CFP: SDAW/Foundation German-American Academic Relations

Deadline: March 31, 2014

“Stiftung Deutsch Amerikanische Wissenschaftsbeziehungen” (SDAW/Foundation German-American Academic Relations) has just issued its “Call for Proposals 2014”. SDAW is prepared to fund research groups composed of German and North American scholars, and, where appropriate, other European scholars, who propose to explore topics of particular relevance to the transatlantic relationship. Research projects may focus on international or domestic topics; comparisons with cases outside the US European context are welcome, as are proposals that seek to open up new methodological approaches.

Please find our CfP enclosed and/or online at

http://stiftung.stifterverband.info/t260/sdaw2014_call_for_proposals.pdf

and accordingly

http://www.sdaw.net.

We would very much appreciate it if you could bring this “Call” to the attention of scholars from both sides of the Atlantic.

CFP: 2014 International Conference of Europeanists

Proposals may be submitted from August 15 to October 1, 2013. Participants will be notified of the Committee’s decisions by December 4, 2013.

21st International Conference of Europeanists “Resurrections”
Washington, D.C., USA • March 14-16, 2014

Organized by the Council for European Studies

In the wake of crisis in Europe, bits and pieces of the past are being resurrected as a means of understanding the present and imagining the future. Historical figures are re-evaluated and held out as models, once-dismissed ideologies reappear as possibilities or as bogeymen, myths and symbols from the past crop up in new productions, and old political and economic institutions are revived as alternatives for action. But resurrections are not simply about nostalgia, and they aren’t just a restoration of the past in unchanged form. Resurrections necessitate fundamental transformations: inserting old things into new contexts, changing their natures, and assigning them new meanings and values. For the 21st International Conference of Europeanists, we welcome papers that relate to the theme of “resurrections.” What elements of Europe’s past, and present, are amenable to reanimation? How do they work in contemporary debate, and how is their relevance to the present disputed? What is the process through which they are revived and how are they changed as they are brought back to life or combined with new elements?

For the 2014 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. Although it is not mandatory that papers be related to the conference theme, papers that do so are especially welcome. The Committee will accept only two submissions per person as attendees may only present in a maximum of two sessions.

We strongly encourage participants to submit their proposals as part of an organized panel. Full panel proposals will be given top priority in the selection process by the Program Committee. Participants may find it useful to connect with like-minded scholars through the growing number of CES Research Networks.
