The European International Studies Association (EISA) invites proposals for workshops as part of EWIS 2018 to take place at University of Groningen, the Netherlands from 06-09 June 2018. These workshops allow scholars to engage in sustained, in-depth discussion with a diverse range of their peers from various institutions, countries, disciplines and career stages. EWIS has quickly proven to be a popular and productive format, ideal for preparing special issues, edited volumes or exploring new ideas, themes and directions.
EWIS 2018 will be held at University of Groningen, an increasingly important centre for IR in Europe. The university is situated in the heart of the city, which allows easy access to Groningen’s rich history (including as a seat of the Hanseatic league) as well as its dynamic and diverse contemporary life. Easily reachable by direct train from Amsterdam Schiphol airport – and many other cities – Groningen combines the accessible charm of a small university town with the outlook and diversity of a big city.
With the EWIS 2018 theme ‘The Return of Politics to International Relations’ we particularly invite workshops that zoom in on the manifold ways in which knowledge produced in the field of International Relations is increasingly politicized, considered as inherently political and confronted with ongoing efforts to reconceptualise politics and the political beyond the confines of IR.
However, while we particularly encourage submissions addressing this theme, we are open to proposals on specific, yet appealing themes from across the broad field of international studies. EWIS can accommodate up to 25 workshops with 14-18 participants in each. We are seeking proposals for workshops on specific themes within the broad field of International Studies from potential convenors who would organize and chair the workshops. The proposals should include:
- Workshop title
- Description of workshop topic and its relevance (max 500 words)
- An indication of possible paper topics and potential participants (1-2 pages)
- A short CV of each workshop convenor (max 1 page each)
Maximum of two convenors of each workshop. Workshop convenors must be current EISA members. They will pay a reduced participation fee and will be invited to the workshop convenors’ dinner. They will, however, fund and arrange their own travel and accommodation.
