14th International Society for the Study of European Ideas Conference:
"Images of Europe: Past, Present, Future"

August 4 – 8, 2014, Porto, Portugal

At a time when the Global Village is no longer a fiction but an undeniable reality, the growing number of problems that beset our world appear as novel, unprecedented challenges. How, then, can we grasp the scope and significance of the challenges that affect all aspects of our lives, our societies, and the world at large? How are we to characterize and study them? One way is to propose a historical context for approaching them in their multiplicity. It is customary to see the age of European expansion as the turning point in its development from pre-scientific Christendom into a modern civilization. Four centuries later—at the dawn of the twenty-first century—is Europe on the verge of another transformation? Can the lessons of its earlier transformation help in solving the problems we encounter today? We need to rethink the European tradition, how Europe mirrors itself and the rest of the world, and vice versa; to see its changing understanding of its own Greco-Roman legacy and Judeo-Christian religion; to gain a clearer picture of its reflections beyond its geographical borders. We need to rethink the role of fundamental European values, ways of thinking and doing, in shaping the New Europe and the Post-Colonial World. But to do so, we also need to understand the effects of globalization on the current academic methodologies we use in studying the changing images of Europe and the world.

The organizers of the 14th ISSEI Conference invite scholars from various academic fields to discuss the theoretical and practical challenges of globalization by characterizing their scope, effects and implications for Europe and beyond.

The conference is divided into five sections:

1: History, Geography, Science
2: Politics, Economics, Law
3: Education, Sociology, Women's Studies
4: Literature, Art, Music, Theatre, Culture
5: Religion, Philosophy, Anthropology, Psychology, Language
