Call for Papers: Jean Monnet Student Workshop, 13 May 2014
Istanbul Bilgi University Jean Monnet Chair of European Politics of Interculturalism invites the 3rd and 4th year BA students as well as the MA students studying social sciences in the fields of European Studies, Politics, International Relations, Anthropology, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Translation Studies and Law to submit their academic paper proposals on the following issues with regard to the Turkish accession process into the European Union: mobility, diversity, citizenship, minorities, identities, education, tolerance, intolerence, multiculturalism and interculturalism. As the emphasis of the Jean Monnet Chair of European Politics of Interculturalism is on the matters of social cohesion, the students are expected to discuss their works on the relevant issues, which are believed to be very relevant for the Turkey-EU Relations in general, and for the Turkish context in particular.
After the selection of the proposals, the Jean Monnet Chair will organize a one-day workshop at Istanbul Bilgi University with the participation of both academics and selected students who will present their works. Some of the papers will be published on the website of the European Institute and a few of them will be published in paperback form within the Working Paper Series of the Institute.
This workshop will be designed in the form of a round-table discussion where undergraduate and postgraduate students coming from Istanbul Bilgi University and other Universities in Istanbul could have more access to the debates introduced by experts on various issues such as mobility, diversity, citizenship, minorities, identities, education, tolerance, coexistence, cohabitation, multiculturalism and interculturalism. Please make sure that your one page proposals include debates, research and opinions about these issues and other related issues.
The workshop will be held under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ayhan Kaya, the Jean Monnet Chair of European Politics of Interculturalism at Istanbul Bilgi University. The Call for Papers is open to all the students including international and Erasmus students.
