Conference at Europa Universität Flensburg (EUF), November 30th - December 1st, 2023
Programme organisation: Professor Uwe Puetter, EUF, uwe.puetter-PleaseRemoveIncludingDashesfirstname.lastname@example.org
This international conference provides an opportunity for faculty and students at Europa Universität Flensburg (EUF) to debate together with internationally renowned scholars, the future of European studies as a field of inter-disciplinary teaching, research and international collaboration. Our external guests come from other universities with experience in delivering European studies degree programmes and research, including guest from the EUF partner institutions in Catania and Limerick.
The conference is structured around debates on key questions which determine the scope and ambition of European studies: What constitutes the field of European studies? Can we integrate different notions of Europe (cultural, political, historical, economic, legal) in meaningful ways? How do we deal with inter- and multi-disciplinarity in teaching and research? Is there a market for academic degree programs in European studies? How can we adapt and reconfigure our existing academic offerings alone and in partnership?
Four conference panels, which are all open to faculty, researchers, and students from EUF, will debate these questions. Each panel provides input from the panellists who will share their own professional experiences and thoughts about future pathways. Each discussion is opened up for contributions from the audience.
+++ The conference is open to the entire EUF community. We welcome colleagues and students to attend and participate. The event is financially supported by the Europaausschuss, the Fördergesellschaft der Universität Flensburg e.V. and the Interdisciplinary Centre for European Studies (ICES). +++
