Call for Papers
"The two Europes"
RICHIE’s third international graduate student conference
University Suor Orsola Benincasa – Naples
14-15 December 2007
Now in the third years of its existence, the RICHIE association [Réseau International de jeunes Chercheurs en Histoire de l’Intégration Européenne/International Research Network of Young Historians of European Integration] is happy to present the call for papers for its annual conference.
The success of the first two conferences was further proof of the importance of organising events that give PhD students and young scholars an opportunity to present their research.
This year, the conference will be organised by l’Istituto Italiano di Scienze Umane (SUM) in cooperation with the University of Padova and the University Suor Orsola Benincasa. It will take place on 14th and 15th December 2007 in Naples in the University Suor Orsola Benincasa.
The history of European integration is often studied – with reason – from a perspective that emphasises the image of a Europe sharing a common cultural, legal, historical and economic heritage. Yet, Europe’s history in the last two hundred years is also one of numerous dichotomies and of religious, economic, political and ideological differences. These are divisions that often go beyond the national frame.
For this third conference, we want to analyse the history of European integration from the angle of these different dichotomies and from a long-term perspective. This will enable us to re-open the debate about the time period of the process of European integration.
The theme will be analysed in 4 sessions that will focus on:
1. The two Europes : Continuity and breaks in the 19th
and 20th Century.
2. Europe as a dream - Europe as a reality.
3. Political Europe(s) – Economic Europe(s).
4. Europe as a Power – Europe as a tool of Power
