    Author Meets Critics: Lecture by Jan-Werner Müller

      Contesting Democracy: Political Ideas in Twentieth Century Europe The interdisciplinary research network Rethinking European Integration is proud to announce that Jan-Werner Müller will give a lecture on his latest book Contesting Democracy: Political Ideas in Twentieth Century Europe (Yale University Press, 2011). Jan-Werner Müller is a Professor of Political Theory at Princeton University and has written extensively on ideology, memory and political thought in Twentieth Century Germany and Europe. Following Professor Müller’s lecture, there will be comments by Mikkel Thorup (Associate Professor at the Institute of Philosophy and the History of Ideas, University of Århus) and Niklas Olsen (Postdoc at the SAXO-Institute, University of Copenhagen) and a Q&A session. After the lecture, there will be a reception with drinks and snacks. The lecture is open for all, but registration is necessary: Abstract Contesting Democracy: Political Ideas in Twentieth Century Europe is the first major account of political thought in twentieth-century Europe, both West and East, to appear since the end of the Cold War. Skillfully blending intellectual, political, and cultural history, Jan-Werner Müller elucidates the ideas that shaped the period of ideological extremes before 1945 and the liberalization of West European politics after the Second World War. He also offers vivid portraits of famous as well as unjustly forgotten political thinkers and the movements and institutions they inspired. Müller pays particular attention to ideas advanced to justify fascism and how they relate to the special kind of liberal democracy that was created in postwar Western Europe. He also explains the impact of the 1960s and neoliberalism, ending with a critical assessment of today's self-consciously post-ideological age. » Read more

    Culture, Identity and Recognition

      Read full program here In recent years, interest in the notion of recognition has been growing in the social sciences and in philosophy, and increasingly this interest can also be found in cultural studies. Concurrently, the question of recognition has shifted its focus. For some time the theoretical discussions were mainly bound to the question of recognition of the collective identities of social or ethnic groups. However, since the 1990s discussions have centered more and more on the question of how social relations and human interactions contribute to the construction of the individual's identity.  Which role do cultural dimensions play in the struggle for recognition, and is it possible to identify universal, formal dimensions of this struggle, which might function as the foundation for a progressive, inclusive European identity? Can articulations of migratory experience in the cultural field help to shed light on the possibilities of developing a progressive European conception of identity? The seminar will address these questions from a range of different perspectives -  including the social sciences, literary studies and cultural studies. Free admission. Registration:  no later than 28th September 2011 by sending an email to Anne Ring Petersen:   » Read more

    'Culture' - the concept and the politics

      PhD workshop. Guest: Professor Catharina Raudvere, Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies, University of Copenhagen The workshop is held by CEMES Yong Scholars, Centre for Modern European Studies  ( It is organized by Kristine Marie Berg:; Cecilie Givskov: 1 October 2010, 13 -17, room 27.0.47,
Southern Campus, University of Copenhagen ECTS points: 1,8 In Europe culture seems to matter more than ever - especially religion and ethnicity have gained momentum with reference to the effects of migration and notions of the multicultural. Identity politics, politics of difference and recognition saturate Europe's public spheres and European politics at sub-national as well as pan-national levels. Simultaneously, academia - especially the humanities - has turned towards culture as a focal point for research regarding contemporary Europe. This PhD workshop offers the opportunity to present and discuss theoretical, analytical and empirical issues related to concepts of culture with special emphasis on the implications of the interaction between the political and the theoretical dimensions. The workshop is open to PhD students at any stage in their writing process. Professor Catharina Raudvere researches in religious and political mobilization and in questions of trans-locality and exile. She is furthermore interested in the consequences of migration and globalization on religious movements in late-modern society. Preliminary program Lecture by Professor Raudvere (title to be announced) Lunch for participants On the background of short papers (read by Catharina Raudvere in advance) 5 to 6 participants are invited to give 20 min. presentations. Each presentation will be followed by response from Catharina Raudvere. At the end of each session the floor is open for questions and discussion Dinner for participants If you want to participate please send an abstract of max 400 words by 15 June 2010 to the organizers. Information about admittance will be given by 1 July 2010 Deadline 15 August 2010: A max. 2000 words paper is sent to the organizers » Read more
