The European Union Center of California announces its 14th annual Claremont-University of California Undergraduate Research Conference on the European Union. This is the oldest and largest academic
conference in the United States dedicated to undergraduate research on European Union topics.
The primary purpose of this conference is to enhance undergraduate training in and knowledge of the European Union and US-European relations. In addition, the aim of the conference is to allow
students with expertise in different areas to interact with each other as well as with faculty, foster intercampus cooperation, and recognize the excellent work achieved by students. Envisioned as an
intercampus undergraduate seminar, the participating campuses simultaneously offer courses on the issues relevant in Europe today, integrating the conference with the student’s curriculum to
encourage student initiated research and presentations.
Having completed individual projects, students from each participating institution and their faculty mentors gather for an interactive conference focusing on European issues and student research.
Students will present and discuss their research in a panel format, each panel being composed of three to five students. Each presentation will be followed by questions and a discussion
moderated by a faculty member. The public is welcome to attend these conference sessions. Please see the next two pages for panel sessions, times and locations.
This conference is hosted by the European Union Center of California, Scripps College. Special thanks go out to our co-sponsors: The Institute of European Studies at the University of California at
Berkeley; European Union Center of Excellence at UC Berkeley; Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies at UC Berkeley; BYU Center for the Study of Europe, the David M. Kennedy Center
for International Studies at BYU, European Union Center of Excellence of Seattle at the University of Washington, and Colorado European Union Center of Excellence at the University of Colorado.
Students may pursue a wide range of topics that reflect their interest, expertise, and past research. Topics may deal with any aspect of European integration or transatlantic relations. Papers can be
about the EU, a particular country within the EU, or the EU’s relationship with outside countries.
Students will present and discuss their research in a panel format, each panel being composed of three or four student papers. Each presentation will last about 10-12 minutes followed by questions
and a discussion moderated by a faculty member. The conference will include a keynote address. At the conclusion of the conference, faculty participants will nominate and select the “best papers” of
the conference. Selected papers will be published in a special volume of conference proceedings.
In addition, the EU Center of California and some of its partner institutions will be offering awards for the top papers with study tours to Europe over the summer. More information TBA.
