The Council for European Studies (CES) at Columbia University invites proposal submissions for the 27th International Conference of Europeanists on the theme of Europe’s Past, Present, and Future: Utopias and Dystopias. The conference will be held at the University of Iceland on June 22-24, 2020.
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Council for European Studies, we reflect on the various ways in which Europe as a place, an idea, a people, an Empire, a utopia, and a dystopia has manifested itself. The year 2020 marks the moment for this reflection, given recent and ongoing changes in the boundaries of European citizenship, the fragile institutional arrangements of the European social model, the postcolonial analysis of Europe in the world, the population dynamics that define who is European, Europe’s changing relationships with other regions and parts of world society, including the Global South, and the configuration of global hegemony.
We invite proposals for panels, roundtables, book discussions, and individual papers on the study of Europe, including its various expansions and contractions over CES’ fifty-year history.
Proposals may be submitted from August 26-October 15, 2019. Priority will be given to panel submissions. Participants will be notified of the Program Committee’s decision by December 15, 2019. Information on how to submit proposals will be posted on the CES website.
