Step by step instructions

Instructions for submitting a paper panel 
The procedure for submitting a panel is a bit different this year. If you are a panel organizer, please follow these steps:

  1. Ask the authors of the papers on your panel to submit their paper proposals individually, using the “submit a paper/panelist” option. When paper authors do this, they will include your name and email address as part of the process. This means you will receive an email confirmation, including a proposal code, for each paper on your panel.
  2. When all paper authors have submitted their abstracts, you are ready to submit the panel. Please make sure that you have the proposal codes to hand for all of the papers on your panel. Click on “Submit a panel.”
  3. The first page asks you to enter the title of the session and an abstract for the panel. You will also be asked whether the session is part of a mini-symposium. You should also check the box for “Paper panel” under “Session Type.”
  4. After clicking "paper panel" you will be asked to "please add discussant information below." Here you can insert the discussant's name, rank, email address, and university affiliation. The discussant will automatically be informed once you finalize the submission.
  5. The next page asks you to check a box to indicate the name of the research network your panel is affiliated with. You do not need to check this box if you are not affiliated with a research network.
  6. The next page asks you to select two disciplinary tags for your panel. 
  7. The next page asks you to describe any scheduling requests you might have. CES staff will do their best to meet all reasonable requests. Click on “save and set agenda” when you are finished.
  8. After you have completed the steps above, you will be taken to the session builder. This is where you add papers to your panel. Use the search box on the right to locate the papers that your paper authors have submitted. Enter the proposal code in the search box, the paper title and author should appear in the box. Click on “add session item.”
  9. When you have finished populating your panel with the papers, click on “finalize my session.” You will be taken to the next page, where you can a chair.
  10. You will automatically be added as chair for your panel. If you’d like to add an additional chair, please click “add chair” and follow the prompts.

25th International Conference - Submission Portal

Europe and the World: Mobilities, Values and Citizenship

InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. • March 28 - 30, 2018
Organized by the Council for European Studies

The intensification of migrant flows and capital mobility in Europe in an era marked by economic instability and security crises has generated widespread political backlash that poses fundamental threats to Europe's core institutions. Understanding these developments necessitates the careful study of the wide-ranging and powerful processes of mobility, both from within and outside of Europe, that are reconfiguring identities and citizenship regimes across European nation-states. Because mobility processes are shaped by economic, cultural, and geopolitical factors and the challenges they raise span the domains of political governance, party politics, economic policy, security, and collective self-understanding, this topic requires interdisciplinary engagement across the social sciences and humanities. Many of the challenges facing Europe raise questions about the position of Europe in the world. What is specific about the European political crisis and what features does it share with comparable developments in the United States and Asia? To what degree are these changes fueled by transnational cooperation and the diffusion of strategies among political actors? What are the possible consequences of the ongoing migration patterns and the associated rise of populist politics for democratic institutions and the welfare state? How are mainstream parties on the left and the right responding to the challenges from the radical right, both in terms of electoral strategy and policy? How can tensions between essentialist views of ‘European values’ and the reality of mass migration be addressed through creative policies aimed at social and cultural inclusion?

 
In light of these concerns, the aim of the conference is to discuss the dimensions and dynamics of the nexus between existing and emergent (im)mobilities, values, and citizenship. While proposals on all topics related to Europe will be considered, special attention will be given to research that emphasizes the cultural, social, and political challenges related to Europe’s experience with internal and external migration. Projects that place the predictors, consequences, and lived realities of these developments in a comparative and international perspective are especially welcome.

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Council for European Studies, we reflect on the various ways in which Europe as a place, an idea, a people, an Empire, a utopia, and a dystopia has manifested itself. 
 
Iceland marks the ideal spot for this reflection, given its centrality to trans-Atlantic space, a core concept to the founders of CES. Iceland also represents the utopia of the European social model, and, at the same time, it was at the dystopian heart of the financial crisis. Finally, Iceland sits precariously at the juncture of tectonic plates, perhaps a geological metaphor for ongoing shifts, slides, clashes, and ruptures in the deep structure of Europe. 
 
The year 2020 marks the moment for this reflection, given recent and ongoing changes in the boundaries of European citizenship, the fragile institutional arrangements of the European social model, the postcolonial analysis of Europe in the world, the population dynamics that define who is European, Europe’s changing relationships with other regions and parts of world society, including the Global South, and the configuration of global hegemony. Having supported fifty years of research, CES is poised to advance these debates in various ways through cross-disciplinary global scholarship that deals with Europe in a comparative perspective.
 
CES thus invites proposals for panels, roundtables, book discussions, and individual papers on the study of Europe, including its various expansions and contractions over CES’ fifty-year history. We encourage proposals in the widest range of disciplines, and particularly welcome panels that combine disciplines, nationalities, genders, scholarly career stages, and other pertinent identities. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, CES is committed to engaging participants from traditionally underrepresented or underserved communities, particularly from the Global South, by awarding a limited number of travel grants covering airfare and accommodation (in full or in part) to researchers from Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

We strongly encourage participants to submit their proposals as part of an organized panel, with a Chair, 3-5 Panelists, and a Discussant. Mini-symposia and full panel proposals will be given top priority in the selection process by the Program Committee. Participants may find it useful to connect with like-minded scholars through the growing number of CES research networks, which can be found on the CES website. Participants may present in a maximum of two sessions. 
 
Proposals may be submitted until Monday, October 21, 2019 (extended deadline). Participants will be notified of the Committee’s decisions by December 15, 2019. 


The final print program will be available online on May 29, 2020.

Sovereignties in Contention:
Nations, Regions and Citizens in Europe

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
Puerta de Toledo Campus
 Madrid, Spain
June 20-22, 2019  

Sovereignty is at the crux of current developments in Europe and at the center of political debate—of which the 2016 referendum on Brexit is just one example.  The claim to regain national sovereignty vis-a-vis EU policy-making is common to populist movements throughout Europe today, and it currently dominates the rhetoric of the national governments of Hungary and Poland as well.  Anxieties about sovereignty are also key to understanding the demands put forward by regional entities such as Scotland, Catalonia, and Lombardy.
 
These fights for new forms of sovereignty – or the restoration of old ones – are surprising, even bewildering, to those who imagined that the process of European integration would render the concept of sovereignty obsolete.  Yet recent developments clearly show that sovereignty again has become a crucial concept in political, social and cultural fields.  It is increasingly invoked not only by regions, nations, and Europe itself, but also by minority populations, marginalized groups, and even individuals as the reason justifying their claims of self-governance, emancipation, or political empowerment.
