New Funding Proposals for EU Grant

EU Flag with Yellow FlowersThe European Union Center of Excellence at UNC Chapel Hill will be re-applying for funding as a continuing center for 2011-2014. We invite all faculty, graduate students, and professionals to submit proposals for research working groups, research projects, or other research, teaching, or outreach projects directly related to the EU or transatlantic studies. Proposals should be 1-2 pages and should include a detailed budget and basic information on the project leaders and any partnering organizations or universities.

All proposals must be submitted electronically (preferably from a UNC email account to avoid the spam filter) to eedwards@email.unc.edu by May 20, 2011. A CES committee will consider which projects best fit the grant proposal and the appropriate level of funding. We especially welcome proposals from the professional schools; projects that involve collaboration with other universities in the US; proposals with significant outreach components to K-16 schools, the media, business communities, and/or state and local opinion leaders; and projects that utilize new technologies to reach wider audiences.

Art Exhibits: De-Natured and Romantic Dreams
The following exhibits at the Ackland Art Museum will run until July 10, 2011.

De-Natured: German Art from Joseph Beuys to Martin Kippenberger
For contemporary German artists, representation, authenticity, and history are all fractured, problematic, and "de-natured." Seen together, the nearly 40 works in this exhibition present a complex and compelling introduction to the notable efflorescence of art in post-war Germany.

Romantic Dreams | Rude Awakenings: Northern European Prints and Drawings, 1840–1940
A century of social upheaval in Germany and its surrounding countries prompted artists to create fantastic visions of idealized worlds and bitter observations of a cruel reality. This exhibition includes more than 75 prints and drawings by Adolf Menzel, Max Klinger, Käthe Kollwitz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Emil Nolde, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Max Beckmann, and others.

For a list of exhibition-related programs at the Ackland Art Museum (www.ackland.org/index.php), please see this announcement (PDF).

Art Now/Cinema Now - In the Shadow of Catastrophe: German Cinema 1977-1992

Germany, Pale MotherVarsity Theater, Downtown Chapel Hill
What is the role of art in times of darkness? German artists, confronted with the urgency of this question during the second half of the twentieth century, saw art as a means to reflect upon catastrophic events. This series examines German filmmakers’ responses to the incomprehensibility of violence, terror, and self-destruction that was associated with their national identity.

Free and open to the public.

  • Saturday, April 30, 7:00 PM | Lessons of Darkness (Werner Herzog, 1992)

    Lessons of Darkness unlocks both the terrifying beauty and the apocalyptic horror inscribed in the landscape in the wake of the first Gulf War (1990-91). Although Werner Herzog's film ostensibly investigates the results of the United States' intervention in Iraq, it touches on the aesthetic and ideological complexities involved in any attempt to represent the effects of war--a project that cannot be seen outside of the context of Germany's own troubled past.

    Following the documentary, UNC-Chapel Hill faculty members Christina Wegel (German), Richard Langston (German), Gabriel Trop (German), and Richard Cante (Communication Studies) will lead a discussion about the film.

This film screening is sponsored by the Ackland Art Museum and the Interdisciplinary Program in Cinema, UNC-Chapel Hill.

New Book - Children, Families, and States: Time Policies of Childcare, Preschool, and Primary Education in Europe

Children, Families, and States: Time Policies of Childcare, Preschool, and Primary Education in EuropeDue to the demand for flexible working hours and employees who are available around the clock, the time patterns of childcare and schooling have increasingly become a political issue. The book compares the development of different "time policies" of half-day and all-day provisions in a variety of Eastern and Western European countries since the end of World War II. This innovative volume brings together internationally known experts from the fields of comparative education, history, and the social and political sciences, and makes a significant contribution to this new interdisciplinary field of comparative study.

Edited by Karen Hagemann (James G. Kenan Distinguished Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Konrad H. Jarausch (Lurcy Professor of European Civilization at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and Cristina Allemann-Ghionda (Professor of Comparative Education at the University of Cologne).

Challenges to a Union and Dilemmas of Diversity: The Euro as a Central, Contested Symbol in the EU

European Union Center of Excellence, University of PittsburghJuly 7-9, 2011 | European Union Center of Excellence at the University of Pittsburgh
This academic conference is co-organized by Mellon Professor Andrew J. Strathern and Dr. Pamela J. Stewart (Strathern), University of Pittsburgh, Department of Anthropology.

The monetary aspect of the European Union has recently come under severe stress, following global problems of finance and economics generally. The stress has impacted the central institutions of the EU and its monetary policies. It has also been accompanied by considerable social unrest and political protests in those countries most adversely affected. In the past there have been problems of legitimacy for the EU, especially vis-a-vis its constituent nation-states and their populations. The latest crises hit at the heart of this problem of legitimacy in terms of one of the core symbols at stake, that is the Euro currency itself, and the mechanisms for supporting it. News coverage tends to focus on the centralized aspects of such a problem, but it is vital to know how all this affects the practical lives, sentiments, and aspirations of people, including those in positions far from the centers of power or in countries at the edge of effective power. 

A grass-roots or bottom-up view of how the currency is viewed in a number of EU countries would provide valuable perspectives on EU problems in general. Examples could come from the Baltic States, e.g. Estonia, which is just about to enter the Euro currency structure, Belgium, Denmark which remains outside of the Euro currency, Poland, especially Greece, and potentially also Portugal or Spain. Views from the peripheries often tell us much also about centers, and the conference will aim to tap in to local, ethnographic, historical, and anthropological expertise to obtain pictures of these views of what has rapidly become a very urgent problem for the future of the EU as well as an important topic for anthropological analysis. Ireland is a significant case study, because of the difficulties which have emerged in Ireland after the collapse of the so-called Celtic Tiger economy.

  • In a Better World (Danish with English subtitles)
    Anton is a doctor who commutes between his home in an idyllic town in Denmark, and his work at an African refugee camp. In these two very different worlds, he and his family are faced with conflicts that lead them to difficult choices between revenge and forgiveness. Opens Friday, May 6th.
  • Potiche (French with English subtitles)
    It's 1977 and women's liberation is in the air but Suzanne (Catherine Deneuve) is still the self-effacing, elegant housewife of wealthy industrialist Robert Pujol (Fabrice Luchini). Pujol oversees his umbrella factory with an iron fist and is equally tyrannical with his children and 'trophy housewife.' When the workers go on strike and take Robert hostage, Suzanne steps in to manage the factory. To everyone's surprise, she proves herself a competent and assertive woman of action. Her new role throws her back in touch with union leader Gerard Depardieu, a romantic fling from the past that still has sparks. When Robert returns from a restful cruise looking to reassert himself, things get complicated. Directed with superb style by Francois Ozon ("Swimming Pool") and based on the popular 1970's French stage play by Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Gredy ("Cactus Flower").

  • Winter in Wartime (Dutch and German with English subtitles)
    Nazi-occupied Holland, 1945. In a snow-covered village, thirteen-year-old MICHIEL (Martijn Lakemeier) is drawn into the Resistance when he aids a wounded British paratrooper. Michiel's boyish sense of defiance and adventure soon turns to danger and desperation, as Michiel is forced to act without knowing whom to trust among the adults and townspeople around him. The wartime harsh reality encroaches on childhood innocence as Michiel confronts good and evil, courage and duplicity, and his own burden of responsibility.

A workshop co-organized by faculty at NCSU and UNC, titled Visual Culture and Identity-Narratives in the Making of Modern India, is scheduled for April 29-30, 2011. The first day of the workshop, hosted by UNC, will take place in Room 4003 at the FedEx Global Education Center, and the second day, hosted by NCSU, at Withers 140. This international, interdisciplinary workshop, which is open to the public, will feature presentations (with copious visuals) by a cohort of scholars who have been engaged in a sustained collaborative project to scrutinize processes of meaning-making imbricated with various types of visual culture relating to images, objects, and performance. The goal of the workshop is to engage dialogue on the inter-connectedness of seemingly diverse media and forms in South Asia which together work to shape identity— both individually and collectively, and to explore changing circumstances and processes within which S.A. visual culture is commodified and consumed.

This workshop is sponsored by the North Carolina Consortium for South Asian Studies, NCSU Department of History, NCSU Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, UNC Department of Asian Studies, UNC Carolina Asia Center, UNC Global Studies Initiative, and Duke-UNC Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies.
