The Council for European Studies Society of Fellows is a community of European Studies scholars, consisting of graduate and professional students, visiting fellows, and postdocs. Fellows meet monthly to discuss their ongoing research with peers from a range of disciplines. The Society of Fellows is a collaborative program between the Council for European Studies, Duke University Center for Jewish Studies, and the Religions and Public Life Initiative at the Kenan Institute for Ethics which provides members with modest research scholarships, opportunities to interact on campus and at regional European Studies events. Fellows engage in lively academic discussion through a private blog and are given the opportunity to record a brief video highlighting their academic work.
For the 2016 – 2017 academic year, the Society of Fellows has divided into two working group, ’Jews and Muslims: Histories, Diasporas, and the Meaning of the European,’ meeting at the John Hope Franklin Center for International Studies, and ‘Religions and Public Life in Global Europe,’ meeting at the Kenan Institute. The panel features current Fellows from across disciplines.
This presentation is sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International Studies and the Council for European Studies. A light lunch will be served. Parking is available in nearby Trent Rd. and Erwin Rd. parking decks. The series provides 1 hour parking vouchers to guests.
