European Unity and Division:
Regions, Religions, Civilisations
A Conference of the Centre for European Studies, Monash University,
in collaboration with the European University Institute
25-27 September 2006
Monash University Prato Centre, Prato, Italy
Recent events have highlighted the ambitions and difficulties of an integrative project that aspires to transcend long-standing cultural or geopolitical boundaries. The debate on divisions has moved beyond an initial focus on states and nations. It is now widely recognized that the making of Europe can only be understood as an intercivilisational process. The aim of the conference is to explore the complex and changing relationships between the sources of Europe’s diversity, with particular emphasis on long-term historical dynamics, but with some reference to present constellations.
Speakers include Johann Arnason, Miroslav Hroch, Hartmut Kaelble, Bo Stråth, Stefan Troebst and Peter Wagner.
