It's groundhog day in Britain, where the European Union is concerned. The context changes, but the basic issues do not.

CfP: Colloquium UCL-Institut Français

17 October 2013

The Institut Français in London and University College London are launching a new 3-year cooperation in order to strengthen research links between UCL and colleagues from French universities.


UCL's European Institute is curating the first season under the theme of "In Place(s) of Memory”. The launch event, now scheduled on 11-12 December, is a 1.5-day Colloquium, which comprises a study visit by French academics, a public panel discussion and a reception to launch the new agreement on the first day, followed by a conference with UCL and French scholars on the second day.We are now inviting proposals from UCL academics to bring over a colleague from a French university, with whom they wish to strengthen research links and collaboration, for this Colloquium. Both academics are expected to present their work at the conference day on 12 December. All expenses will be covered. Proposals are invited from staff working on a wide range of topics and methodologies, and could include the legal and diplomatic implications of recent European "memory laws", the politics of heritage sites and conservation, literary or audiovisual negotiations of memory, or historiographies of war, violence and resistance, among many others. Throughout, we encourage constructively critical and theoretically informed discussions on remembrance cultures.

Deadline: 25 October 2013.
