Spring 2013 Duke-UNC Consortium Middle East Conference
ReOrienting the Veil

Promo for UNC Veil Conference

Friday, February 22 - Saturday, February 23, 2013| UNC-Chapel Hill, FedEx Global Education Center, Nelson Mandela Auditorium

The 2013 Duke-UNC Consortium Conference focuses on Muslim women’s veiling practices in transnational contexts. The one and a half day conference is a forum for an interdisciplinary discussion of the cultural, religious, historical and political meanings of the Muslim headscarf. It is addressed to the NC scholarly communities, to undergraduate and graduate students as well as to NC K-12 and community college teachers and the public at large. This conference will provide NC K-12 teachers an opportunity for professional development and continuing education credits.

The goal of this conference is to provide a scholarly forum where nationally and internationally renowned scholars and artists will present their most recent research on veiling in the Middle East, in Europe and the USA. Each presentation will be followed by a response from a local faculty and a Q&A. The relatively small scale of the conference will offer plenty of time and space for discussion, as well as opportunities to learn about veiling from uncommon perspectives (fashion, art, poetry). The conference will also feature an exhibit of Todd Drake's Self Portraits of Muslim-Americans.

To learn more about the conference, please visit veil.unc.edu/conference.

Co-organized by Sahar Amer (UNC Asian Studies), Martine Antle (UNC Romance Languages and Literatures), Banu Gökarıksel (UNC Geography), Juliane Hammer (UNC Religious Studies), Shai Tamari (Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations), and Regina Higgins (Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations)

Tournées Film Festival at UNC
Screening of
L'Heure d'Été

The Tournées Festival is a program of FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which aims to bring contemporary French cinema to American college and university campuses.

Film still from L'Heure d'Ete

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 | 7 pm | UNC-Chapel Hill, FedEx Global Education Center, Nelson Mandela Auditorium

After the globe-spanning settings of his last three films, Olivier Assayas returns home for the mournful Summer Hours, examining a bourgeois French family trying to negotiate the past, present, and future. Assayas’s sincere, complex concern about cultural amnesia—the eroding of a nation’s heritage by the demands of the international economy—is rendered so deftly that the theme becomes one of larger, less class-specific importance.

Presented by the Department of Romance Languages at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

North Carolina German Studies Seminar & Workshop Series
Workshop: Creating Participatory Democracy: Green Politics in Germany since 1983

In March 1983, the West German Greens became the first new party to enter the Bundestag since the early days of the Federal Republic. This workshop, which will take place on the thirtieth anniversary of the Greens’ March 1983 entrance into the West German parliament, will use that occasion as an opportunity to raise new questions about the democratic visions and achievements of the Greens and their predecessors in the New Social Movements. Specifically, we will ask how Green politics challenged West German democratic praxis and question whether the Greens’ understanding of democracy changed when they entered parliament in 1983.

Thursday, February 28, 2013 | Duke University, The John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International Studies

4:30 pm: Graduate Reading Seminar with Belinda Davis (Rutgers University)

Andrei Markovits7:00 pm: Keynote address by Andrei S. Markovits (University of Michigan) - "Reflections on the German Left thirty years beyond the Greens' Entrance into the Bundestag"

Markovits will take the audience back to the evening of Sunday March 6, 1983, which he remembers as if it were yesterday. The triumphant Greens spent that night celebrating their entrance to the Bundestag in Bonn, then still the ensconced capital of the Federal Republic of Germany. It was also that evening that the study of this phenomenon was to become Markovits’s scholarly preoccupation for the ensuing decade. Even though he did not much like the German title of his book The German Left: Red, Green and Beyond (Oxford University Press); Grün schlägt Rot actually hit the nail on its head in that it expressed succinctly the gist of his argument: that Germany’s and Europe’s left agenda and politics had irretrievably mutated from its former red to its then-current green.

Friday, March 1, 2013 | UNC Chapel Hill, Institute for the Arts and Humanities, Hyde Hall

9 am - 4 pm: Panel presentations on "New Social Movements, Public Participation, and the Emergence of Green Politics" and "Out of the Streets and into the Bundestag: Participatory Democracy in Parliament"

4:30 pm: Roundtable on "The Green Challenge: Constructing Participatory Democracy for Post-Industrial Society"

Conferences and Calls for Papers

European Union Studies Association Asia Pacific Conference
Reassessing the EU-Asia Pacific Relationship In the Context of the EU Crisis

May 17 - 18, 2013 | Macau

The Euro-zone crisis is a perfect example of how, in an interconnected world, events within one region have effects that are felt throughout the world. Asia Pacific counties are significant exporters and importers to the Eurozone and EU. The stability of the Euro, depressed demand for manufactured goods and credit ratings have direct consequences in Asia Pacific counties.

Is there more continuity or change in the EU-Asia Pacific relationship? How do different groups perceive the EU and any changes in its relationship to the region? The aim of this conference is to investigate these questions from both a European and an Asia Pacific perspective. This conference will be multidisciplinary in focus. Academics and graduate students from a wide range of fields are encouraged to present at this conference, adding to a deeper understanding of the complexities of the EU-Asia Pacific relationship.

To learn more about the conference and the application process, please visit website or email yvonne.grosch@cantebury.ac.nz.

Theseus Doctoral Workshop 2013
The EU and the Global Crisis: Challenges to EU Governance, Policy Responses, and the Legitimacy Gap

May 21 - 22, 2013 | Sciences Po, Centre d’Etudes Européennes, Paris

THESEUS is a European network of thinkers, actors and ideas whose aim is to foster an open and constructive dialogue between academia and politics about the future challenges of Europe. This Theseus doctoral seminar will allow doctoral students to exchange ideas and discuss their research with their peers and senior academic colleagues.

From 2008, the global economic crisis has represented an unprecedented challenge to EU governance and European institutions since the completion of the monetary union. This doctoral seminar aims at exploring the institutional, political and policy challenges that the EU is facing at this critical juncture. It is intended to be inclusive and welcomes papers that address the topic from various angles – pressures on the institutional architecture or the EU political system; changes in EU governance or the decision-making process; transformation of the EU legal order; changing relations between members states, between national governments and EU institutions or citizens and the EU.

To apply, please send an abstract of 500 words describing the research questions investigated, data, methods, and expected or preliminary findings. Abstracts should be sent by Friday 15 March 2013 to Catherine Spieser, Sciences Po, CEE (Catherine.spieser@sciences-po.fr, subject “Theseus PhD workshop 2013”).

For more information about the workshop, please see flyer.

A Jean Monnet Research Workshop at Rutgers University
The Law and Politics of Multi-Level Governance

June 14 - 15, 2013 | Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ

When the European Communities were established, the European Court of Justice was composed of a handful of judges and staff members, there was very little European law to interpret, and few national courts actively participated in the community legal system. In the decades since, the scope of European law has expanded dramatically, the Court of Justice itself has grown into a much larger institution and the network of national courts that cooperate (and sometimes conflict) with the European Court in the interpretation and application of EU law has burgeoned. This workshop will bring together scholars of European legal integration, multi-level governance and comparative federalism to explore the construction of this multi-level legal system and the interactions between the national and EU level courts and the governments that comprise it.

The Jean Monnet program will cover the costs of travel (economy class) and accommodation for participants and will provide a modest honorarium. We ask each workshop participant to prepare a draft paper for the conference, which participants will be asked to revise into an article following the conference as part of a journal special issue.

Scholars interested in participating should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and an abstract of their proposed paper to Prof R. Daniel Kelemen at european@rci.rutgers.edu. For more information, please visit http://europaeuslaw.blogspot.com/2013/02/call-for-papers-law-and-politics-of.html.

UNC Program in the Humanities Seminar

Americans in Europe: Finding New Identities in Old World Cultures

Saturday, February 23, 2013 | 11 am - 4:30 pm | Tuition: $125 regular, $63 for teachers

Over the past three centuries, American politicians, intellectuals, and artists have turned to Europe as a source of inspiration. As travelers, exiles, tourists, and critics, Americans have journeyed across the Atlantic, using their view from abroad as an opportunity to critique Old World cultures by praising American mores, or alternately finding in the cafes and museums, parlors and parliaments of Europe much to be admired and imitated. The result of these travels and reflections was the forging of a new and distinctive American identity. In a series of three talks, historian Lloyd Kramer will consider these travelers century by century. The framework guiding our own travels will be the evolving sense of American selfhood – forged on European shores.

Lloyd S. Kramer is Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he also serves as chair of the History Department. He is the author of several books, including Lafayette in Two Worlds: Public Cultures and Personal Identities in an Age of Revolutions and Nationalism in Europe and America: Politics, Cultures, and Identities since 1775.

For more information on the seminar and on how to register, please visit http://humanities.unc.edu/programs/adventures-in-ideas/americans-in-europe2/
