inside/OUT: A European Conference for the Humanities 2017

inside/OUT: A European Conference for the Humanities 2017

Simon Robinson's picture

In April 2017, the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) is hosting a European Conference for the Humanities on behalf of the European Consortium of Humanities Institutes and Centres (ECHIC). The Conference will comprise plenary presentations, panel paper sessions, lightning talks and roundtable reflections as well as opportunities for networking. It aims to probe some of the most pressing issues facing the humanities as academic disciplines and interdisciplinary fields. To do this we will place the motif of inside/OUT at the centre of our enquiries. Using this theme, we hope to show that humanities disciplines are not passive observers of the social and economic lifeworld, but are themselves transformative and disruptive—in productive ways.

Date: 5-7 April 2017

Venue: Edinburgh (UK)

Maria Górna's picture

Dear MCAA Members,

We cordially invite you to a local meeting of the MCAA Polish Chapter to socialise, network, and get to know each other better.

We will talk about science, projects, collaborations, the current national setting, but also discuss how to coordinate local activities.

This event is the launch of the new Polish Chapter initiative to integrate local member communities through informal, distributed meetings over a coffee, beer or pizza. We will hold these meetings irregularly in various Polish cities - with Kraków, Wrocław and Gdańsk on the agenda soon.

We include some sponsored drinks for MCAA members, so please join in!

If you plan on attending, please indicate this using registration on this event form (option available after login), so that we can prepare for the number of participants.

Hope to see you there!

Best wishes,

Maria (Polish Chapter Chair).

The EU and Human Rights: findings from the FRAME project

Simon Robinson's picture

The FRAME project on the EU and human rights is coming to an end in April 2017. Since its launch in May 2013, the project has yielded a wide array of research findings which were publicised in many different forms: comprehensive reports, policy briefs, academic articles, blogs, conferences, workshops, briefings, a MOOC, etc. In total, more than 8000 pages of research output were published, and close to 100 events organised across the EU, and the world, as part of the project. Do not hesitate to visit the FRAME web-site to browse through our output.

On 26th April 2017, you are invited to FRAME’s final conference at the Palace of the Academies in Brussels. EU officials, practitioners, academics and civil society representatives will gather to discuss themes linked to the EU and human rights during keynote speeches, panel discussions and a high-level roundtable.

This final conference will also be the occasion to present the FRAME outcome document, which will outline the project’s main findings and list key policy recommendations.

With keynote addresses by Morten Kjaerum (Director of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights), Herman Van Rompuy (Former President of the European Council) and Stavros Lambrinidis (EU Special Representative on Human Rights). Other speakers include Olivier de Schutter (Professor of Law, University of Louvain), Manfred Nowak (Professor of International Law and Human Rights, University of Vienna), Karen Smith (Professor of International Relations, London School of Economics) and Prof. Jan Wouters (Professor of International Law and International Organizations, KU Leuven) and many more.
