Conference Description:

The Euroacademia First Graduate Workshop ‘Doing Research on Europe and the EU: Topics, Puzzles and Challenges’ aims to bring together graduate students, doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in an interactive platform for sharing, disseminating, and assessing ongoing research focused on topics of specific saliency in understanding past, current or future developments in Europe or connected to the European Union. The workshop is addressed to young researchers and creates a special opportunity for them to share their work with their colleagues but also to have a chance to expose their work to public scrutiny and receive valuable feedback both from other participants and professors and experts that will act as advisors and discussants for specific work-groups divided by topics and/or methodology.

The Graduate Workshop will create an interactive setting where young researchers can present, compare and assess the developments of their accomplished work or in progress ones based on small groups divisions that foster interaction among similar topical concerns yet also the possibility to enlarge their own research vision by comparing it with the endeavors of their colleagues and adding to that the benefits of the shared expertise coming from invited experienced academics. Small scale work-groups and larger scale workshops for all the participants will also bring on the table the possibility of brainstorming and sharing the ups and downs of research work, emerging puzzles and methodological challenges, meta-analytical tools and cooperative frameworks that can strengthen future collaborative work among the participants.

Graduate students, doctoral candidates, post-doctoral and young researchers are welcomed to submit an abstract. Representatives of INGOs, NGOs, Think Tanks and activists willing to present their work with impact on or influenced by specific understandings of the European Union are welcomed as well to submit the abstract of their contribution. There are no restrictions of field of studies or expertise and we welcome students coming from various backgrounds like European studies, political science, critical studies, cultural studies, history, anthropology, social psychology, semiotics, philosophy, sociology and wider and inclusive interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary approaches that contribute to a better understanding of the ‘self-organizing vertigo’ (Edgar Morin) of the European realm. The workshop aims to be diverse and interactive in nature yet it will be organized to best fit the interests and the expected outcomes of the participants.

Abstracts will be reviewed and the participants are selected based on the proven quality of their abstract. The submitted paper for the conference proceedings is expected to be in accordance with the lines provided in the submitted abstract. It is expected to be an original paper, an article to be forwarded for publication, a chapter or an articulate summary of a dissertation defended or in progress. Prospective participants can also make proposals for thematic workshops to be included in the program and attended by participants with similar shared interests. The event is envisaged as a flexible one in order to best answer and fit the participants’ needs.
