CfP: Eclectic meanings of party membership in Southeastern Europe

SCOPE International conference of Political Research, Department of Political Science, University of Bucharest, 27-29 June 2014 
(www.scienceofpolit ics.eu http://www.scienceo fpolitics. eu/) 

The literature on post-communist parties highlighted the ab origine disenchantment with politics (either in terms of identification or membership) and a drastic decline in the electoral turnout. In parallel, parties seemed to have, more or less voluntarily, downgraded their classic expressive and representative functions (Van Biezen et al. 2012) and cemented, as in the Western democracies&# 39; case, their bond to the State and their role as governing agencies. Still, far from being uniform, the configuration of party grassroots in post-communist Europe testifies to a plurality of anatomies and various meanings of party membership roles (Spirova 2005, Ionascu and Soare 2012). Besides, the enrolment figures, the various organisational arrangements unveil various definitions of party members: their codification according to party laws, parties' statutes, etc.

CfP: Applied Modern Languages at Lumina - University of South-East Europe

The program of Applied Modern Languages at Lumina - University of South-East Europe was created with the aim to circulate, cross and encourage exchanges between the Western cultural and linguistic space, represented by the English and French languages, on the one hand, and the emerging South - Eastern European space, on the border between continents and cultures. It is this positioning, between the East and the West, between the North and the South, between religions that represents the hallmark of our program, open to students from all over
the world. Out approach is supported by the Enlightenment paradigm that has been encouraging us for nearly two centuries and a half to venture out.

CfP/J: Special issue on governance and risk in banking, Journal of Economics and Business Special Issue

Editor: Jens Hagendorff, University of Edinburgh

The Journal of Economics and Business invites submission of papers that deal with topics related to governance and risk in banking.

OVERVIEW: The financial crisis that started in 2007 has brought issues relating to corporate governance and risk-taking in the banking industry to the attention of researchers, policymakers and the wider public. Banking is increasingly becoming an industry with separate corporate governance standards from other industries. In the UK, a review conducted by Sir David Walker has made recommendations on board arrangements and the qualifications of board members as well as on the compensation arrangements of UK financial firms. Similarly, the Netherlands has had a Banking Code in place since 2010 that contains guidelines on the make-up of bank boards, including the qualification and training of board members and their remuneration. Additionally, US
compensation guidelines for CEOs and other senior executives at large banks come close to dictating compensation structures in banking. Consequently, we solicit papers that are in any area of governance and risk in the banking industry.

CfP: Annual Conference of the Commission on Urban Anthropology

Annual Conference of the Commission on Urban Anthropology [CUA-IUAES] 
Title: Dreamed/planned cities and experienced cities 
Venue & Date: University Jean Monnet, St Etienne, France, 8-11 July 2014 

Call for Workshops 

Nowadays, there is a growing interest among anthropologists to do urban research that looks at both the government of the city and the  dwellers' representations of the city (Lefebvre). Many ethnographies 
have thus focused, on the one hand, on urban policies and, on the other hand, on social practices. The Urban Anthropology Series - published by Ashgate - and the works published in the Journal Urbanities are good examples of this growing trend among anthropologists, which is consistent with the major transformation of 
cities around the world: gentrification, competition between cities, urban sprawl, mobility, heritagization, etc.. Urbanity is paradoxically claimed as one of the main attributes of Modernity at a time when cities are diluting and disseminating.
