Critical European Studies Workshop 2017

University of Frankfurt

23./24. June 2017

This is the fourth edition of a successful series of workshops put together by European scholars, students and activists with the support of CPERN, the Arbeitskreis kritische Europaforschung (AkE/AkG), transform! and the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung.

This year the CES workshop continues to challenge inconsistencies and blind spots that permeate European Studies and push the boundaries of the critical in the analyses of the area’s problematic. The themes discussed will include the political crisis of the EU and authoritarian modes of politics, the uprise of the new right, questions of climate, and problems of resistance and strategy in production and reproduction as well as in politics and on the streets.

The workshop provides a forum for scholars and activists to meet and discuss critical theoretical and empirical perspectives on the configuration of European capitalism, the EU and political resistance. Previous editions were held at the University of Greenwich in London 2016,at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (2015), and at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (2014).

In order to foster a constructive debate the workshop will avoid the 'usual' conference structure with individual paper presentations and foregrounds collective discussions instead. We will proceed on the basis of thematic block sessions, with each tabling a core text that all participants will have read beforehand. Each of the sessions in the workshop starts with a brief introduction, and 6 participants (to be announced) discussing and enhancing the perspectives developed in that session’s core text from the angle of their own research/activism. This is followed by a mumble where all participants share their ideas in small groups, after which the floor is opened for a plenary discussion.
