Conferences organized by CISPEA have traditionally made an effort to enlarge the circle of participating scholars, young or otherwise, and have provided wide room for discussion. To reach these goals, organizers take financial responsibility for the room and board expenses of 15 participants (travel expenses are to be borne by the participant and/or his/her institution) during the days of the workshop. Subsidized participations are assigned on a competitive basis. The competition is open to every institutional affiliation, every age and every country. PhD candidates (or candidates to corresponding European degrees) are welcome to apply. The workshop dealing with how American history has been written in Europe and in European countries, this invitation is not addressed to Americanists only, but Europeanists and historians of the different European countries are equally invited to apply.
Each applicant has got to send to email@example.com a CV in English of no less than 1 double-space page with a short email that motivates his/her interest in the event. Participants are encouraged to attend the whole workshop, but in any case no less than 3 out of 4 sessions. Applications are to be received from now on and in any case no later than June 14, 2015. The selection will be conducted following criteria of geographic, age, and institutional affiliation balance and coherence of the applicant’s scholarly interests with the theme of the workshop. In cases where these criteria were even, then the principle of “first come, first serve” will prevail. Participants are not asked for written papers or statements, but are expected to participate and enliven the discussion. Their names and institutional affiliations will appear in the official workshop program under the entry “Participants”. Non-subsidized participants are equally welcome at their own expense and their names will equally appear in the program. No fee is necessary to participate. To express your interest to participate in the event, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
