Call for Proposals Council for European Studies

18th International Conference of Europeanists

CES partner and host of the upcoming 18th International Conference of Europeanists, the Institute Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) is a private foundation in Barcelona, Spain that serves as a center for knowledge and excellence in the field of international studies

Today the intertwined forces of globalization and political integration are remaking Europe by transforming or transcending existing national institutions, cultural patterns, agendas, and allegiances. Called transnationalization, this process is key to understanding the contemporary political, economic, social, and cultural experiences of Europeans.  Yet, it is also a recurring phenomenon that has contributed historically to the repeated re-organization of European life and institutions.

Therefore, for its Eighteenth International Conference of Europeanists, the Council for European Studies (CES) welcomes proposals for panels, roundtables, book discussions, and individual papers that deal with the causes, consequences, and meaning of transnationalization in Europe broadly defined.

The conference will be hosted by the Institut Barcelona de'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) and held at university venues in Barcelona, Spain from June 20 to June 22, 2011.

Deadlines and Submission Procedures: All proposals must be submitted between September 1, 2010 and October 10, 2010.
