CFP "Constructing a Collective European Imaginary"

Deadline: November 30, 2013

CFP: Constructing a Collective European Imaginary (from the 1940s through the Present)

This conference is the final academic event in a series of scientific gatherings initiated by the Paris-based cultural association Lubliniana and devoted to the construction of a collective European imaginary, from the late Middle Ages through the 21st century. While the previous editions of the project (Paris 2009, Lublin 2010, Gotha 2011) dealt extensively with cultural and artistic exchanges and interactions between the Roman, German, and Slavic parts of Europe throughout the early modern and the modern period (with particular attention to France, Germany, and Poland), the concluding symposium will shift focus to contemporary Europe and will look into the ways in which the continent currently acts—or fails to act—as a transnational site of cultural identification and imagination. Co-organized by the Lubliniana association, KU Leuven, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Université Libre de Bruxelles, and Université de Liège, the conference will take place in Leuven, Belgium, September 25-27, 2014.
