[ecrea] EiD II: Call for Papers extended

Wed Apr 04 18:42:58 GMT 2018

The 2nd International Europe in Discourse Conference


Athens, 21-23 September 2018

Call for Papers Extended

We would like to announce that the Call for Papers for the 2nd International Europe in Discourse Conference “Agendas of Reform” has been extended. We invite you to submit your abstracts by May 25th 2018 using the guidelines mentioned in the Call.

Agendas of Reform starts from the conviction that the 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.

Conference Themes

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.

We also accept papers on the following topics:

Historical, geo-cultural, geo-economic and geopolitical aspects of European identities

Europe: super-diverse and globalized

Images of crisis and recovery in Europe

Conceptual blending, discourse and metaphors about Europe

Populist discourses and the EU

The Refugee crisis in EU discourses

European diversity through religion and culture

Discursive constructions of borders

Political discourse in the European Union

Media constructions of European identities

Presentation Formats and Abstracts

Proposals are welcome as oral communications and themed panels.

Evaluation Process

All abstracts will be blind peer-reviewed and ranked by the Conference Scientific Committee. In their review, the Committee will consider the degree to which the presentation makes a contribution to the development of the discipline, points to future research agendas, or presents innovative or interdisciplinary approaches, including novel collaborations or syntheses across sub-disciplines or with other related disciplines. A proposal may be given higher priority if clearly linked to one or more of the conference themes.


Notification of acceptance of oral communications and panels will be sent by June 15th, 2018.
