>‘Europe and its Others’ is an international conference in the area of literary
>and film studies, covering the main European languages (English, French,
>German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish). It sets decipherers of
>Europe’s cultural traditions in interdisciplinary dialogue with historians,
>political scientists, social anthropologists, culture theorists, and
>international relationists. Through the mirroring representations of Europe’s
>cultural production, we aim to explore a nexus 
>of particularly rich and complex
>  self-and-other relationships:  diverse in space, multiple in its scenes,
>actors, dimensions;  and evolving in time.  We wish to understand something
>about how the Other-encounters, perceptions and relationships of Europe
>function - a ‘poetics’ of collective, culturally formed and informed
>‘identities’.
>
>We welcome proposals for papers (a 300-word abstract) to be submitted to the
>Convenors of the 10 symposia that are being 
>organised by 29 September 2006.  We
>hope to have a definitive programme in place by November.
>
>It is the intention of the organisers to edit a series of books, either region
>or discipline-based, using as a basis a selection of papers given at the
>conference. Each is intended to profit from, and to exploit diversely, the
>overarching perspectives explored.
>
>The Conference Registration (Full Board) 6-8 July 2007 will come to £200.00.

>Please address general queries to:
>Conference Organiser: Professor Will Fowler,

>
>Defining perceptions: getting a hold on ‘Europe’
>Convenor: Prof. Paul Gifford, [log in to unmask]
>This session retraces the movement of the entire conference, but here in the
>concerted search for an overview. It seeks to explore the diverse and evolving
>sense of 'Selfhood' implied by Europe's richly diverse gaze upon, and dealings
>with, its 'Others', and to question the images inscribed in their
>perceptions-in-return of Europe. Attending to how we see others and how they
>see us often throws up onto screen of awareness those implicit and invisible
>factors by which collective cultural personae are most profoundly formed,
>remembered and projected; the silent and all-conditioning realities which, in
>identity terms, are also the most organically constituting.
>Such defining perceptions may be sought and found in a broad range imaginative
>writing, film and cultural theory; and at all moments and phases of European
>culture history. The only qualifying condition of pertinence for this session
>is that these perceptions will lead us towards 
>an enlarged understanding of the
>cultural bond that is Europe. What is 
>'Europeanness', 'Europeanicity'? What does
>it owe to objective solidarities (like those of 
>geography, history, economic and
>political systems or life-style). How far is it a matter of common history and
>experience? How does it reflect the more elusive 
>awareness of bonding attitudes
>(values, ideologies, sacralities)? What versions 
>of are there or have their been
>of 'Europe'? And, as it becomes more 'creolised', is 'Europe' still a
>recognisable concept in the order of cultural identity?
>
>
>Agonistic encounters: war, civil war, and terrorism
>Convenor Dr Michael Gratzke: [log in to unmask]
>Focussing on interperceptions, this panel will explore representations of
>politically motivated violence within Europe and between Europeans and
>Non-Europeans. War, civil war and terrorism will be the cornerstones but
>contributions dealing with deportation, ethnic cleansing, revolutions, revolts
>and similar actions involving violence are 
>equally welcome. It is the expressed
>aim of this panel to instigate discussion about the interconnections between
>aesthetic and historical/political/social issues. Papers dealing with the full
>range of artistic expression and aesthetic representation will be considered.
>

>Translating Cultures: Europe and Latin America:
>Convenor: Dr Eleni Kefala, [log in to unmask]
>According to Homi K. Bhabha’s theory of cultural translation, cultures, when
>taken out of their “original” context, are transformed and misinterpreted by
>the Other. This panel looks at cultural encounters and interperceptions,
>focusing on the dislocations, displacements and appropriation of European
>cultures in Latin America as well as on European perceptions of Latin America.
>
>Where the borders lay - Europe through its neighbours’ eyes.
>Convenor: Dr Tanya Filosofova, [log in to unmask]
>This interdisciplinary panel will focus on 
>examining various aspects of cultural
>connections and political relations between 
>European countries and their closest
>East Slavonic neighbours: Russia, Ukraine and 
>Belarus from medieval times up to
>modern times. The panel will examine their perception of Europe and Europeans,
>for example, in folklore, literature, art, films, media and popular culture as
>well as complex political  historical contexts.
>
>Europe and its Others: Mediterranean Interperceptions
>Convenor: Dr Lorna Milne, [log in to unmask]
>This strand of the conference invites analyses of national and cultural
>interperceptions across and around the Mediterranean Sea, from the Middle Ages
>to the present day. How is the Mediterranean itself represented in the
>imaginaries of the littoral cultures? What 
>effects do such representations have
>on perceptions of Self and Other, seen from any given point around it? Does a
>degree of shared Mediterranean history and culture in any way transcend or
>mitigate perceptions of national Otherness, for example as between Spain and
>Morocco, or France and Algeria? Within the 
>littoral nations themselves, to what
>extent does the possession of a Mediterranean coastline inflect the sense of
>national cultural identity? And do interperceptions between Mediterraneans and
>northern Europeans have a distinctive shape of their own?
>>From accounts of the Crusades to the debate 
>>about Turkish membership of the EU;
>from archeologists' and adventure narratives to portrayals of contemporary
>migrations; from the imagery of 'orientalism' to the denunciation of colonial
>oppression, this panel will study cultural representations of Self and Other,
>as shaped by Mediterranean-ness, in art, text, film or other forms of
>discourse. Pairs or groups of papers addressing the same topic from different
>perspectives will be considered for inclusion: 
>please give full details if your
>contribution is proposed as part of a panel.
>
>Gender and the Other
>Convenor: Prof. Helen Chambers, [log in to unmask]
>Gender is widely seen as a paradigmatic signifier of Otherness: in the context
>of the conference theme of Interperceptions between Europe and its Others this
>panel will focus on the role of gender in relation to constructions of
>identity. Investigations of gendered discourses, whether of masculinity or
>femininity, will illuminate the ways in which writers and artists in other
>media have, consciously or otherwise, used notions of gender to represent
>perceptions of the relationship between themselves and Europe, or vice versa,
>from the Early Modern period to the present. Contributions on literary texts,
>film, historiography, cultural journals in any of French, German, Italian,
>Russian and Spanish - and including comparative discussions - are invited.
>These will enhance our understanding of the part gender has played in cultural
>responses to the awareness of difference. A range of theoretical and empirical
>approaches is welcome.
>
>Europe: The Alienated Self
>Convenor: Dr Claire Whitehead, [log in to unmask]
>This panel will focus upon literary portrayals of madness from the eighteenth
>century to the present day.  In post-Enlightenment Europe and beyond,
>depictions of alienation played a crucial role in charting reactions to the
>rise of rationalising civilisation.  Concomitantly, developments in medical
>science retrieved madness from its categorisation as a purely spiritual
>ailment.  This panel will welcome all critical approaches to alienation:
>historical, sociological, psychological, narratological, etc.  It will also
>particularly encourage comparative approaches in which literary accounts of
>madness from one or more countries (European and non-European) are discussed.
>
>Narratives of History and Memory:
>Remembering and Re-imagining the European Past(s) Across Media
>Convenor: Dr Belen Vidal, [log in to unmask]
>This session seeks papers on issues of history and memory with especial
>reference to the diverse modes of re-imagining the past in written and visual
>media. In which ways has the European past been structured as a collage of
>fragments, and a source of dialectic tensions 
>between Self and Other? Where can
>we locate the points of transnational dialogue 
>and exchange that would allow for
>the construction of a shared European past? . 
>This CFP should be of interest for
>researchers in the fields of literary studies, 
>cultural studies, film and media
>studies, as well as to those working on approaches to history and
>historiography across media. Possible topics may include but are not limited
>to:
>
>•	The past as Other: nearness versus distance
>•	Affective discourses around the European past
>•	Highbrow, lowbrow, or middlebrow? The 
>impact of popular culture versus/ in
>dialogue with European heritages.
>•	Alternative histories re-written from the present
>•	Constructing spatial and/or temporal displacement through narrative
>•	The Other’s claims on European history
>•	Remembering/Forgetting: Trauma and displacement
>•	The private and the public: intimate spaces as memory spaces
>•	National histories versus transnational memories
>
>
>Europe and Its Others: Political and Cultural Influence and Interference
>Convenor: Dr Will Fowler, [log in to unmask]
>This panel is concerned with the manner in which European ideas, trends and
>customs, as expressed in political and cultural terms, have influenced and
>interfered with those of other regions. It is also interested in the way that
>the ideas, trends and customs of Europe's ‘others’ have been equally
>influential in challenging and changing Eurocentric traditions. The focus of
>the symposium will be inter-disciplinary and open to studies concerned with
>regions from across the world. Papers will typically be expected to tackle
>issues such as the impact of European constitutionalist thought in its former
>colonies, the influence of ‘peripheral’ literary 
>movements on European fiction,
>or expressions of syncretism and hybridity that have surfaced both in and
>outside Europe.
>
>The Macro and the Micro: Europe and the Province
>Convenor: Dr Rossella Riccobono, [log in to unmask]
>This panel will look at writers and film 
>directors of the last thirty years who
>perceive themselves and their social, geographical, cultural and literary
>reality as regional, and therefore as marginal. Nevertheless in their work the
>province is often turned into a micro symbol of the larger culturally
>overpowering European tradition. How do these artists express their marginal
>self in terms of centrality? How is the 
>representation of the micro narrated as
>significant in relation to the macro? Issues of identity, nomadism, voluntary
>exile (both linguistic, cultural, and geographical), and travel will be
>explored.
