Call for Papers for Euroacademia International Conference 'Re-Inventing Eastern Europe'
|Date:||15 November 2013 - 16 November 2013|
|Location:||Prague, Czech Republic|
15 - 16 November, 2013 - Grand Majestic Plaza Hotel. Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC
The Second Euroacademia International Conference Re-Inventing Eastern Europe to be held in Prague, Czech Republic in 15th and 16th of November 2013 still accepts papers for the next panels:
Visual Urban Transformations: Transition and Change in Urban Image Construction in Central and Eastern Europe;
The EUs Internal Other: Eastern Europe as a Persisting Alterity;
The Readings of the Past: On Memory and Memorialization;
Space and Imaginary Geographies of Eastern Europe.
The Second Euroacademia International Conference ‘Re-Inventing Eastern Europe’ aims rather than asserting to make a case and to provide alternative views on the dynamics, persistence and manifestations of the practices of alterity making that take place in Europe and broadly in the mental mappings of the world. It offers an opportunity for scholars, activists and practitioners to locate, discuss and debate the multiple dimensions in which specific narratives of alterity making towards Eastern Europe preserve their salience today in re-furbished and re-fashioned manners. The conference aims to look at the processes of alterity making as puzzles and to address the persistence of the East-West dichotomies.
The conference is addressed to academics, researchers and professionals with a particular interest in Central and Eastern Europe from all parts of the world. As the nature of the conference is intended to be multidisciplinary in nature different academic backgrounds are welcomed.
Post-graduate students, doctoral candidates and young researchers are welcomed to submit an abstract. Representatives of INGOs, NGOs, Think Tanks and activists willing to present their work with impact on or influenced by specific understandings of the Central and Eastern Europe are welcomed as well to submit the abstract of their contribution.
Abstracts are reviewed and the participants are selected based on the proven quality of the abstract. The submitted paper for the conference proceedings is expected to be in accordance with the lines provided in the submitted abstract.
