    [From the introduction] My research is focused on Poland’s accession to the European Union, the negotiations for which began in 1997 and culminated in 2004. Poland’s accession to the EU imposed both a new institutional context within which the formal/legal aspects of national identity must be constituted, and introduced a new strand into the already complex braid of intersecting elements that constitute national subjects. European integration, or "becoming European," entails a cultural dimension of transformation that is not only undertheorized in the existing literature, but is also downplayed in the policy environment itself. The transfer of gender equality policy from the EU to member states is a case in point.
