7th Annual Graduate Workshop - Call for Papers
June 19, 2019
University Carlos III, Madrid
We seek applications from advanced graduate students working on comparative historical topics on Europe. The process is open to graduate students working in any discipline in the humanities and social sciences and using any methodology or approach. We are open to work that is concerned both with explaining past outcomes or that looks at the impact of past developments in explaining contemporary outcomes. Priority will be given to advanced doctoral students, but all graduate students at any level of preparation of their dissertation will be considered. Candidates may present work from their dissertations (typically a chapter), or other papers on which they are interested in receiving feedback. We anticipate inviting five to eight students to present their work in an all-day conference to be held at the Carlos III University of Madrid on June 19, 2019. Students will be required to provide their written work in advance and to make a short presentation. A faculty mentor will be assigned as discussant and provide in-depth feedback. Additional time will be available for a general discussion of the work with all assembled faculty and graduate students.
Please apply for the SEVENTH ANNUAL GRADUATE WORKSHOP on Comparative Historical Research on Europe at the Council for European Studies (CES), organized by the CES Research Network on the History of States and Regimes. This workshop brings together senior faculty in the field of European politics and advanced graduate students who study European politics and societies from a historical perspective. You will have a chance to present your work and receive feedback from a specific faculty member, as well as your colleagues. We encourage graduate students in different subjects (political science, sociology, history, anthropology) at all levels to apply. We anticipate selecting between five and eight graduate students. Students will be informed of the outcome of their application by the end of February.
This year's participants will include, among others, Giovanni Capoccia (Oxford), Michael Bernhard (University of Florida, Editor of Perspectives on Politics), Jan Kubik (UCL/Rutgers), Amel Ahmed (UMass Amherst), Robert Fishman (Madrid/Notre Dame), and Tiago Fernandes (Lisbon).
There is no fee to participate in the workshop, which will be followed by a dinner. Catered lunch will also be provided. Furthermore, all graduate students who participate in the CES conference, which will take place in Madrid immediately after the Graduate Workshop, on June 20-22, will have their conference fees waived. Please see the Call for Papers for further details.
