Europe and its Worlds: Cultural Mobility in, to and from Europe

Call for papers/Appels à contribution (12 topics/ 12 thèmes):

Radboud University Nijmegen, 16-18 October 2013 

The Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen jointly organize an international conference on their common research theme ‘Europe and its Worlds’. At the core of this theme is the question of how Europe has always consisted of different worlds, how it differs from the rest of the world, and how it interacts with other worlds. This conference specifically addresses the many ways in which cultural mobility impacts on European culture, past and present. The notion of cultural mobility raises new questions on issues of persistance, change and interaction, as Stephen Greenblatt argues in Cultural Mobility: A Manifesto (2010). The aim of this inter- and multidisciplinary conference is to open the discussion on how the European slogan ‘unity in diversity’ can be related to cultural mobility. The conference consists of a series of selected panels on topics ranging from antiquity to the present.
