May 29, 2011 - June 14, 2011

Registration Deadline 3/15/2011. Register today!

Through this sixteen-day accredited academic Expedition, you will create an opportunity to participate in a unique learning environment encompasing a cross-cultural experience, an direct introduction to your professional field, and an overview of the dynamics involved in community participation throughout stages of creating and managing an International Peace Park.

Course Instructors include: Saleem Ali, an expert in environmental conflict resolution and how ecological factors can promote peace. He is a Professor at University of Vermont's Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, and the Founder and Director of the Institute for Environmental Diplomacy and Security. Todd Walters, an expert in environmental peacebuilding and experiential learning; and the Founder and Executive Director of International Peace Park Expeditions.

You will be academically challenged through readings, journal entries, and a group project centered around this innovative experiential learning curriculum. Additionally, students will participate in meaningful cross-cultural interactions while cross-border trekking in the Balkans' remote alpine landscapes.

You will take part in lectures and discussions with guest lecturers ranging from experts, practitioners and professionals within fields of your interest - addressing issues of sustainable forestry management, biodiversity surveys, eco-tourism plans, development and infrastructure planning, environmental conservation, water resource management, peacebuilding initiatives, and cross-border projects.

At the culmination of the course, you will have established a strong understanding of the multi-disciplinary issues converging around International Peace Parks, and a working recognition of the interplay between local communities, broader culture, international development, environmental conservation and peacebuilding initiatives. Within this context, you will have an opportunity to build a professional network before graduation, making connections in government agencies, international development agencies, as well as international, national, and local NGO's working on the ground.

Course Objectives

1. Gain an understanding of International Peace Parks - how they are created, managed and utilized as a tool of environmental conservation, community based development and cross border collaboration.

2. Observe and interact with a cross-discipline field of professionals - the actors and their relationships.

3. Explore relationships between eco-tourism, community based development and environmental conservation, international development and conservation.

CfP: Adjusting to Europe, Kaunas, Lithuania, 29-30 August 2011

European Centre for Minority Issues (Flensburg, Germany) and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (Baltic Office) are pleased to invite paper proposals for the conference
*Adjusting to Europe: Institutional Legacies of Communism and Ethnocultural Diversity*
on August 29-30, 2011 in Kaunas, Lithuania

The impact of the European norms, standards and policies of minority rights protection on the countries of Central Eastern Europe and in the states of the former Soviet Union have been intensely studied. However, the institutional dynamics inhereted from the Soviet nationalities policies have barely been in a focus of interest. The conference asks how institutional legacies of the past impact on policies supporting minority communities in the new Europe since a range of the formerly communist states have accessed the European Union. Much academic and policy-oriented research has been done on the impact of European norms and institutions on the post-communist democratisation, yet none on the reverse influence.

Now, 20 years following the demise of the Soviet states and its nationalities policies, we ask how the European political institutions reflect the experiences of the communist era and whether, and if so how, the institutional dynamics are reflected in the EU relations with its postcommunist neighbours. The issues to be addressed include - but are not limited to - interpretations of social equality, ethnocultural development, ethnic representation and autonomy, all addressing the "systemic hypocrisy" in coping with ethnicity-based claims. We are explicitly interested in contributions assessing the convergence and/or conflict between the communist ethnic policies and the minority protection standards in contemporary Europe.

The conference seeks to bring young and established scholars working on issues pertaining to contemporary ethnic policies in postcommunist states. The conference will feature the following panels:
1) Institutional support for cultural diversity;
2) Norms and policies of minority protection;
3) Practical challegenes in diversity management;
4) Nationalities policy and minority rights regime;
5) Territorialisation of minority: USSR vs EU;

The conference seeks to raise questions about the role of communist institutional and ideological legacies in contemporary European minority politics. Preference will be given to theory-driven papers that assess norms and policies of minority accomodation, non-discrimination and cultural diversity diachronically. A comparison of communist states' - understood here as republics of the USSR and SFR of Yugoslavia, as well as the European states, members to the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance - "nationalities policies" with the instruments of minority proteciton in contemporary Europe is highly encouraged.

Please send your paper proposal of 500-600 words as an email (attachements will be discarded) to Timofey Agarin t.agarin@ecmi. de by April 4, 2011. Authors whose papers are selected will be notified by April 11 and will be receiving further particulars on the conference. All papers selected must be submitted in their draft version by July 31 to allow a prompt publication as a special issue of the ECMI's Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues (www.ecmi.de/publications/jemie) by the end of 2011.

CFP: The Anatomy of Marginality, Special Issue of 'The European Legacy"

Final Call for Papers: THE ANATOMY OF MARGINALITY

A Special Issue of “The European Legacy”

Guest Editors: COSTICA BRADATAN (The Honors College, Texas Tech University) & AURELIAN CRAIUTU (Department of Political Science, Indiana University, Bloomington)

“The European Legacy” invites contributions to a special issue devoted to the study of marginality, broadly defined. The issue will feature at the outset a conversation on marginality with WENDY DONIGER (Mircea Eliade Distinguished Service Professor of History of Religions, University of Chicago), RAMIN JAHANBEGLO (Professor of Political Science, University of Toronto), GORDON MARINO (Professor of Philosophy, St Olaf College) and GIUSEPPE MAZZOTTA (Sterling Professor of the Humanities for Italian, Yale University).

“The European Legacy,” published by Routledge, is the official journal of the International Society for the Study of European Ideas:

http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/10848770.asp

This special issue is scheduled for 2012.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Academic disciplines have been routinely dominated, both in terms of research agendas and dissemination practices, by a concentration on a relatively small number of “canonical” thinkers and writings. A tacitly accepted “principle of economy” makes that, in our research, we (almost) always gravitate toward “canonical” authors, texts, and themes. Teachers, for instance, tend to persuade their students to pay attention to the “central” aspects of any given problem and stay away from the allegedly “marginal” or “peripheral” ones, which are thus deemed to be either too risky or otherwise unworthy of sustained consideration. Not surprisingly, we end up spending most of our time concentrating on what the academic community considers to be the “core-issues” in various academic disciplines, just as we tend to focus our projects on the study of various “mainstream” authors, “central” themes and “canonical” texts. As a result, our systems of reference – in scholarship, but also in every-day life, morality, art, politics and religion – have come to rely heavily on the assumption of an intrinsic superiority of the “center,” the “canonical” and the “mainstream,” to such an extent that “marginal” and “peripheral” are epithets customarily used with (and perceived as carrying) pejorative connotations.

This special issue of The European Legacy seeks to challenge this assumption. We surmise that there is a great deal of vitality and richness to be found both at the margins – wherever they may be and wherever they may be placed in relation to the centers of power – and in theorizing on marginality as a philosophical, literary, political, and hermeneutic trope. The center (or the core) exists only in relation to the margins: it is in fact from the margins that the center receives its recognition (there can be no center without margins), just as it is from the vitality of the margins that the center extracts its resources. Therefore, it is only by looking at things (events, cultures, ideas, texts, political and social processes) dialectically – that is, from both the perspective of the center and that of the margins, and especially as a result of the center-periphery dynamic – that we can better understand their role in the creation and dissemination of knowledge.

The central aim of this project is to offer a reconceptualization of marginality, by exploring how it is perceived, constructed, and deconstructed, and by examining the role it plays in the dynamic of knowledge production across humanistic disciplines. We propose to consider marginality in a broad sense, e.g., the marginality of an idea, of a scholarly topic or theme of research, of a methodology or way of thinking, as well as in relation to “marginal” thinkers, cultures and schools of thought. In proposing this reconsideration of marginality we also hope: 1) to cast new light on marginality as a philosophical theme in its in own right – that is, as a subject worthy of sustained theoretical reflection; 2) to revive interest in some key themes and authors of great merit whose rediscovery or retrieval from oblivion might enrich and enliven debates in fields such as philosophy, comparative literature, political theory, sociology, history, anthropology, and religious studies; and 3) to challenge the “centro-centric” obsessions and parochial self-sufficiency that sometimes creep into the academic literature produced within these fields.

We believe that a critical and interdisciplinary study of marginality (broadly defined) can contribute to the emergence of a new epistemic ecumenism allowing us to understand the multifarious ways in which our knowledge of the world is produced, structured and disseminated. The reconsideration of marginality – of marginal themes, authors and texts, of non-canonical ways of thinking, methodologies and epistemic cultures – can also help us better understand ourselves as members of various scholarly communities. Finally, in the long run, a sustained engagement with marginality can make us intellectually richer, culturally more open, and politically more tolerant.

Here are some of the questions that we invite potential contributors to consider: What is marginality and how should this concept be studied? How, and on what grounds, something comes to be considered “marginal” or “central”? Is marginality (or centrality, for that matter) some “quality” intrinsic to an idea, topic or author? If yes, what is it exactly? If not, is marginality (centrality) a matter of context and circumstance, or something else? How is it that an originally “marginal” idea, theme or author come to acquire mainstream status? Is it simply a matter of “passing the test of time,” of chance, a matter of “the right time and the right place”? Is the fact due to some form “epistemic luck”? Reversely, how exactly do ideas, topics, and authors go “out of fashion” and become marginal? How does one’s “anxiety of marginality” shape one’s thinking? What is the role of marginality in the formation of the epistemic canon? How do the center and the margin communicate with each other? How exactly does the periphery change, challenge and redefine the body of knowledge that is produced by/at the center?

We invite submissions addressing several modes of marginality:

• epistemic marginality (the marginality of an idea, concept, theory, methodology)
• auctorial marginality (marginality of an author in relation to the mainstream)
• cultural marginality (local research cultures, marginal research programs/agendas)
• geographic marginality (peripheral places/cultures and their relationship to the metropolitan centers).

SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES:

Deadline for submissions: March 31, 2011

Length: 6000 words (including notes)

After an initial editorial screening, all articles and reviews submitted to “The European Legacy” will undergo a peer-review evaluation. Manuscripts, typed double-spaced, should be submitted to the Guest Editors as e-mail attachments. The author’s full address should be supplied as a footnote to the title page. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition.

Contributions should be submitted via e-mail to: bradatan@hotmail. com and acraiutu@yahoo. com (with “For the marginality special issue” in the subject line). Please allow approx. 4 months for the review process and editorial decisions. Receipt of materials will be confirmed by email. Unless otherwise noted in this Call for Papers, the Instructions for Authors on the journal’s webpage are adopted for this issue:
