Call For Papers

Following three successful international conferences (2016, 2018 and 2022) Hellenic American University announces the 4th International Europe in Discourse Conference. This Conference too aims at exploring Europe through all its constitutive dimensions, history, culture, geography and values. The objective is to create an international and interdisciplinary platform for discussion on how Europe is understood and constantly shaped through aspects that can be theoretically approached and empirically identified. EID IV remains faithful to the conviction that there should be a dialogue between those who talk about Europe and analyze it and those who “do” Europe and shape it.

We, therefore, welcome contributions from early and late career scholars, graduate students, political analysts, discourse analysts, linguists, communication experts, diplomacy and security experts, public leaders, historians, economists, philosophers, policymakers and experts from a variety of fields to engage with the Conference themes and submit a contribution along the formats accepted.
