[ecrea] Europe in Discourse: Agendas of Reform, call for papers

Mon Apr 30 22:04:38 GMT 2018

The 2nd International Europe in Discourse Conference AGENDAS OF REFORM 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

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.
