Events in CES are three-fold in nature – they include an academic seminar series, a public lecture series and joint seminars with related research centres in OPJGU.
Europe in-contexts seminars in CES focus on studying different geo-political areas of Europe as well as the key contexts such as mechanisms of governance, democracies, cultures, rights, socio-histories, subjectivities, conflicts and contested politics that have shaped Europe since 1945. The purpose of the seminar series is to contribute towards shaping the focus of three core CES research groups: Anthropology of Europe, European Politics, Culture and Society and New Democracies of Europe.
