Frank Schipper & Johan Schot, a.o. (2011). Infrastructural Europeanism, or the Project of Building Europe on Infrastructures

Frank Schipper and Johan Schot organized the concept and contents of a special issue of History and Technology about 'Infrastructural Europeanism, or the Project of Building Europe on Infrastructures'.

The concept of infrastructural Europeanism is used to investigate the co-construction of Europe and infrastructures. Contributions to this special issue do not only demonstrate that different Europes were constructed at the same time, but also that Europe was not always an implicit ideal. All articles contribute to understanding infrastructural Europe through the lens of institutions, mostly international organizations. The introduction provides the following periodization of Infrastructural Europeanism:

1. Implicit infrastructural Europeanism, 1815–1921

2. Experimental infrastructural Europeanism, 1921–47

3. Explicit infrastructural West-Europeanism, 1947–92

4. Enlarged infrastructural Europeanism meets globalization, from 1992
