29 March 2007
Myths and Maps of Europe, European University Institute, History Department. 10 participants

In a time when the meaning of the European construction is being debated, questions about its boundaries, identities and projects arise. What is Europe? Where does it come from? Which are its boundaries? The aim of this workshop is to face these questions by looking at the ways in which Europe has been perceived in both its spatial and mythical dimension.
Maps of Europe, as a first-hand way to approach spatial representations of Europe, have appeared relatively early in history. There exists a vast literature on the broad variety of historical, thematic and topographical maps (or atlases) that convey specific images of Europe. Today, cartography understands itself as a mainly mathematics-oriented discipline, perfectionalising and rationalising its techniques of measuring and representing space.

28-29 September 2007
Traumas in the Eastern Mediterranean:  Between Family, Civil Society and State
Mediterranean Programme, European University Institute, Florence. 8 participants

This workshop, convened with Marcella SIMONI (Unversita di Venezia Ca' Foscari) explores the potential role of civil society for psychosocial collective change and eventually conflict transformation. To what extent can transnational civil society constitute a site for biosocial regeneration  in the face of collective trauma as a result of war, displacement and dislocation? Can civil society also play a role in post-conflict situations as one of the sites where the collective traumas which fuel the conflict are elaborated, and sometimes overcome? If civil society stands as a middle term between the Family and the State, what are the roles of the two latter entities in the elaboration of collective traumas? Is there a competition between them for sheltering and transmitting memory and traumas at an individual and collective level?
