Lecture with John Wheatley White: “The French Revolution as the Historical Revelation of Nature in Georg Büchner’s Dantons Tod

Sunday, December 8, 2013 | 5:00 – 7:00 pm | UNC-Chapel Hill, Institute for Arts and Humanities, Hyde Hall John Wheatley White, a PhD Candidate in European History at UNC-Chapel Hill, will be speaking in conjunction with the North Carolina German Studies Seminar and Workshop Series. Georg Büchner’s Dantons Tod (1835) presents a paradox: despite that Georges Danton becomes a victim of the reign of terror which he himself has helped to initiate, an “erotic utopia” seems to emerge. The presentation analyzes this development by focusing on the shifting representation of nature. At the outset of the revolution, nature is apprehended as a guarantor of rights and claimed as a means of legitimation. But this notion is unable to accommodate the new horrific reality which the revolution has engendered. Instead, a more complex conception of nature emerges, which is manifested erotically; rather than being sociopolitical, it is corporeal. History consequently supersedes nature, for it is the former which reveals the deep complexity of the latter.

Conferences, Workshops and Calls for Papers

10th Biennial Conference of the European Community Studies Association-Canada

May 8-10, 2014 | Montreal, Quebec, Canada In 2012, the European Union was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. This decision provoked strong reactions, from the Wall Street Journal praising it as “inspired” to British politicians calling it “preposterous and absurd.” Much was made of EU leaders’ initial inability to decide who would represent the organization for the award ceremony in Oslo. Commentators also derided the fact that the recognition that the European Union “for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe” seemed to come at particularly inappropriate time, as the EU faced the worst economic and institutional crisis since its creation, perhaps forcing Greece to exit, while the UK threatened to do so. Taking up the Nobel Committee’s challenge, the 10th Biennial Conference of European Communities Studies Association – Canada (ECSA-C) will evaluate, measure and explain the EU’s actual contribution to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights. The objective of the conference is to provide a balanced assessment and analytical understanding of the EU’s specific contributions (or lack thereof) to peace broadly understood. Paper on any topic related to the EU will are welcome. Particular attention will be paid to the implications and lessons learnt of the European experience for other countries and regions, especially Quebec, Canada and North America. Submissions, to be sent electronically to ecsa-c@umontreal.ca, can be written in English or in French. About 30 travel grants will be made available to graduate and postdoctoral students who are presenting a paper. Please indicate in your submission if you are requesting such a grant. More information about the conference and the call for proposals Deadline for submissions: December 1, 2013

7th Biennial Pan-European Conference on the European Union

June 5-7, 2014 | The Hague, The Netherlands The ECPR Standing Group on the European Union calls for papers for its 7th biennial conference. All papers and panels that discuss aspects of European integration are invited, including those that highlight new theoretical and empirical research that reflects on the ever-changing nature of the EU; the democratic legitimacy of the integration process; the evolution, functioning and effects of EU policies and institutions; the role of the EU in the broader world, and so on. The full list of conference sections and instructions for submission of panels and paper are available on the ECPR Pan-European Conference website. Deadline for submissions: December 1, 2013

6th Biennial AWSS Conference: Women, Gender, and Revolution in Slavic Studies

April 10, 2014 | Atlanta, GA The Association for Women in Slavic Studies (AWSS) is soliciting paper presentations on the theme of “Women, Gender, and Revolution in Slavic Studies” for its 6th Biennial Conference to be held on Thursday, April 10, 2014, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Atlanta, GA. The conference will be held in conjunction with the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Southern Conference on Slavic Studies (SCSS), which opens Thursday evening and runs through Saturday. The theme of women, gender, and revolution can be approached in a variety of ways.  Most concretely, the theme addresses the actions of men and women in political revolution, broadly conceived, including (but not limited to) events of 1848, 1905, and 1917, events leading up to the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, and the post-Community transformations after 1989. The theme also invites the study of gendered representations of revolutionary events, and of significant transformation in gender roles at any time in Russia and East European History. The conference organizers invite proposals from scholars at all stages in their careers and in any discipline of Slavic Studies (history, literature, linguistics, political science, sociology, anthropology, economics, gender studies, etc.).  Proposals should consist of a 250-word abstract of the paper (including the paper’s title) and a brief one-page CV that includes author’s affiliation and contact information.  Proposals are due by December 15 to Sharon Kowalsky, Associate Professor of History, Texas A&M University-Commerce. Any questions about the conference or the program should be directed to Sharon Kowalsky or Karen Petrone.

1st European Conference on Teaching and Learning Politics, International Relations and European Studies

June 26-27 | Maastricht, The Netherlands What does it mean to teach Politics, International Relations (IR), or European Studies (ES) to the next generation of students, what should it mean for future students to learn Politics, International Relations, or European Studies? What are the opportunities of educating the next generation of a knowledge society? But also what challenges will Politics, IR and ES instructors encounter, considering the overburdening availability of (electronic) information and the growing demand for skills-based education? Next to those global trends in higher education, there are also specific features of European Higher Education that need careful consideration: the Bologna process, the employability discourse, or the raising concern with fees to mention just a few. The aim of this conference is to bring together members of existing teaching and learning networks (ECPR, PSA, BISA and UACES) and to provide an opportunity for exchange, discussion and reflection about those questions and about teaching and learning Politics, International Relations or European Studies to future generations of students in more general terms. Contributions are welcome on any topic of teaching and learning, but we would like to encourage participants to consider the following questions:

  • In what respect is there a “new” generation of  students? In what manner are current and future students different: in terms of their expectations, needs, and demands?
  • How to react and integrate the demand for skills and employability in everyday teaching?
  • Who should ensure students´ motivation, and how can this be achieved?
  • How to remember what it means to learn ourselves?
  • How to harness the potential for active engagement in Politics and IR teaching?
  • What role for Politics, IR, or ES to provide counter-balance to increasing

3rd SPERI Annual Conference: The Global Contours of Growth & Development Beyond the Crisis

June 30-July 2, 2014 | University of Sheffield The 2014 SPERI conference seeks to take discussion of the political economy of the crisis beyond its British and European contexts to focus centrally on the dynamics and patterns of the distribution of growth and development across the entire global political economy. One view presumes that the contemporary economic and financial crisis is an appropriate lens through which to consider the global political economy and all of its constituent parts, placing emphasis on the integrated nature of global capitalism and the ‘global imbalances’ that draw all regions and countries into a measure of responsibility for the structural roots of crisis and recession. An alternative view argues that the implications of the crisis have been much more uneven and localized, mediated by differing types of political economy, growth models and development strategies. Meanwhile, the uncertainty surrounding the changing roles of the ‘rising powers’ or ‘BRICS’ economies, the continual flux and increasing ambiguity of categories such as ‘low-income’ and ‘middle-income’ countries, and signs of a weakening of the hold of established ‘orthodox’ ideologies of development all suggest that fresh thinking is needed about the nature of future growth and development in all parts of the global political economy, whether conventionally regarded as ‘developed’ or ‘developing’. For more information about the conference, consult the call for papers and visit the SPERI website. Please send abstracts (of no more than a page in length) of proposed papers/panels to Sarah Boswell by emailing speri@sheffield.ac.uk. Deadline for submissions: January 31, 2014
