Re-Inventing Eastern Europe, Belgrade, Serbia, 27 – 28 January 2017


Call for Papers

The Sixth Euroacademia International Conference

Re-Inventing Eastern Europe

 

27 – 28 January 2017, Belgrade, Serbia

 

Deadline for Paper Proposals: 10 December 2016

 

Conference Description:

The Sixth Euroacademia International Conference 'Re-Inventing Eastern Europe' aims to make a case and to provide alternative views on the dynamics, persistence and manifestations of practices of alterity making that take place in Europe and broadly in the mental mappings of the world. It offers an opportunity for scholars, activists and practitioners to identify, discuss, and debate the multiple dimensions in which specific narratives of alterity making towards Eastern Europe preserve their salience today in re-furbished and re-fashioned manners. The conference aims to look at the processes of alterity making as puzzles and to address the persistence of the East-West dichotomies.

 

Not a long time ago, in 2010, a British lady was considered bigoted by Gordon Brown upon asking 'Where do all these Eastern Europeans come from?'. Maybe, despite her concern with the dangers of immigration for Britain, the lady was right in showing that such a question still awaits for answers in Europe. The ironic thing however is that a first answer to such a question would point to the fact that the Eastern Europeans come from the Western European imaginary. As Iver Neumann puts it, 'regions are invented by political actors as a political programme, they are not simply waiting to be discovered'. And, as Larry Wolff skillfully showed, Eastern Europe is an invention emanated initially from the intellectual agendas of the elites of the Enlightenment that later found its peak of imaginary separation during the Cold War.

The Economist, explicitly considered Eastern Europe to be wrongly labeled and elaborated that 'it was never a very coherent idea and it is becoming a damaging one'. The EU enlargement however, was expected to make the East – West division obsolete under the veil of a prophesied convergence. That would have finally proven the non-ontologic, historically contingent and unhappy nature of the division of Europe and remind Europeans of the wider size of their continent and the inclusive and empowering nature of their values. Yet still, 20 years after the revolutions in the Central and Eastern European countries, Leon Mark, while arguing that the category of Eastern Europe is outdated and misleading, bitterly asks a still relevant question: 'will Europe ever give up the need to have an East?'

Eastern Europe was invented as a region and continues to be re-invented from outside and inside. From outside its invention was connected with alterity making processes, and, from inside the region, the Central and Eastern European countries got into a civilizational beauty contest themselves in search of drawing the most western profile: what's Central Europe, what's more Eastern, what's more Ottoman, Balkan, Byzantine, who is the actual kidnapped kid of the West, who can build better credentials by pushing the Easterness to the next border. A wide variety of scholars addressed the western narratives of making the Eastern European other as an outcome of cultural politics of enlightenment, as an effect of EU's need to delineate its borders, as an outcome of its views on security , or as a type of 'orientalism' or post-colonialism. Most of these types of approaches are still useful in analyzing the persistence of an East-West slope. The region is understood now under a process of convergence, socialization and Europeanization that will have as outcomes an 'ever closer union' where the East and the West will fade away as categories. Yet the reality is far from such an outcome while the persistence of categories of alterity making towards the 'East' is not always dismantled. The discourse on core-periphery, new Europe/old Europe is rather gaining increasing ground in the arena of European identity narratives often voiced by the EU.

 

The conference is organized yet by no means restricted to the following panels:

The Agenda of the Enlightenment: Inventing Eastern Europe ~ Europe East and West: On the Persistence of the Division ~ Reviewing Alternative Modernities: East and West ~ Writing About the East in West ~ Writing about the West in East ~ The Eastern European 'Other' Inside the European Union ~ Mental Mappings on Eastern Europe ~ People-ing the Eastern Europeans ~ Geopolitical Views on the East-West Division ~ Post-colonial readings of Eastern Europe ~ Making Borders to the East: Genealogies of Othering ~ Inclusion/Exclusion Nexuses ~ Myths and Misconceptions on Eastern Europe ~ Core Europe/Non-Core Europe ~ Central Europe vs. Eastern Europe ~ Reading the Past: On Memory and Memorialization ~ Eastern Europe and the Crises ~ Assessing Convergence in Eastern Europe ~ Explaining Divergence in Eastern Europe ~ Central and Eastern Europe and the EU ~ Scenarios for the Future of Eastern Europe ~ Eastern Europe and Asymmetries of Europeanization ~ Axiological Framings of Eastern Europe ~ Eastern Europe in Western Literature ~ Re-making Eastern Europe: Pushing the Easterness to the Next Border ~ From the Ottoman Empire to Russia: Cultural Categories in the Making of Eastern Europe ~ Go West! Migration from Eastern Europe and Experiences of 'Othering' ~ Lifestyles and the Quotidian Peculiarities of the Invented East ~ Visual Representation of Eastern Europe in Film: From Dracula to Barbarian Kings ~ Guidebooks for the Savage Lands: Representations of Eastern Europe in Travel Guides ~ Urban Landscapes in Eastern Europe ~ Changing Politics and the Transformation of Cities ~ Eastern Europe and Artistic Movements

***ECE2017 Conference Theme: "Educating for Change"

Whether we are looking at why we must change, or how education has changed or even how education will change, change affects all of us involved in language education in many ways. Administrators, teacher trainers, teachers, students: we all wear many hats and we all come face-to-face with change, sometimes on a daily basis. Positive change is about improvement: improving proficiency, improving lives, helping learners achieve their goals and dreams and ultimately, broadening horizons.

In our work as educators we are often asked to effect change – that we are change-makers can be seen in the new curriculums, new material, and even new techniques or methods that we develop. For those of us who conduct research, our research is often focused on finding "better" or more effective ways of teaching often measured in outcomes such as students entered with an average of X and improved to an average of Y. In such a case, improvement = change! But change is also an area of research as can be seen by looking at journals such as the Journal of Educational Change, Changes in Higher Education, Culture and Change, and Educational Research for Social Change, to mention four. It is a serious area of study, and one worth our attention.

The focus of the last journal mentioned above is worth looking at. Change is not only about test scores or proficiency going up. It is also about lasting change in one's life, life choices, and looking beyond us as individuals to the society we live in. Social change and a focus on improving the societies we live in is another outcome of education. In recent years, there has been a focus on language and identity, as well as an embrace of sociocultural theory and language development.

At the same time change for the sake of change is not a good reason for change. There is often a tension between the status quo (which is not always bad) and the desire to change. As invested members of our field, we need to be able to examine change, identifying and applying that which is appropriate and will further our goals while also having the wisdom and gumption to reject change that does not make sense. As Dewey said, "Reforms which rest simply upon the enactment of law, or the threatening of certain penalties, or upon changes in mechanical or outward arrangements are transitory and futile."

And so we welcome you to this year's conferences, where we can examine change in ways that are important to each of us. What are its challenges, its complexities, and its constraints? It is electrifying to think about the wide-ranging conversations we will have as we consider how we can go about educating for change the world over.

In conjunction with our global partners, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2017.

***ACTC2017 Conference Theme: "Educating for Change"

"Technology" and "change" are two of the most commonplace words in education today. For educators, learners, policy makers, and researchers the questions and concerns frequently revolve around managing constantly changing technology, claims for improvements that technology will bring to the classroom and beyond, and changes that learners and teachers must accommodate themselves to. However, "educating for change" is not about any of these concerns. "For" forces us to examine the changes we wish to create first. What are our purposes? Why do we value certain changes over others? And then, how do we apply technology for the purpose of realising those changes?

A useful lens is to return to underlying definitions of learning to help us examine some of the changes that are possible in learning.

Applying technology to education and learning can change our behavior and the behaviors of our learners. We have all established new habits of mind through our interaction with technology.

Technology can be a powerful tool to augment learners' capacities to construct and therefore change knowledge and change themselves.

Technology may free us from old frames of reference by allowing learners and teachers to communicate farther and faster and with more people with more varied personal experiences than ever before.

However, technology will not help us achieve any of those changes without choosing them first, keeping those choices in mind, and then using the expertise of others. When technologists learn from psychologists, designers, sociologists, and economists or artists we can best reach our desired goals.

In conjunction with our global partners, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2017.

**Keynote Presentation: Beyond web 2.0: Designing authentic mobile learning for everyday contexts in Asia
Professor Mark Pegrum, The University of Western Australia, Australia

When the second generation of the web, or web 2.0, emerged around 2000, it opened up the possibility of promoting personalised but collaborative learning. A new generation of mobile context-aware technologies has now emerged, which builds on web 2.0 but goes beyond it, opening up the possibility of foregrounding authentic learning in everyday contexts. To capitalise on this new potential for educational change, it is essential to develop appropriate mobile learning designs. Drawing on Pegrum's (2014) 3-Level Mobile Learning Framework, Burden & Kearney's (2017) Mobile Pedagogical Framework, and Clandfield & Hadfield's (2017) Weak & Strong Interaction Model, this paper suggests that today's optimal mobile learning designs should involve activities where the devices, the learners, and the learning experiences are all mobile; where the three dimensions of personalisation, collaboration, and authenticity are foregrounded; and where both weak and strong interaction are present. The paper will illustrate the potential of mobile augmented reality (AR) language and literacy learning projects, most of which also incorporate elements of community building and cultural exploration. The main focus will be on recent gamified learning trails in Asia, such as the Singaporean AR Heritage Trails and the Hong Kong AR TIEs (Trails of Integrity and Ethics), where students learn collaboratively in real-world settings, while practising language, developing digital literacies and 21st century skills, building community, and exploring culture. We will consider how these gamified trails are structured to enable students to draw the greatest learning benefits from digitally supported, authentic, real-world interactions.

**Further speakers:
Professor Ted O'Neill, Gakushuin University, Japan
Professor Steve Cornwell, Osaka Women's University, Japan

**JALT Graduate Student Showcase

In partnership with The Japan Association of Language Teachers (JALT), student researchers presenting in the JALT 2016 Graduate Student Showcase have been invited to attend and present their work at a special JALT–IAFOR poster session at The Asian Conference on Language Learning (ACLL2017). This is an excellent chance for conference delegates to catch up on some of the latest developments in language learning and instruction.

Decoding the Digital: A 3-day Winter School at IIIT Bangalore, 12th-14th December 2016


Applications are invited for a 3-day winter school organized by the Centre for IT & Public Policy (CITAPP) at the International Institute of Information Technology Bangalore (IIITB) during 12th-14th December 2016.



Concept

Our everyday lives are increasingly embedded in the digital space - the way our cities look, the way we interact with friends, the way we keep in touch with family, the way we express our opinions, the way we shop, date, take a ride - almost everything that we do on a daily basis is digitally mediated, so much so that it will not be exaggeration to say that we live in a digital society. Even as the notion of a digital society captures our imagination, do we understand its different facades?



The Winter School: Decoding the Digital, positioned at the intersection of social science and information technology, provides a sneak peek into interdisciplinary perspectives to understand different aspects of the emerging digital society.  It draws upon:


Themes for 2016

To streamline the conversation around digital society, this year we focus on two themes that are much talked about in the popular press as well as in academic discourses: Smart Cities and Social Media. Between these two themes we cover wide range of topics ranging from smart communities to smart phones, from intelligent transportation to social activism, from e-governance to e-commerce, from big data to privacy and surveillance.



Programme Structure

The winter school programme consists of lectures, interactive discussions, film screenings and group activities. At the end of the three day programme, participants will present a poster on a specific aspect of the digital society discussed around the two specific themes. The sessions will be conducted during 9 am and 5 pm every day.



Applications

Anybody with a Bachelor's degree in any discipline may apply. Students who are in the final year of their Bachelor's degree may also apply. Working professionals employed in the government, corporate and not-for-profit sectors are also encouraged to apply. To apply, please fill in the Application form at https://goo.gl/forms/NQh0N88osC8rd7N62.



Applications must be submitted by 20th November 2016. Accepted candidates will be notified by 25th November 2016.



There is no fee for attending the winter school. Outstation participants may be provided accommodation in IIITB's hostels on payment of applicable charges. For further queries mail to: winterschool2016@iiitb.ac.in
