September 2012 Archives

The submission portal for The 2013 Conference is now open! Submit your paper, session, or mini-symposium proposal today. The Council seeks proposals on all aspects of European history, society and politics, and particularly welcomes those that transcend disciplines, nationalities, and generations.

Submission deadline: October 8, 2012

Propose a symposium! Did you know that CES accepts proposals for 2-4 linked conference sessions on a common theme? Called a "mini-symposium," these linked sessions provide the opportunity to examine an issue in greater depth, are specially featured in the conference program, and are strongly favored by the Program Committee.

Karl Ove Knausgaard's controversial work Min Kamp I (My Struggle-First Book) is the first of a six volume autobiographical work, which caused a literary sensation in Norway and is now available in the U.S. Knausgaard writes about his family, the death of his alcoholic father and his struggle to come to grips with life and death in a raw and powerful way. When asked if he should have published the books he said. "If I had known then what I know now, then no, definitely no, I wouldn't dare. But I'm glad I did. And I couldn't have done it any other way. I will never do anything like this again, though, for sure. I have given away my soul, in a way."
