Call for Papers: 23rd International Conference of Europeanists

“Resilient Europe?”
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. • April 14-16, 2016
Organized by the Council for European Studies

Resilience is the capacity to survive, to bounce back and to innovate in
the wake of extraordinary stress or unexpected crises. Psychologists view
resilience as a character trait. Today, researchers and scholars of all
stripes are beginning to understand resilience as constitutive of
societies as well as of individuals.

The Program Committee for the 23rd International Conference of
Europeanists invites participants to consider contemporary Europe’s
capacity for resilience. Since the financial crisis began in 2008,
stresses and shocks of various sorts have posed dilemmas that challenge
Europe’s resilience in economic, political, and cultural domains. How
will European economies confront slow growth and austerity, as well as the
atrophy of “social Europe” and the growth of inequality? How will
demographic decline combined with immigration and assimilation affect the
ethnic composition of Europe? Will the protracted Eurozone crisis and
waning public support for European institutions and policies alter the
viability of the European project? How will secular Europe confront the
challenges of religious mobilization? How will European democracies
confront the rise of nationalist parties and the valorization of
“illiberalism” as viable political practice? Can Europe remain a
“Normative Power,” a force for liberalism, democracy and the rule of
law in the world, in the face of rising powers and resurgent

The Council for European Studies (CES) seeks proposals that explore these
questions and the quality of resilience in Europe. It encourages proposals
from the widest range of disciplines and, in particular, proposals that
combine disciplines, nationalities, and generations. CES invites proposals
for panels, roundtables, book discussions and individual papers on the
study of Europe, broadly defined, and strongly encourages participants to
submit their proposals as part of an organized panel. Full panel proposals
will be given top priority in the selection process. To form panels,
participants may find it useful to connect with like-minded scholars
through the many CES research

Proposals may be submitted from August 17 to October 1, 2015. Participants
will be notified of the Committee’s decisions by December 10, 2015.
Information on how to submit will be posted on the Council's website and
disseminated through its newsletter. To subscribe to the CES newsletter,
