Ethnopolitics in Central and Eastern Europe in a State of Flux

Deadline: 20-10-2017
Location: Tartu

Description

Ethnopolitics in Central and Eastern Europe in a State of Flux
9-10 February 2018
University of Tartu (Estonia)

Deadline: 20 October 2017

After the end of the Cold War, ethnic relations in Central and Eastern Europe have been subject to a quadratic nexus which consists of ethnic minorities, their external homelands (or kin-states), the (frequently) nationalizing new homelands, and the European Union as both a regulatory and normative power. Since the 2000s, this nexus has undergone several readjustments.

This thematic workshop will focus on patterns, trends and transformations characterizing ethnic relations, ethnopolitics and conflict resolution in contemporary Central and Eastern Europe. The workshop has a cross-regional focus and aspires to attract a wide range of area experts with a specialization in Southeast Europe, the ‘Visegrad Four’, Baltic states, Ukraine and other parts of the post-Soviet space.
The keynote speaker is Dr Roland Kostić (Uppsala University). His research areas are conflict resolution in intra-state armed conflicts (with a focus on ethnic conflicts in Southeast Europe), post-war peace building, reconciliation, transitional justice, and diaspora and peace.

The main objectives of the workshop are to:
take stock of the state of ethnic relations across Central and Eastern Europe, with due attention to cross-national differences and regional specifics;
facilitate cross- and interdisciplinary exchange;
allow participants to embed their research more solidly into the wider regional and European contexts;
establish a network of cooperation among academic and non-academic experts.

We invite experts to contribute to this debate by submitting conceptual and empirical papers, case-studies as well as comparative works, in the following areas:
institutional and legal developments in the management of ethnic relations and minority rights: European, regional and national dimensions;
the spectrum of ethnic relations and conflict resolution in Central and Eastern Europe: political and security implications;
ethnopolitics in Central and Eastern Europe: historical and sociocultural specificities.

Please submit your abstracts (max 300 words) along with a brief CV to Vassilis Petsinis (vasileios.petsinis@ut.ee) by October 20, 2017. Decisions on submitted abstracts will be communicated by November 5, 2017. Successful candidates should submit their full papers 10 days before the workshop.

The convener, Vassilis Petsinis (PhD Birmingham), is a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher at the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies, University of Tartu. His expertise is European Politics and Ethnopolitics (nationalism, ethnic relations, and the populist & radical right) with a regional specialization in Central and Eastern Europe, including the Baltic States.

The organisers will cover all costs of participation for members of the UPTAKE consortium (Tartu, Uppsala, Kent) and meals and refreshments for all workshop participants. Non-UPTAKE participants will have to cover their own accommodation and travel-related costs. Registration for the workshop is free. Selected contributions will be published in a special issue of Ethnopolitics (Routledge).
The workshop is organized within the framework of the H2020 UPTAKE consortium which is a cooperative project between the Centre for EU-Russia Studies at the University of Tartu, the Global Europe Centre at the University of Kent, and the Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Uppsala University. It is financially supported by the European Commission under a Horizon 2020 twinning project entitled ‘Building Research Excellence in Russian and East European Studies at the Universities of Tartu, Uppsala and Kent’ (UPTAKE). It receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 691818.

Hungarian aristocracy between 1947 and 2017

Deadline: 31-10-2017
Location: Budapest

Description

Hungarian aristocracy between 1947 and 2017
Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Budapest 
1 December 2017

Two years after the highly successful d’Aremberg conference in 2015, followed by the symposium about the „Historical Roles of the Hungarian Aristocracy”, Pázmány Péter Catholic University has decided to organize another scientific event in 2017, in order to remember the still prevailing Act IV. of 1947. 

After World War II, Hungarian nobility was sentenced by a collective and disproportionate punishment which was the abolition of the historical titles and the , the effect of which is that even in our days Hungarian society has an ambivalent relationship with the officially non-existent aristocracy. The refutation of the recognition of a noble elite has become one of the basements of the so-called democratic political culture – apparently still as an immovable factor. During the seven decades, generations appeared and disappeared in such a social and cultural context, therefore the importance of the noble descent was bound to transform and a lot of historical and sociological question emerged:

Has the aristocratic identity become a plus value, promoting the excellency in the contemporary Hungarian – and other, non-Hungarian societies? Is the former Hungarian aristocracy able to play an important role in the meritocratic movements of our days?

How confessional and aristocratic identities are linked? Are the actual representatives of the former aristocracy related to formal religiosity in a more tight manner than the average people?

During the past seventy years, how the Hungarian nobility’s attitude to democratic values, democratic political culture, democratic institutions has been changed?

How the Hungarian nobility’s attitude can be described when talking about nation-states – let us think both at the 1947 Paris treaty determined small-Hungary, and the successor-states (Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Austria, Croatia)?

The Department of Political Sciences and the Research Group on Comparative Civilization History of the Pázmány Péter Catholic University, together with the Department of Sociology of the Károli Gáspár Protestant University organizes for the 1st of December 2017 an international conference on the history of the Hungarian aristocracy between 1947 and 2017. Lectures will be given in English and Hungarian.

The conference will be located in the „Sophianum” building of the Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest (1088, Mikszáth Kálmán tér 1).

You are pleased to send your conference lecture proposal with a short abstract (200-250 words) at the 31st of October the latest to Máté Botos PhD at the botos.mate@btk.ppke.hu mail adress.

Die DDR in der europäischen Öffentlichkeit 1949-2018

Deadline: 31-10-2017
Location: Strasbourg, France

Description

Die DDR in der europäischen Öffentlichkeit 1949-2018
Strasbourg, France
Pascal Fagot und Emmanuel Béhague Université de Strasbourg. EA 1341 "Mondes Germaniques et Nord-européens"
03-05/10/2018

Die Europäische Union wird heute vielerorts in Frage gestellt und scheint sich in den nationalen Räumen aufzulösen, aus denen sie besteht. Neben institutionellen, sozialen, ökonomischen und ökologischen Missständen und einer tiefgreifenden Diskreditierung des Politischen kann als wesentlicher Erklärungsgrund für diese Krise das Fehlen einer wirklichen europäischen Öffentlichkeit (C Kantner, Kein modernes Babel. Kommunikative Voraussetzung europäischer Öffentlichkeit, 2004) als Austragungsort transnationaler Debatten angeführt werden.

Ausgangspunkt der geplanten Tagung ist die Annahme, eine transnationale Debatte über die jüngste europäische Geschichte als gemeinsam erlebte Geschichte – und nicht im engen Sinne als Entwicklungsgeschichte der EU – könne zur Belebung einer noch zaghaften europäischen Öffentlichkeit beitragen. Unsere Tagung über „Die Deutsche Demokratische Republik in der europäischen Öffentlichkeit 1949-2018“ möchte die Thematik in dieser Perspektive angehen.

Seit 1990 wurde in allen Bereichen der wissenschaftlichen Geschichtsschreibung eine Vielzahl von Arbeiten über die DDR veröffentlicht. Es kann jedoch festgestellt werden, dass die Beziehung dieses heute verschwundenen Staates zu seinem europäischen Umfeld meistens im Rahmen der ost-westlichen ideologischen Bipolarität, der deutsch-deutschen oder der bilateralen Beziehung zu anderen Staaten in Ost- oder Westeuropa reflektiert wurde. Dabei erweist sich die Geschichte der bilateralen Beziehungen selbstverständlich als äußerst vielfältig; Frankreich, die Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Italien, Polen oder auch die Tschechoslowakei haben eine jeweils spezifische Beziehung zur DDR gepflegt und divergierende Repräsentationen dieses Staates entwickelt, die sich nicht ausschließlich durch das Raster der ideologischen Gegenüberstellung deuten lassen. In unserer Tagung möchten wir anders verfahren und die DDR als Bestandteil eines europäischen Raums verstehen, der sich auf der Grundlage von zahlreichen Diskursen (politischer, historischer, wissenschaftlicher, künstlerischer, medialer Art) konstituiert.

Dabei wird eine doppelte Zielsetzung verfolgt:
- Einerseits soll es darum gehen, jüngere und ältere Darstellungen der DDR in den jeweiligen nationalen Perspektiven europäischer Staaten miteinander zu konfrontieren; durch diese Gegenüberstellung sollen diese Perspektiven ergänzt und über ihre je länderspezifisch bedingten Sichtweisen hinaus erweitert werden.

- Andererseits soll der Versuch unternommen werden, Ansätze einer Antwort zu der Frage zu skizzieren, inwieweit eine als offener Raum transnationaler Debatten verstandene europäische Öffentlichkeit besteht, in der Diskurse und Repräsentationen zirkulieren. In dieser Hinsicht wird die DDR nicht nur als passives Objekt nationaler oder transnationaler Diskurse betrachtet. Es soll auch ihr direkt oder indirekt geleisteter Anteil an den Debatten und Auseinandersetzungen in Europa bis 1990 in den Fokus genommen werden. Damit soll insbesondere die Frage untersucht werden, inwiefern eine gesamteuropäische Repräsentation der DDR konstituiert wurde, und gegebenenfalls deren Herkunft und Funktionsweise erörtert werden.

Wir definieren Öffentlichkeit als „diskursive Arena“ (Nancy Fraser ) und verstehen sie nicht als homogenes Ganzes, sondern als Gefüge verschiedener interagierender Segmente (Teilöffentlichkeiten) mit jeweils eigener Thematik und diskursiver Ordnung. Die Unterteilung der europäischen Öffentlichkeit in memorielle, historiographische, künstlerische, pädagogische und politische Segmente – diese Auflistung erhebt keinen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit – soll helfen, die Analyse und Diskussion zu gestalten; sie soll die Konfrontation der verschiedenen Darstellungen der DDR und ein besseres Verständnis der transnationalen Eigendynamik der untersuchten Segmente ermöglichen.

Folgende Themenkomplexe können behandelt werden:
- Der memorielle Diskurs über die DDR 
- Die DDR in den Lehrplänen unterschiedlicher europäischer Staaten
- Diskurse und Debatte zum politischen Modell der DDR 
- Die Integration der DDR im intellektuellen, kulturellen und künstlerischen europäischen Raum…
Die Liste ließe sich fortsetzen.

Unsere Tagung versteht sich als interdisziplinär und spricht alle europäischen Geisteswissenschaftler und –rinnen an, die sich für die DDR interessieren. Die Vorträge sollen 20 Minuten dauern, sie werden in deutscher, französischer und eventuell auch in englischer Sprache gehalten. Wir bitten jeden Vortragenden, ein schriftliches Resümee seines Textes in einer anderen Sprache als der des mündlichen Vortrags bereitzuhalten.

Die Tagung findet vom 3. bis zum 5. Oktober statt. Die Beitragsvorschläge (ca. eine Seite) sind bis zum 31. Oktober 2017 an Pascal Fagot und Emmanuel Béhague einzureichen.

Living the German Revolution 1918-19: Expectations, Experiences, Responses

Deadline: 01-11-2017
Location: London

Description

Living the German Revolution 1918-19: Expectations, Experiences, Responses

18.10.2018 - 20.10.2018

The German Revolution of 1918-19 marks a historical turning point at which, following the catastrophe of the Great War, soldiers and civilians rose up to overthrow the German Empire’s political and military leadership. The approaching centenary offers a timely occasion to re-evaluate its contested history and memory by focussing on the socio-cultural realm of expectations, experiences and responses. The German Revolution was a key event in the era of seismic transnational upheaval which shook Europe between 1916 and 1923. An advanced industrial economy with the most powerful organised labour movement in the world, Germany was practically, strategically and symbolically critical to competing visions of the future in this new age of revolution. ‘The absolute truth’, wrote Lenin, ‘is that without revolution in Germany we shall perish’.

The conference proposes to re-evaluate the history of the German Revolution by shifting attention to the practices and agency of protagonists and stakeholders beyond the political elites. It seeks to explore the subjective dimension of the events and to investigate the diverse expectations, experiences and responses of Germans old and young, female and male, rural and urban, Catholic, Protestant and Jewish. For despite its evident significance as a historical watershed, the German Revolution remains poorly understood. Scholarship has made faltering progress since the historiography of the 1960s and 1970s, which concentrated on the constitutional and high political course of the revolution. While the notion that historians have ‘forgotten’ the German Revolution is no longer entirely accurate, it remains one of the least-studied transitions in European history.

The conference’s new perspective will register, among other topics, the revolution’s popular mobilisation and societal penetration, its impact on everyday life, its destruction of inherited patterns of authority, its generation of new affiliations, boundaries and cultural expressions, and its complex and contested legacy for the Weimar Republican project. It will establish an intellectual toolkit to analyse the creation, performance and experience of revolution and democratic citizenship, focusing on the dynamics of language, symbolism, practices, gender, emotions and mentalities.

While the focus of the conference rests on events between November 1918 and May 1919, we welcome contributions that critique this timeframe and situate the German Revolution within longer-term developments. By the same token, a comparative approach that combines different regional case studies, investigates the dynamics between centres and peripheries, and explores the impact of events in other countries, such as Russia, Hungary and Italy, on the German Revolution (and vice versa) will help to situate the events of 1918-19 within a broader European culture of protest, political upheaval and social change. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches.

Themes might include:

- The creation and performance of revolutionary politics

- Patterns of political and cultural demobilization and remobilization in wake of the Great War

- Individual expectations and experiences in cultural settings such as the metropolis, small towns or countryside as well as in the virtual realm of media and the arts

- Revolutionary economics

- Gender and the German Revolution

- Paramilitarism and violence

- Protestants, Catholics, Jews and the German Revolution

- Different ideas of politics and social participation developed during these months in different contexts and by different groups of actors (including an analysis of their particular semantics)

- The impact of these ideas of politics and social participation on the longue durée history of democracy in Germany from the Weimar Republic to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Benjamin Ziemann (Sheffield) will deliver the conference’s keynote lecture.

The organisers aim to secure funding to defray the travel and accommodation expenses of participants. Conversations are underway for the publication of contributors’ papers within an edited volume to be published as close as possible to the centenary.

The language of the conference is English.

Please send proposals of up to 350 words and a brief biographical note by 1st November 2017 to: GR2018mail@gmail.com

Populism in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union: Conceptual, Empirical and Comparative Perspectives

Populism in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union: Conceptual, Empirical and Comparative Perspectives

Annual Young Researchers Conference

Havighurst Center, Miami University, OH
15-17 February 2018
Deadline: 10 November 2017

“Populism” is a term often used in the scholarly literature on postcommunism – and yet its meaning and explanatory potential remain elusive. The consensus that populist discourses, tropes, rituals, ideas and practices should be counted among the most important factors that propelled transformative processes in the former “second world” does not extend to questions such as: what is the proper way to conceptualize and contextualize the notion of populism? What are the historical roots of the populist phenomenon and the enduring local traditions that sustain it? How did populist rhetoric and appeal change over time, e.g. when several East European countries successfully completed their accession process and became full members of the European Union? What are the cultural resources that populists are able to mobilize, and in what repertoires of contention are such resources invested? How are populist actors and constituencies situated in evolving configurations of power? What is their impact on mainstream politics and established institutional landscapes? And how do populist demands shape oppositional tactics and governmental priorities?

This Young Researchers Conference – an annual event sponsored by the Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies at Miami University – seeks to tap into the new wave of research that sheds light on such questions and on postcommunist populism more generally. It is intended to be interdisciplinary, so we invite contributions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives: gender, literary, anthropological, sociological, historical, media studies, political science. The research projects might be related to any region that formerly belonged to the sphere of Soviet domination (East and Central Europe, the Balkans, the Baltics, Central Asia, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus).

Eligibility:
The Havighurst Center welcomes papers from scholars who are completing their dissertation or have received their Ph.D. (or candidate degree) within the past five years.

Conference Formal:
Participants will prepare a paper to be circulated well in advance and read by all conference presenters, chairs, and discussants. During the conference presenters will have 15 minutes to summarize their findings. The small number of participants and mix of junior and senior scholars make the Havighurst Center’s Young Researchers Conference an excellent venue for both advancing research projects and networking with leading and upcoming figures in a wide range of fields. The working language of the conference is English.

Submitting Abstracts and CVs:
Please submit by November 10, 2017 a one-page, single-spaced abstract, as well as a one-page, singled-spaced curriculum vitae to Venelin I. Ganev, Professor in Political Science, Miami University – ganevvi@miamioh.edu ). Participants will be notified by December 1, 2018 if they have been selected for the conference.

Accommodation and Travel Arrangements:
The Havighurst Center will provide meals and hotel accommodation in Oxford as well as ground transportation between the Cincinnati and Dayton airports and Oxford, Ohio. Partial travel funding might also be available if needed.

Beyond Secularization. Religion in Culture, Society and Politics in Central Europe during the 19th and 20th Centuries

Deadline : 31 December 2017
Contact: stred@mua.cas.cz
Publication languages: Czech, English, German
Journal Website:

Abstracts: http://cejsh.icm.edu.pl
Indexing: ERIH+, SCOPUS, CEEEOL, CEJSH
Religion’s role and influence in the public sphere rises and falls in all socioeconomic contexts – pre-industrial, industrial, and post-industrial – something the inhabitants of Central Europe have once more become aware of, whether from a global or a local perspective. The mission and impact of religion are not necessarily connected and contingent on the growth of human knowledge, rationality, or technology. In fact, the retreat of religion from the public space and the privatization of religious values and practises did not imitate the processes of industrialization, urbanization, or political processes and changes. A critical view of the secularization paradigm is thus an integral part of current academic discussions. These are the perspectives through which the theme of the next Střed/Centre issue would like to examine the role of religion and the development and trajectory of the historiography of religion.
The field of inquiry should not be limited only to traditional institutional entities, but should also focus on smaller and peripheral religious communities and sects (spiritism, atheist movements). With the theme of this issue we would like to go beyond the traditional and dominant topics of the establishment of national churches, political catholicism, diplomatic relations, and biographies of religious community leaders towards a consideration of religious thought and practise within regions, industrial areas, among social groups, generations, and in terms of gender. Also welcome are contributions that connect social and cultural history with religious history and other historical and social sciences. We will appreciate contributions on how society was shaped according to the religious and confessional principle, the relationship between religion and violence, the transfer of modern religious movements and currents, reactions to social and economic problems and changes, or different types of religiosity (among workers, women, young people, veterans, in pastors’ appeals to industrial society, the life of smaller and marginal religious communities and sects). We are also interested in how religious motifs and practices are imprinted upon the relationships that form identities, everyday life, inform decision-making processes, or the methodological reflection of the (Central) European historiography of religion.
