With my study ‘European public sphere and internet – self-image and function of pan-European online newspapers exemplified on cafebabel.com’, I find out which sites are available on the web, addressing their news coverage of Europe and the EU explicitly to European public. The structure, themes, users, self-concept and function of cafebabel.com are analysed as an example of pan-European websites.
How do pan-European websites contribute to the development of a European public sphere?
Babelians: why are pan-European websites – especially cafebabel.com – important in the European public sphere you share?
