opheliaimgReluctance before the Crisis: Why Britain Never Adopted the Euro
Speaker: Ophelia Eglene, Political Science, EUC Visiting Scholar from Middlebury College

Speaker Bio: Ophelia Eglène holds an MA in European studies from the Institut des Hautes Etudes Européennes at the Université Robert Schuman in Strasbourg, France and a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University at Albany, State University of New York.  She did her postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for European Studies at Harvard University. Ophelia Eglène’s teaching interests include European integration, International Political Economy, and French politics.  She teaches in the Political Science Department and the French Department at Middlebury College.  Her research interests are the European Economic and Monetary Union, EU environmental policy, and the transatlantic relations. She is the author of Banking on Sterling: Britain’s Independence from the Eurozone which was published in 2011 by Rowman & Littlefield.  She is currently a visiting scholar at the European Union Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her Scholar-in-Residence position is supported in part through an EU Center of Excellence grant from the European Union.

Abstract : During the Maastricht Treaty negotiations in the early 1990s, the members of the European Union committed to launching the euro at the turn of the century which meant abolishing their national currencies and losing sovereignty in monetary policy. Britain had a more cautious attitude and negotiated an opt-out which would grant the UK the freedom to decide if and when to join the euro zone. Ophelia Eglene will present the empirical findings of her book Banking on Sterling: Britain’s Independence from the Eurozone, which show that the conflicting interests of the business and financial sectors had an impact on the deliberations of the British government on whether to adopt the single currency.

markimgEurope in Crisis? The Prospects for a Renewed EU-US Partnership

Videoconference with Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament

The European Union Center will co-host an interactive videoconference devoted to the current European economic crisis and future of EU-US Partnership, in which participants will be linked across several sites by video. The session will feature Martin Schulz, president of the European Parliament. Audiences at all sites will be able to ask questions. This event is open to the public.

Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament, will discuss the ongoing transformation of the European Union, explain why he believes Europe will emerge stronger from the current economic crisis and make the case for a close transatlantic partnership.
 
The economic crisis in Europe becomes the trigger for deeper political, fiscal and economic integration of the EU. The European Parliament has always been in the lead of the process towards more political union. It has always supported the view that the EU should be the indispensable partner of the US on the international scene and in facing global challenges, and has advanced this process through legislation, political control of the EU executive and also through the Transatlantic Legislators Dialogue. Most importantly, with the fiscal cliff and the eurozone crisis, both Europe and the US currently face a serious economic challenge. There is an urgent need for both to join forces to generate growth, to face up to common global challenges and, in doing so, to renew faith in the basic values of democracy and freedom which face strong resistance in the world of the 21st century.

Organized by the Center for Transatlantic Relations, Johns Hopkins University-SAIS.
Co-sponsored by the European Union Center.

donnaimgIntegrative Soundscapes: Building EU Community through Bulgarian Mumming Festivals & Folkloric Practice
Speaker: Donna Buchanan, Associate Professor of Musicology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Speaker Bio: A specialist in the musical styles of Bulgaria, the Balkans, and the CIS (especially Russia and the Republic of Georgia), Donna Buchanan’s scholarly interests include music as symbolic communication, music in aesthetic systems, music and power relations, music and cosmology, and music and social identity. Her additional teaching areas include ethnomusicological methodologies, ethnography, Mediterranean traditional and art musics, the musical cultures of indigenous peoples, and Russian and East European classical music, particularly Bartók, Musorgsky, and Shostakovich. Dr. Buchanan's articles have appeared in major journals of ethnomusicology, musicology, and East European studies. A faculty affiliate of the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center (REEEC) since 1998 and its Director since 2005, Professor Buchanan also established “Balkanalia,” the University of Illinois Balkan Music Ensemble, which performs regularly under the auspices of both REEEC and the School of Music. Her first book, an ethnomusicological monograph entitled Performing Democracy: Bulgarian Music and Musicians in Transition (University of Chicago Press, 2006), is the result of more than ten years of intensive ethnographic research in Bulgaria, funded by IREX, Fulbright, ACLS-SSRC, Wenner-Gren, and NEH grants. A second, edited volume, Balkan Popular Culture and the Ottoman Ecumene: Music, Image, and Regional Political Discourse (Scarecrow Press), is forthcoming later this year.

Abstract: This lecture explores what folkloric practice can tell us about the nature, impact, successes, and problems of ongoing European and transnational interchange in contemporary Bulgaria. Based on ethnomusicological fieldwork conducted in 2010 and 2011, Buchanan argues that newly-created and revitalized folkloric initiatives, such as the widespread, post-socialist popularization of mumming customs in a diverse hierarchy of adjudicated festivals, are playing an increasingly central role in forging community bonds and emergent senses of belonging throughout the country. Generically called kukeri, Bulgaria’s elaborately masked, mid-winter and early spring mummers once processed annually through their communities wearing fantastical costumes festooned with bells of various sorts, the resulting earsplitting clamor sonically repelling evil and misfortune. While this older prophylactic rite has been retained and is even undergoing a renaissance in some villages, today kukeri also participate in an expanding calendar of town, regional, national, and international competitive, juried, sonic and visual displays that reflect a cosmopolitan engagement with the European Union and transnational issues or endeavors on the one hand, and localized or even personalized assertions of civic pride, individual dignity, ethnic ties, community solidarity, nationbuilding, and touristic enterprise on the other. Because local subjectivities are articulated in part through differentiated bell types, timbral aesthetics, choreographically-related ringing techniques, and musical accompaniment, Buchanan suggests that the very soundscape of collaborative mumming activity can be understood as a sonic beacon, if not acoustemological enactment, of social integration and difference.

Co-sponsored by the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center (REEEC).

wolffimgChild Abuse in Casanova's Venice
Speaker:  Larry Wolff, Professor of History, NYU

Speaker Bio: Professor Wolff works on the history of Eastern Europe, the Habsburg Monarchy, the Enlightenment, and on the history of childhood. He tends to work as an intellectual and cultural historian. He has been most interested in problems concerning East and West within Europe: whether concerning the Vatican and Poland, Venice and the Slavs, or Vienna and Galicia. He developed the argument that Eastern Europe was "invented" in the eighteenth century, by the philosophes and travelers of the Enlightenment, who attributed meaning to a supposed division of Europe into complementary regions, Western Europe and Eastern Europe. He has analyzed Western perspectives on Eastern Europe as a sort of "demi-Orientalism," negotiating a balance between attributed difference and acknowledged resemblance. Considering Venetian perspectives on Dalmatia and Habsburg perspectives on Galicia, he has attempted to explore the meaning of "Eastern Europe" within imperial frameworks and the ideology of empire. His research on the history of childhood has included projects on child abuse in Freud's Vienna and child abuse in Casanova's Venice. His current research concerns Turkish subjects on the European operatic stage during the long eighteenth century, and analyzes musical and dramatic representations in the context of European-Ottoman relations.

Abstract: In the summer of 1785, in the city of Venice, a wealthy 60-year-old man was arrested and accused of a scandalous offense: having sexual relations with the 8-year-old daughter of an impoverished laundress. Although the sexual abuse of children was probably not uncommon in early modern Europe, it is largely undocumented, and the concept of "child abuse" did not yet exist. The case of Paolina Lozaro and Gaetano Franceschini came before Venice's unusual blasphemy tribunal, the Bestemmia, which heard testimony from an entire neighborhood—from the parish priest to the madam of the local brothel. Paolina's Innocence considers Franceschini's conduct in the context of the libertinism of Casanova and also employs other prominent contemporaries—Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Carlo Goldoni, Lorenzo Da Ponte, Cesare Beccaria, and the Marquis de Sade—as points of reference for understanding the case and broader issues of libertinism, sexual crime, childhood, and child abuse in the 18th century.

katsikasimgIslam and Sharia Law in the Making of Modern Greece (1832-1923)
Speaker:  Stefanos Katsikas, Lingustics, Director of Modern Greek Studies Program, U of I

Speaker Bio: Dr Katsikas joins the Modern Greek Studies program from Goldsmiths, University of London, where he has been Lecturer in History since 2009. Previous teaching appointments include University College London, and the University of Nottingham. He holds a BA in History from the Ionian University in Greece, an MA in Southeast European Studies and PhD in Social Science from University College London, UK. His research explores the interrelationship between democratization, post-conflict resolution and regional security in Southeastern Europe and is currently focusing on two projects, ‘Islam and Nationhood in Modern Greece (1832 to 1941), and ‘Transitional Justice after War and Dictatorship in Greece (1949-2000)’. He is the author of numerous articles on Modern Greek and Balkan history, editor of Bulgaria and Europe: Shifting Identities (London, 2010), and co-editor of State-Nationalisms in the Ottoman Empire, Greece and Turkey: Orthodox and Muslims, 1830-1945 (forthcoming in 2012). His recent book, Negotiating Diplomacy in the New Europe: Foreign Policy in Post-Communist Bulgaria (London, 2011) received a Scouloudi Publication Award from the Institute of Historical Research, University of London.

tassosimgThe Role of the Future CAP in Addressing Food Security Concerns
Speaker:  Tassos Haniotis, Director, Economic Analysis, Perspectives and Evaluations, DG for Agriculture and Rural Development, European Commission

Speaker Bio:  Tassos Haniotis previously held posts as Head of Unit in the Agricultural Policy Analysis and Perspectives unit and the Agricultural Trade Policy Analysis unit in the same Directorate General, as Member and subsequently Deputy Head of the Cabinet of former European Commissioner for Agriculture Franz Fischler (with respective responsibilities the preparation of the 2003 reform of the Common Agricultural Policy, and the agricultural chapter of the Doha WTO Round and the EU-Mercosur negotiations), and as the Agricultural Counsellor of the European Commission’s Delegation in the United States. He holds Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Agricultural Economics from the University of Georgia, USA, and a B.A. in Economics from the Athens University of Economics and Business, in his native Greece. He also spent six months as a visiting Fellow at the Centre for European Agricultural Studies, Wye College, University of London, where he studied EU-US agricultural trade relations in the Uruguay Round of GATT negotiations.

Abstract: The current debate on the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy coincides with one of the most challenging periods for world agriculture. For many, world agriculture is at a turning point, with the existing model of production having exhausted its potential and in need of major overhaul; others would remind us that similar fears were expressed in the past, but were soon afterwards allayed by some technological breakthrough that was driven in response to such challenges. Driven by concerns about the impact of the US drought on the level of agricultural and food prices, its link to the impact of biofuel policies, and several other issues, food security is of global concern.  However, it is also of concern in the European Union, since the EU is entrenched in global developments by being simultaneously the largest exporter and importer of agricultural products. In the EU policy debate, food security reflects the need to guarantee, long-term, its agricultural production in a way that is sustainable, territorially balanced, and minimally impacting on others.

snowmanimgSnowman's Land - Germany, 2010

From Music Box Films: In this wry German dark comedy, Walter (Juergen Rissmann) is a professional hitman who has just botched a job. Forced to leave the city, he reluctantly takes up an offer from eccentric crime boss Berger (Reiner Schoene) to protect his house (and young, pretty, free-spirited wife Sybille) in a remote region of the Carpathian Mountains. At Walter's side is Micky (Thomas Wodianka), his chatty, thrill-seeking old friend. After a freak accident, what seemed to be a nice, easy holiday job for the hapless pair soon becomes a comically nightmarish fight for survival. Stunning cinematography of the deceptively idyllic snowy landscapes and hardboiled, clever plot twists make SNOWMAN'S LAND an unmissable genre classic. In German with English subtitles.

17th Annual Graduate Student Conference, Georgetown University:  "Europe's Vision Twenty Years After Maastricht"
February 8 - 9, 2013 | Georgetown University, Washington, DC

Twenty years ago, when the Treaty of Maastricht was signed, the European Union took an innovative step forward, thereby renewing its commitment to European integration. However, it is once again facing both internal and external pressures to evolve and reformulate itself in light of new existential challenges facing it, be it political problems, economic exigencies, or social struggles. This conference will examine and question Europe’s efforts to maintain the momentum of the European project. Does a bold new step need to be taken? How is Europe seeking solutions in the face of 21st century challenges? What will the status of the European project be after twenty more years? Possible paper topics could include 1) Eurozone governments’ attempts to find a common economic solution to the crisis; 2) Historical perspectives on earlier challenges to the European project; 3) National or supranational responses to the rise of right-wing extremism in Europe; 4) The European Union finding its voice as a global actor and dealing with external crises. Abstracts should be 300-500 words (1-1.5 pages) in length and will be accepted only via email; please include a CV with your submission.
