14th Biennial Conference of Europeanists Call for Papers "Europe and the World: Integration, Interdependence, Exceptionalism?"
March 11-13, 2004, Chicago
The Council for European Studies announces a call for papers for its 14th International Conference of Europeanists, to be held in Chicago, March 11-13, 2004. The deadline for receipt of all submissions is October 15, 2003.
Since its first conference in 1979, the Council has brought together American and European scholars in the social sciences and humanities to foster scholarly exchange and collaboration. The Council strongly encourages interdisciplinary and trans-Atlantic panels that promote dialogue within the academy and policy communities, including Western and Eastern Europe. Participation by graduate students is welcome. Proposals from all fields of study are invited, and the program committee especially welcomes proposals on the following themes:
* Reckoning with the European Past: Empires, the Cold War and Human Rights
* Europeanization: Prospects, Opportunities, Challenges
* European Cities, European Regions
* New Party Politics: East and West, North and South
* Constitutions, Governance, and Citizenship
* Traveling, Trafficking, and Transnational Regulation
* Transformations in Work, Welfare, and Family: New Risks, New Politics
The program committee will consider panel and individual paper submissions. Please note that the acceptance rate for submissions of complete panels (with three or four papers or roundtable participants, a chair and one or two discussants) has been higher than for individual papers in the past, and we strongly encourage scholars working on similar topics to propose panels. The Council also encourages those who would be interested in serving as discussants or panel chairs to submit their names and areas of expertise.
Please note participants are limited to two presentations on the conference program and individual scheduling requests cannot be assured. A limited number of subsidies may be available for scholars travelling from Europe and for graduate students, pending funding. These subsidies consist of reimbursement for scholars traveling from Europe of three nights at the basic conference hotel room rate and two nights for graduate students.
Questions can be addressed to John K. Glenn, Executive Director, or to the members of the program committee: John Stephens (political science, UNC-Chapel Hill, chair), James Cronin (history, Boston College), Adrian Favell (sociology, UCLA), Anna Grzymala Busse (political science, Yale), Barbara Hobson (sociology, University of Stockholm), Suzanne Marchand (history, Louisiana State University), Jane Schneider (anthropology, CUNY), Jonathan Zeitlin (sociology, University of Wisconsin-Madison).
All submissions must be accompanied by the 2004 Conference cover sheet available on the Council's website, include eight copies of all materials, and be submitted by regular postal mail to:
Program Committee 2004

420 West 118th Street, Mailcode 3310
