Stanford hosts conference on ethnicity in Europe
The culmination of nearly two years of planning, the „Ethnicity in Today’s Europe” conference concluded Veteran’s Day weekend.
The conference brought together scholars from Spain, Germany, and across the United States to address the question „What is new about the question of ethnicity in Europe today, and what is not?” Panelists tackled this question from many different angles, using their expertise in fields ranging from economics to German Studies. The conference, co-sponsored by the Stanford Humanities Center and the Forum on Contemporary Europe, was organized with a particular emphasis on crossing disciplinary lines and thereby allowing participants to improve their own research, according to Matthew Tiews, Associate Director of the Humanities Center. Although some of the questions raised in the conference have been addressed before, Stanford had never hosted a conference on this topic. (stanfordreview.org) (full article)
