24th International Conference

University of Glasgow, UK, July 12-14, 2017
Organized by the Council for European Studies

In 2017, CES will host the 24th annual International Conference of Europeanists at the University of Glasgow from July 12-14. Each year, CES brings together more than a thousand scholars and policy experts from dozens of countries to discuss the most pressing issues that Europe faces. The 2017 conference focuses on sustainability and transformation. For three days, experts will convene in Glasgow to present and debate new research on critical, timely topics such as Brexit vote, the immigration crisis, the stability of the Eurozone, the resurgence of populist political movements, and the opportunities and challenges of technological advances in artificial intelligence and data gathering. The conference also features a set of exhibits, digital and print advertising, and numerous sponsored special events.

CES encourages a global, multidisciplinary approach to the study of Europe and supports cutting-edge research on these topics at institutions on four continents. CES’ strong presence on both sides of the Atlantic allows it to coordinate a range of events, publications, research networks, and grant-making activities. From its offices in New York (Columbia University in the City of New York) and Barcelona (the Institut Barcelona D’Estudis Internacionals), CES supports innovative work in the humanities and social sciences through highly competitive pre-dissertation and dissertation completion grants, as well as numerous publication and travel prizes that highlight critical research on Europe. Its members enjoy participation in a number of themed research networks that bring together scholars despite disciplinary, generational, or national borders.
