Call for Papers

The 9th International Conference
‘Europe Inside-Out: Europe and Europeanness Exposed to Plural Observers’

31st of May – 1st of June 2019, Dublin, Ireland



Conference Description

Europe became in the 20th century an elaborated yet contested notion as the particular field of European studies emerged while extensive and diverse research was directed recently towards an intensified search for what Europe is about. The creation of the European Union made things even more specialized and increased the stake of methodological rigor as more and more Europeans are affected by the decisions taken in Brussels. The number, diversity and quality of research projects focused on European issues is unprecedented, yet, as it is usually the case with specialization, it gradually led to discursive communities that rarely meet and debate their approaches in open floors together with peers from other continents, academic traditions and cultures. It is the aim of this conference to build a bridge among specialists from different regions, academic traditions and cultures that share a common interest in studying and addressing Europe as a reflexive concern.

The 9th International Conference ‘Europe Inside-Out: Europe and Europeanness Exposed to Plural Observers’ aims exactly to refresh a broader approach and understanding of Europe by enlarging the platform of regular conferences and workshops for a wider arena of participants and disciplinary backgrounds in order to put on stage a worldwide monadology for such concerns. The conference aims also to enable critical alternatives to the disciplinary orthodoxies by creating a framework for interaction and dissemination of diversity that has to become once more a European trademark.

What is Europe and its place in the world? Is there something particular that sedimented in time and through a controversial history a European way? How does Europe see itself and how do others see it? Is Europe inclusive or club-based exclusive? Is Europe becoming a normative power or just envisages itself as one? Is the European multiculturalism a fact or an ideal? Is the European Union a reflection of Europe or an appropriation of it? Is Europe becoming a post-national cosmopolitan order or a persisting community of national states? How does the current US political context challenges Europe? Is the EU able to resist the rise of populist and nationalist movements? What are the implications of Brexit? These are just few questions out of an enormous space for inquiry that are to be addressed and confronted within the topic of the conference. Join us!

The conference is organized yet by no means restricted to the following tentative panels:

Theorizing Europe: Thinking Europe and Europeanness ~ Europe as would be world power ~ Europe and its internal and external others/outsiders ~ Europe and identities ~ Fortress Europe? ~ EU and appropriations of Europe ~ Europe and the Mediterranean assortment ~ Europe and the inclusive/exclusive nexus ~ Europe and the US ~ Europe and anti-Americanism ~ Europe as seen from its Eastern neighbors ~ Europe as viewed from far away: narratives of the Europeans outside ~ Europe as viewed from Asia ~ Europe and Africa ~ Non-familiar faces of Europe ~ Knowing Europe in a different way: from Latin America to Australia ~ Europe and the EU as a normative power ~ EU regulatory practices in context ~ The multiple faces of Europeanization as a process ~ Europe and the persistence of the East-West Slope ~ Europe and crises ~ Europe and cosmopolitanism ~ Europe and the post-national orders ~ Europe in the world ~ European narratives of the past: the mnemonic/amnesic nexuses ~ Europeanization versus globalization ~ Europe and conflict resolution ~ European social models: welfare states and neoliberal suspicions ~ Europe and innovation ~ The politicization of Europe ~ Europe and the Trump ‘Era’ ~ Assessments of the European security ~ Implications of Brexit
