The conference "Reviewing the Trends: The European Union from a Regulatory Institution to a Post-national Cosmopolitan Order". Date: 08-10.03.2012. Site: Venice, Italy. Deadline: 15.12.2011
Topics: The Conference aims to bring openly on the floor of debate and discussion both the past and the contemporary trends in the study of the European Union through the use of the magnifying glasses. The conference seeks to create an opportunity for evaluative accounts of essential developments within the study of the European Union. These accounts are to be understood as creative moments for articulating current concerns in the frame of disciplinary dialogue and methodological constrains or opportunities provided by the established traditions in the field of European studies. It is an opportunity for revisiting and assessing the persistent epistemological challenges in the field, the inheritances and their creative potential, the orthodoxies but also the heresies.
The conference welcomes panel and paper proposals dealing with one or multiple traditions, trends and methodological choices within the arena of European Studies. The panels and papers are expected to provide a critical assessment or a comprehensive valorisation of one of the central or out of the mainstream approaches applied to the European Union. Papers that address new puzzles, alternative theoretical choices or methodological corrections/innovations are welcomed. Both theoretical and empirical enquiries are equally considered.
