organised by the Spanish Embassy in The Hague, the Cervantes Institute in Utrecht, and the University of Amsterdam with the collaboration and support of ASCA (Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis).
