Resilience is the capacity to bounce back and innovate in the wake of extraordinary stress or crisis. Psychologists have long viewed resilience as a human character trait, but today, researchers increasingly consider it to be a quality of societies as well.
Thus, for its 23rd International Conference of Europeanists, the Council for European Studies (CES) invites proposals that reflect on Europe’s capacity for resilience. How will Europe’s economies confront slow growth and austerity? How will changing demography and immigration combine to affect European populations and cultures? How will secular Europeans confront the challenges of religious mobilization?
To be held in Philadelphia, PA, April 14-16, 2016, the conference will explore these questions and more. All proposals are due October 1, 2015.
