[ecrea] 2nd Europe in Discourse Conference-CfP
Tue Feb 13 22:24:51 GMT 2018
Hellenic American University and the European Public Law Organization
Call for Papers
for the 2nd International Europe in Discourse Conference AGENDAS OF
REFORM Athens, 21-23 September 2018
The 1st Europe in Discourse Conference on Identity, Diversity, Borders
used the lens of discourse analysis to talk about Europe and the
challenges it faces. The Conference closed with an open commitment for a
second conference in 2018 with a greater interdisciplinary character.
The 2nd Conference under the Europe in Discourse initiative shifts the
focus of analysis from challenges to solutions. Britain’s decision to
leave the European project strengthened disintegrative agendas. The
pro-European French President, Emmanuel Macron, promises to re-launch
Europe while German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, speaks about drawing up a
"common road map" for Europe. Although reform is a common denominator,
there is no consensus on what that an agenda of reform might look like
nor how it would be achieved.
Agendas of Reform starts from the conviction that time has come for a
dialogue between those who talk about Europe and those who “do” Europe.
For political analysts, historians, economists and policy-makers in
Brussels, the Conference will be an opportunity to discuss the future of
Europe in terms of the concepts that have shaped the EU to date, such as
enlargement, integration, and institutional reform. For communication
and language analysts, the Conference will be a chance to interact with
experts from other disciplines and explore the communication
perspectives of polity building in the European Union. For all of us, it
will be an opportunity to reflect on what agendas of reform are likely
to succeed and how the hopes reflected in such agendas can best be
communicated to the people of Europe.
The 2nd Europe in Discourse Conference Agendas of Reform invites papers
from a broad range of fields and perspectives on the following topics:
Values-based Reform, from Enlargement to Legitimization
Completing the EMU
EU Security and Defense
The Franco-German Relationship
The Transatlantic Dimension
The European Union and Islam
Greece and the European Union
Since Agendas of Reform follows the 1st Europe in Discourse Conference,
contributions on the so-called “poly-crisis” of the EU, the refugee
crisis and European populism on the right and the left are also welcome.
