21st International Conference of Europeanists (CES) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Coun­cil for Euro­pean Stud­ies at Colum­bia Uni­ver­sity is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 21st Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence of Euro­peanists, held March 14 – 16, 2014 in Wash­ing­ton D.C, United States.

    Con­fer­ence Theme: “Ressurections“

    In the wake of cri­sis in Europe, bits and pieces of the past are being res­ur­rected as a means of under­stand­ing the present and imag­in­ing the future. His­tor­i­cal fig­ures are re-​evaluated and held out as mod­els, once-​dismissed ide­olo­gies reap­pear as pos­si­bil­i­ties or as bogey­men, myths and sym­bols from the past crop up in new pro­duc­tions, and old polit­i­cal and eco­nomic insti­tu­tions are revived as alter­na­tives for action. But res­ur­rec­tions are not sim­ply about nos­tal­gia, and they aren’t just a restora­tion of the past in unchanged form. Res­ur­rec­tions neces­si­tate fun­da­men­tal trans­for­ma­tions: insert­ing old things into new con­texts, chang­ing their natures, and assign­ing them new mean­ings and values.

    For the 21st Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence of Euro­peanists, we wel­come papers that relate to the theme of “resurrections.”

    • What ele­ments of Europe’s past, and present, are amenable to reanimation?
    • How do they work in con­tem­po­rary debate, and how is their rel­e­vance to the present disputed?
    • What is the process through which they are revived and how are they changed as they are brought back to life or com­bined with new elements?

    Sub­mis­sion and Participation

    For the 2014 con­fer­ence, the Coun­cil for Euro­pean Stud­ies (CES) wel­comes pro­pos­als for pan­els, round­ta­bles, book dis­cus­sions and indi­vid­ual papers on the study of Europe broadly defined. We encour­age pro­pos­als in the widest range of dis­ci­plines; in par­tic­u­lar, we wel­come pan­els that com­bine dis­ci­plines, nation­al­i­ties, and gen­er­a­tions. Although it is not manda­tory that papers be related to the con­fer­ence theme, papers that do so are espe­cially wel­come. The Com­mit­tee will accept only two sub­mis­sions per per­son as atten­dees may only present in a max­i­mum of two sessions.

    We strongly encour­age par­tic­i­pants to sub­mit their pro­pos­als as part of an orga­nized panel. Full panel pro­pos­als will be given top pri­or­ity in the selec­tion process by the Pro­gram Com­mit­tee. Par­tic­i­pants may find it use­ful to con­nect with like-​minded schol­ars through the grow­ing num­ber of CES Research Net­works.
