The Center for European Studies initiates, sponsors, and cosponsors a variety of multi-and-interdisciplinary conferences that address economic, social, political and cultural themes on contemporary Europe, European-American relations, and Europe's role in global affairs.

These conferences have several common objectives: they bring together leading national and international scholars; they enable faculty and graduate students from colleges and universities in the region and across the country to attend and benefit from such a leading scholarly event; they integrate social sciences, humanities and policy debates; they lead to publications that push forward the cutting-edge of scholarship; and, they include outreach elements that allow the broader community to enjoy education from nationally ranked university programs.

Upcoming Conferences and Workshops:

The Life of the Mind: Literature, Aesthetics, and the "sciences de l'homme," 1700-1900 Interdisciplinary and International Symposium.

April 16-18, 2015 at UW-Madison.
