    Second call for abstracts - Visions of Europe in the Eurovision Song Contest

    The Eurovison Conference, 5-7 May, 2014 in Copenhagen This Year’s Eurovision conference, which will take place in Copenhagen during Eurovision week 2014, will as its main theme focus on the multiple visions of Europe in the Eurovision Song Contest. Such visions can take many shapes, be they politically, economically, culturally, sexually and (mental) geographically charged. Visions of Europe link intrinsically to specific comprehensions of Europe in past and present. Visions are always partial, situated, embodied; they have material-discursive implications. Popular culture and performance cultures represented in the Eurovision Song Contest offer distinct opportunities for observing and displaying the contested nature of envisioning Europe. Second call for abstractsPlease send an abstract (format: Word) of no more than 300 words to: Lisanne Wilken: ceklw@hum.au.dk. Deadline is 15 March 2014.

    Debatmøde Europa eller kaos? Europæisk identitet ifølge de intellektuelle

    ”Europa er ikke i krise. Europa er døende. Naturligvis ikke Europa rent geografisk, men Europa som idé. Europa som en drøm, en plan og et projekt.” Sådan lød de indledende ord i det manifest, Tro på Europa eller dø, som et antal fremtrædende europæiske intellektuelle tidligere på året lod indrykke i en række europæiske aviser (se f.eks. Politiken den 2. februar 2013) » Read more

    Europe's neoliberal turn: markets, competition and competitiveness, 1973-mid-1980s

    This workshop starts with the assumption that widespread concerns about Europe’s competitiveness and the belief in the self-regulatory power of markets were necessary preconditions for legitimizing neoliberal policies at both the European level and within European states from the 1980s onwards but with important repercussions up to the present.  » Read more

    Hvorfor er Putin ikke KUN en djævel?

    Magistra Vitae – Historisk Alumneforening inviterer til foredrag med Ruslandsekspert Jens Jørgen Nielsen. Når det handler om Rusland, er Vestens politikere og medier enige om én ting: Præsident Putin er en djævel, og russerne vil være bedre undt uden ham. Men hvorfor mener russerne ikke det samme? Rigtig mange russere ser i stedet Putin som den mand, der har fået landet på rette kurs efter 1990’erne, hvor vestens darling Boris Jeltsin kørte landets økonomi i sænk. Historiker og tidligere Ruslandskorrespondent Jens Jørgen Nielsen, vil med udgangspunkt i sin nye debatbog: ’På egne præmisser – Putin og det nye Rusland’ give et mere nuanceret billede af både Putin, russerne og Rusland. Bogen bag foredraget vil kunne købes til reduceret pris på dagen. Tilmelding på mvalumne@gmail.com » Read more

    CONCEPTA: INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH SCHOOL IN CONCEPTUAL HISTORY

    CONCEPTA: International Research School in Conceptual History Offered in cooperation with the Dept. of Culture and Global Studies, Aalborg University, The Saxo Institute, University of Copenhagen, the Dept. of History, University of Southern Denmark, and the Graduate School of Arts, Aarhus University In the summer of 2013, Concepta, International Research School in Conceptual History and Political Thought, and partner institutions will organize the eight Introduction to Conceptual History course (the course have been located at the University of Helsinki, Finland, in the previous years). An international team of distinguished scholars and visiting lecturers will help participants critically examine the chief concepts in the humanities and social sciences from new perspectives. The goal of conceptual history is to illuminate the concepts and ideas that are central to the operation of political and social life through the study of their migration, reception, translation, and diffusion through time and space. Conceptual analysis involves looking at larger semantic, discursive, ideological and rhetorical settings in which concepts are given meaning. Doing conceptual history, therefore, demands familiarity with a variety of linguistically oriented approaches to discourse and ideology, as well as to rhetoric. The course has two main objectives. First, it introduces students to the fundamental aspects of the theory and methodology of conceptual history (scholars such as Reinhart Koselleck, Quentin Skinner, John Pocock, and Michel Foucault), which they can then use as tools in their own research. Second, it explores contemporary trends in conceptual history through case studies. The course includes a series of lectures, a seminar and workshops. It is designed for Danish and international PhD and advanced Master’s degree students from various academic fields. TEACHERS AND LECTURERS Professor Martin Burke, CUNY, New York Senior Researcher Margrit Pernau, , Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin Professor Helge Jordheim, University of Oslo Postdoc Jani Marjanen, CENS, Helsinki University Professor Michael Freeden, University of Nottingham Emeritus Senior Research Fellow Hans Erich Bödeker, The Max Planck Institute, Göttingen.
