The Center for European Studies at Chapel Hill will be re-applying for funding as a National Resource Center for 2010-2014. We invite all UNC faculty and graduate students with a primary focus on European studies to submit a proposal for research working groups, research projects, or other research or teaching projects directly related to contemporary Europe, the EU, or transatlantic studies. All proposals must be submitted electronically (preferably from a UNC email account to avoid the spam filter) to firstname.lastname@example.org . We will hold an informational meeting early in the fall. A CES committee will consider which projects best fit the grant proposal and the appropriate level of funding.
In your funding proposal, please include:
Working Group for Historical Research on the Family of the History of Education
January 28-30, 2010 |
University of Hildesheim, Germany
The conference inquires, microhistorically-speaking, about family traditions and cultures in individual families, in networks of familial relations, and in social groups since the 18th century, both in particular time periods and with a view to long-term continuities and processes of transformation. Macrohistorically-speaking, the conference seeks to expand understandings of the development of, and continuity and change in family cultures and traditions in societies, both in individual epochs and as long-term historical processes. Transnational and internationally comparative studies are welcomed, as are individual case studies. In addition, presenters are invited to explore theoretical and methodological points of entry into relevant themes, the basis of historical and/or 21st-century source materials.
Please send proposals and inquiries to Prof. Dr. Carola Groppe at email@example.com. For details, please view the call for proposals: http://h-net.msu.edu/cgi-bin/logbrowse.pl?trx=vx&list=H-Childhood&month=0907&week=a&msg=J0RL2tZRqDFikvrNySuQvA
Deadline: July 31, 2009
Cultures & Languages Across the Curriculum
October 15-16, 2009
| Baldwin-Wallace College | Berea, Ohio
A specific focus of the 4th annual conference on Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum will be on global or intercultural competency across the curriculum. While existing LAC programs at institutions across the country are remarkably diverse in their shape and structure, as a general rule they tend to focus on language use and on the development of content-specific language skills. The "C" in CLAC represents a new focus on integrating cross-cultural perspectives into Languages Across the Curriculum programs and into courses in all disciplinary areas.
Please visit http://www.bw.edu/academics/fll/lac/clac2009/papers/ for details.
In collaboration with Binghamton University, University of Iowa, Portland State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Drake University, University of Richmond, Skidmore College and ACE’s Internationalization Collaborative.
Deadline: August 15, 2009

Transformative Power of Europe
December 10-11, 2009
| Berlin, Germany
this academic conference, we invite papers from various disciplinary perspectives
of these themes. Papers should explicitly address diffusion
and transfer processes “from the outside
in”, that is, the EU and its member states as recipients of policies
and ideas, and/or “from
the inside out,” that is, the EU and its member
states as agents of diffusion. Please find more detailed

Journal of Law and Conflict Resolution
The Journal of Law and Conflict Resolution (JLCR) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal published monthly by Academic Journals (www.academicjournals.org/JLCR). JLCR is dedicated to increasing the depth of the subject across disciplines with the ultimate aim of expanding knowledge of the subject.
JLCR will cover all areas of the subject. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and will publish:
We invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for publication in the monthly issue. Our objective is to inform authors of the decision on their manuscript(s) within four weeks of submission. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next issue. Instruction for authors and other details are available on our website at www.academicjournals.org/JLCR/Instruction.htm
One key request of researchers across the world is unrestricted access to research publications. Open access gives a worldwide audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal and thus increases the visibility and impact of published works. It also enhances indexing, retrieval power and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content. JLCR is fully committed to the Open Access Initiative and will provide free access to all articles as soon as they are published.
Galaxy Theater Tickets
The Center for European Studies has teamed up with the Galaxy Cinema in Cary, which specializes in independent films, international films, and documentaries. K-12 Educators and Community College faculty interested in expanding their knowledge of Europe through films can request free tickets to Galaxy Cinema films from the Center. Tickets are available only for films related to Europe that are not part of a film festival or event. To request a ticket, please contact the Center for European Studies' Outreach Coordinator with the following information: name, school, school mailing address, title of film, and date you need the ticket.
If you are requesting multiple tickets for a group of teachers at your school, please include in your request the names of all the teachers who will be attending.

Global Updates from World View
This issue of Global Updates includes a spotlight on Heifer International. Heifer International provides a holistic approach to ending world poverty.

World View not only values
Heifer’s humanitarian efforts around
the globe, but also its dedication to educating America’s youth
about the world. This issue of Global Updates highlights Heifer’s
65-year legacy, their unique education resources, and their Heifer Study

Nationalities Papers is the leading journal on nationalism, ethnicity, ethnic conflict and national identity in Central Europe, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, the Caucasus, the Turkic world and Central Eurasia. Furthermore, the journal also publishes contributions on theories of nationalism, comparative studies of nationalism, and trans- and supranational aspects of interethnic relations and national identity.

In 2009, Nationalities Papers has moved to six issues per year. Under the leadership of a new editorial team, the journal will receive a visual re-design in 2010 and launch a number of exciting new features, such as book symposiums, state of the art articles and debates, and special sections. In this context Nationalities Papers is soliciting submissions from broad disciplinary and regional ranges. As part of these changes, we are looking for innovative contributions in the field, both in terms of new and ground-breaking research and theoretical articles. Being a journal with an international editorial team and a global readership, we are open to contributions from around the world.
