Call for Papers: Council for European Studies International Conference

Call for Papers

Council for European Studies
Seventeenth International Conference
Montreal, Canada
April 15-17, 2010

A recent crisis of confidence has unsettled paradigms for economic, social and political governance: political identities, social allegiances, parameters of markets, cultural truisms, and religious truths are all in flux. Europe has long served as a model for the rest of the world - whether as object of admiration, forced exemplar, foil, or cautionary tale - and the present vacuum of certainty presents yet another moment of opportunity for scholars of "the old world." Are European experiments in economic coordination the solution to the excesses of unregulated capitalism - is this the moment for the revenge of the European model?

For the 2010 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. The Committee will accept only two submissions per person. Members may also participate in a maximum of two sessions.

The Council for European Studies fosters and recognizes outstanding, multidisciplinary research in European studies through a range of programs, including conferences, publications, special events, and awards. The Council's international conferences bring together scholars from a multitude of countries and a variety of fields for discussion and interdisciplinary exchange.

Proposals may be submitted from August 1 to October 15, 2009 via the URL:
