Call to show support for Central European University

Dear colleagues,

On Monday, the Hungarian government will vote on legislative changes to Central European University’s status in Hungary. If implemented, the changes would make CEU’s continued operation impossible and strike a blow against the academic freedom that enables all universities, including those in Hungary, to flourish.

ESSHC 2018 CfP deadline extended: “In the Absence of Grand Narratives: Contemporary Challenges for a Historical Theory of Global Capitalism”

We invite contributions for a session at the upcoming ESSHC in Belfast, Northern Ireland on “The Absence of Grand Narratives: Contemporary Challenges for a Historical Theory of Global Capitalism.” Almost four decades have passed since Jean-François Lyotard proclaimed the end of “grand narratives” as a central feature of the postmodern condition. Since then, the collapse of state socialism further accelerated the de-legitimization and, consequently, the rapid decline of Marxism as one of the “grandest” narrative in both academia and beyond.

CfP: "In the Absence of Grand Narratives: Contemporary Challenges for a Historical Theory of Global Capitalism," Proposed Session for the European Social Science History Conference 2018, Belfast

Almost four decades have passed since Jean-François Lyotard proclaimed the end of “grand narratives” as a central feature of the postmodern condition. Since then, the collapse of state socialism further accelerated the de-legitimization and, consequently, the rapid decline of Marxism as one of the “grandest” narrative in both academia and beyond. At the same time, non-Marxist meta-narratives that drew on patterns of modernization and development likewise vanished from debate.
