Meeting Description:

Between the 'Prague Spring' and the 'French May': Transnational Exchange
and National Recontextualization of Protest Cultures in 1960/70s Europe

3rd Conference of the Interdisciplinary Research Forum Protest Movements
(IFK)

Date: August 25-27, 2006
Location: Heidelberg Center for American Studies, University of
Heidelberg, Germany

Conveners:
Martin Klimke, History Department, University of Heidelberg, Germany
Joachim Scharloth, German Department, University of Zurich, Switzerland

Research on both the domestic dissent and social unrest in the U.S. and
on the transatlantic nature of political protest has been blossoming for
several years. However, despite significant advances with regard to the
analysis of local movements, the specific European dimension of protest
movements and their subcultures during the Cold War has hitherto only
been analyzed marginally and within closed national contexts. This
extensive gap in historical research is all the more regrettable since
Europe at the time of the Cold War can be considered a microcosm for
global political events. It was here that the geopolitical faultline
between East and West was most visible, with the Berlin Wall as its
symbolic embodiment. Consequently, not only the unique geopolitical
environment but also the variety of national experience ranging from the
Communist East European states of the Warsaw Pact to the democratic
nations of Western Europe, as well as the dictatorships of Spain,
Portugal and Greece, warrant a more thorough examination with respect to
border transcending cultures of domestic dissent.

Despite similar political concerns and international counter-cultural
inspirations, national variants of what was perceived as a worldwide
generational revolt were often strikingly different. Whereas activists in
Western Europe frequently attacked the United States for its imperialist
interventions, most notably in Vietnam, dissenters in Eastern Europe
often utilized American cultural items such as music or clothing to voice
their grievances. International encounters or meetings such as the World
Youth Festival in Sofia 1968 occasionally illustrated the distance of
political concepts and intellectual sources between the two: while the
young generation in Eastern Europe, for example, welcomed efforts such as
the Prague Spring, the same was often denounced as reformist by their
Western counterparts.

However, not only the ''First World'' of Western capitalism, but also
the ''Second World'' of the Communist bloc, and the ''Third World'' were
shattered by largely unexpected internal ruptures in particular in the
late 1960s. One outstanding common characteristic of these movements was
thus the goal of transgressing the ideological fronts of the Cold War,
which threatened the existing geopolitical division of the world,
especially on the European scene. Regardless of different national
consequences, these networks of protest and their antecedents in the
1950s spurred each other's activism, and through their cooperation and
mutual inspiration contributed to far-reaching internal and international
changes. The conference will therefore aim at tracing these long-term
socio-political transformations with a focus on Europe and a particular
emphasis on processes of transnational exchange.

Possible topics include:

-languages of dissent
-cultural transfer
-protest and foreign policy
-violence and terrorism
-the transformation of the public sphere
-the rise of a transnational civil society
-emotions
-constructions of class and race
-sexual politics
-art, literature and music
-transnational networks

We especially welcome comparative approaches and papers dealing with
transnational phenomena.

Conference proceedings will be in English. Preference will be given to
young scholars (PhD-candidates or Post-doctoral students).

Those interested in presenting a paper should send an abstract of no more
than 250 words, plus a short resume of no more than 2 pages, including a
list of relevant publications.

DEADLINE FOR PAPER PROPOSALS: December 31, 2005

Selections will be made by: January 31, 2006

Completed papers must reach the conference organizers by: June 15, 2006

EACL 2006 First Call For Papers

11th Meeting of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational
Linguistics

April 3rd - 7th 2006
Trento, Italy

http://eacl06.itc.it/

Submission deadline: November 8, 2006

The European Association of Computational Linguistics invites the submission of
papers for its 11th Meeting. Papers are invited on substantial, original, and
unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics, including, but
not limited to:

- phonetics, phonology and morphology;
- word segmentation, tagging and chunking;
- syntax, semantics and grammars;
- pragmatics, discourse and dialogue;
- the lexicon and ontologies;
- parsing and grammatical formalisms;
- generation, text planning and summarization;
- language modeling, spoken language recognition and understanding;
- mathematical models of language;
- information retrieval, text categorisation, question answering, and
information extraction;
- paraphrasing and textual entailment;
- machine learning for natural language;
- multi-lingual processing, machine translation and translation aids;
- multi-modal and natural language interfaces and dialogue systems;
- language-oriented applications, tools and resources;
- evaluation methodology.

Requirements

Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed work
rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion
of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results
should be included. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality,
technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and interest
to the attendees.

A paper accepted for presentation at the EACL Meeting, including EACL-related
workshops, cannot be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with
publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to
other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the submission page.

Reviewing

The reviewing of the papers will be blind. Reviewing will be managed by an
international Conference Program Committee consisting of Area Chairs and a team
of reviewers. Final decisions on the technical program will be made by the
Conference Program Committee.

Submission Information

Submissions should follow the two-column format of ACL proceedings and should
not exceed eight (8) pages, including references. We strongly recommend the use
of ACL LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word Style files tailored for this year's
conference. They will be available at http://eacl06.itc.it/submission.htm. A
description of the format will also be available in case you are unable to use
these style files directly. Papers must conform to the official EACL-06 style
guidelines, and we reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform
to these styles including font size restrictions. Submissions should be in PDF
format and must include all fonts, so that the paper will print (not just view)
anywhere.

As reviewing will be blind, the paper should not include the authors' names and
affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity,
e.g., ''We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...'', should be avoided. Instead,
use citations such as ''Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...''. Papers that
do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review.

Submission will be electronic using the paper submission software to be made
available at http://eacl06.itc.it/submission.htm. The papers must be submitted
no later than 11:59pm (23:59) GMT November 8th, 2005.

Papers submitted after that time will not be reviewed.
