7. Call for Proposals: Western US Graduate Research Workshop on the EU

 The European Union Center of Excellence at the University of Washington and Colorado European Union Center of Excellence (CEUCE) are pleased to present

 Call for Proposals: Western US Graduate Research Workshop on the EU
May 21-22, 2010
University of Washington

Applications due April 2, 2010

 Since 1998, the European Union Centers of Excellence Program in the United States has advanced transatlantic understanding and people-to-people links through its support for teaching, research and outreach related to the EU and transatlantic relations.  With the support of this program, the European Union Centers of Excellence in Seattle and Boulder are pleased to announce and solicit applications for the second Western United States Graduate Research Workshop on the European Union, to be held at the University of Washington on May 21 and 22, 2010.

The workshop advances two direct aims: to provide a forum for US-based graduate students at the dissertation level to present their EU-focused research to an audience of knowledgeable, supportive, yet critical faculty and peers; and to provide methodological instruction to students in a way that is relevant to European Union-related work. Instruction will be organized around and informed by the research problems and opportunities presented by the EU and European integration. Professors James Caporaso (University of Washington) and Joseph Jupille (University of Colorado) will be responsible for organizing and conducting the workshops with additional support from Cliff Carrubba (Emory University) and Tanja Börzel (Free University of Berlin). A more general goal is to improve EU research in the United States by building a strong cadre of students with some sense of a shared project and a commitment to carry out sound research with an eye toward completion of the degree and publication of research results.

Doctoral students with approved EU-focused dissertation topics in any academic field and enrolled at institutions in the United States may apply to attend the workshop. Applicants should submit a 5-page research proposal and curriculum vitae, and should solicit letters of recommendation from two faculty, all to be sent by email to the EU Center of Excellence of Seattle at euc@u.washington.edu. The deadline for receipt of application materials is April 2, 2010 with decisions expected to be announced by April 16, 2010.

Graduate students selected to participate in the 2010 workshop will be expected to give a formal presentation of their research proposal and participate in all planned workshop activities. The sponsors will cover the costs of a round trip economy airfare from their home cities to Seattle, along with two nights’ hotel and most meals. This workshop is made possible by the generous funding of the European Commission Delegation to the United States through the EU Centers of Excellence program, establishing the Network of European Union Centers of Excellence.

Please address inquiries to the EU Centers of Excellence in Seattle (euc@u.washington.edu, tel. 206-616-2415) and/or in Boulder (ceuce@colorado.edu, tel. 303-492-4314).
