The Council for European Studies (CES) at Columbia University invites proposal submissions for the 24th International Conference of Europeanists on the theme of Sustainability and Transformation. The conference will be held at the University of Glasgow on July 12-14, 2017.
Questions about the sustainability of European political economies, social solidarity, party systems, values, and the project of European integration abound. With the British voting to leave the European Union, and powerful political forces in other member states pressing for similar moves, the future of the EU is on the line. Many argue: if Europe is to reinvigorate its economy, society, politics, and culture, transformations are necessary.
We invite panels and proposals that investigate the transformations Europe currently faces, as well as the major changes required to respond to them. We also invite panels and proposals that investigate the sustainability of current European policies, dynamics, and an integrated Europe, as well as proposals that explore ways political actors can promote or damage sustainability.
The proposal deadline has been extended to October 16, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST. Priority will be given to panel submissions. Participants will be notified of the Program Committee’s decision by January 9, 2017. Information on how to submit proposals will be posted on the CES website.
