22ND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF EUROPEANISTS. CONTRADICTIONS: ENVISIONING EUROPEAN FUTURES
8 – 10 July 2015, Paris
In many historical moments, Europe’s futures have seemed not simply open and uncertain, but replete with contradiction. In the contemporary juncture, the responses both of ordinary Europeans and of the continent’s collective actors and institutions to the challenges posed by crisis again constitute a series of contradictions – many of which reiterate large questions from Europe’s past, while also impinging upon the ability of social forces to imagine possible futures.
Proposals for panels, roundtables, book discussions and individual papers that examine such opposing tendencies and, facing forward, consider the many potential futures emerging from the European crisis. Proposals in the widest range of disciplines, and, in particular, proposals that combine disciplines, nationalities and generations are encouraged. Proposals may be submitted from 18 August to 10 October 2014.
