EUROPE AND ITS OTHERS.
INTERPERCEPTIONS PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE
An International Interdisciplinary Conference

6-8 JULY 2007

CALL FOR PAPERS

‘Europe and its Others’ is an international conference in the area of literary, film and media studies, covering the main European languages (English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish). It sets decipherers of Europe’s cultural traditions in interdisciplinary dialogue with historians, political scientists, social anthropologists, culture theorists, and international relationists. Through the mirroring representations of Europe’s cultural production, we aim to explore a nexus of particularly rich and complex self-and-other relationships: diverse in space, multiple in its scenes, actors, dimensions, and evolving in time. We wish to understand something about how the Other-encounters, perceptions and relationships of Europe function - a ‘poetics’ of collective, culturally formed and informed ‘identities’.

We welcome proposals for papers (a 300-word abstract) to be submitted to the Convenors of the 10 symposia that are being organised by [b]29 September 2006. [more details]
