Important, please read. ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Tue, 31 Oct 2006 09:53:29 +0100 From: "[iso-8859-1] Deutsche Gesellschaft für Osteuropakunde e.V." <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Ladies and Gentlemen The enlargement of the European Union in 2004 changed the shape of the EU and the continent. External borders were moved, internal borders were dissolved, old borders re-emerged, and new borders were established. It is becoming clear that these processes are influenced not only by political and economic factors, but to a large extent by cultural, historic and social conditions as well. Analysis of all these fields can only lead to a better understanding of Europe as a space characterised by complex processes of establishing and transcending borders. Such analysis is therefore of fundamental importance for shaping the continent for the future. The German Association of East European Studies (DGO) in cooperation with the International Council for Central and East European Studies (ICCEES) would like to invite you to the first regional ICCEES European Congress in Berlin, August 2-4, 2007, to be held under the motto “Transcending Europe’s Borders - The EU and Its Neighbours”. The ICCEES regional Congress is being organised to underscore Germany’s presidency of the EU and to build on the success of the ICCEES VII World Congress, which took place in Berlin in summer 2005. The Congress is to serve as the prelude to a series of international conferences which will be held every two or three years to address issues concerning Europe’s future from the perspective of all the relevant disciplines. It aims to provide a forum for representatives from various fields of study. The primary goal of the Congress is to promote international interdisciplinary cooperation in researching European integration as well as Europe and Eastern Europe. For more information on the Congress and the call for papers, please consult the enclosed flyer or visit the Congress Web site at <http://www.iccees-europe.de> www.iccees-europe.de. Inquiries concerning registration formalities should be made to <mailto:email@example.com> firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the deadline for panel and paper proposals is December 1, 2006. Proposals may be sent in electronic form only. To ensure that as many interested scholars and experts as possible know about the Congress, I would like to ask that you forward this information and the enclosed flyer to your members, place it on your mailing list or publish it on your Web site. I thank you in advance for your contribution to the success of the regional Congress and I am looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin.
