International Conference: Romanian Identity in the Wider European Context
Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Scholarship / Financial aid: housing and board provided

Date: November 21-23, 2008

Deadline: August 1, 2008

Open to: graduate students and researchers

Announcement follows

November 21-23, 2008
Babes-Bolyai University
Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Identity is a contemporary problematic approached almost everywhere in the world as post-modernism, regional integration, and globalization bring new challenges to national identities. We speak more and more about the identity crisis at various levels and multiple explanations, causes and implications were identified.
In this context, the Centre for Political Analysis launches a debate regarding the issue of Romanian identity in the European context, trying to answer questions like: Who are we, the Romanians? What is the substance of our national identity? What brings us together and what differentiates us from the rest of the EU and Europe? What can Europe provide and what can we provide? Do Romania and Europe face an identity crisis?

Given the topic, we choose a multi and inter-dissciplinary approach that results in eight broader topics that supplement two plenary sessions with lectures given by known researchers and activists in the field of (Romanian) identity. The workshops will allow participants to present their own works, to receive and provide comments, and to create networks with peers from other universities/departments.
We encourage graduate students and researchers to apply for one of the following topics:

1 Historical roots and contemporary components of Romanian identity
2 Identity and religion in the Romanian space
3 Romanian collective identity and social imagery
4 Romanian identity as reflected in art and literature
5 Forms of representing the Romanian identity in everyday life
6 Romanian self-perception and the perception of others
7 The influence of minorities on the Romanian identity
8 Romanian identity in an encompassing Europe

The application deadline is August 1, 2008. The selection decision will be communicated by August 15. Late applications are not considered.

The languages of the conference are English and Romanian.
The organizers provide housing and board for the days of the conference. There is no participation fee.
