The Europaeum (Oxford) opened a call for a spring school titled "Europe in the World - The World in Europe" that will take place online from April 22 to April 24, 2021.
This Spring School will bring together post-graduate researchers, mainly but by no means exclusively, in Humanities and Social Sciences discussing the wider impact of the world on Europe and of Europe in the world in a historical and contemporary context. Issues that will be explored by leading experts include topics such as the COVID crisis, our global state of democracy, ending the Cold War, and the implications of AI. The participants will provide alternative readings of how interdependence in the world has developed over the last century and how that affects the current state of Europe. Speakers will include Lord Chris Patten (Chancellor of the University of Oxford), Janez Lenarčič (European Commissioner for Crisis Management), Professor Archie Brown (Oxford), Dr Kevin Casas-Zamora (Secretary General, International IDEA), Professor Robert Gildea (Oxford), Artur Kluz (Centre for Technology and Global Affairs, Oxford), and Dr Marcin Walecki (Oxford).
Applications from Master's and doctoral students who wish to either join the discussions or give a paper are welcome. Applications should include the Europaeum application form, a brief CV, a statement of purpose (up to 500 words), and a reference letter by their supervisor or academic advisor. Those who wish to submit a paper should also add a short abstract of the proposed paper (up to 500 words).
The deadline for submitting applications is March 1, 2021 to More information is available on the Europaeum website.
