Twenty-Eighth International Conference of Europeanists

June 20-22, 2022 - Virtual Sessions

June 29-July 1, 2022 - In-person Sessions

Iscte – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa | Lisbon, Portugal


We look forward to seeing many of you at ISCTE - Instituto Universitário de Lisboa | Lisbon, Portugal for the 28th International Conference of Europeanists. The theme of the conference, The Environment of Democracy, captures two central challenges facing Europe and the world today: climate change and the future of democracy. The 2022 conference will also be the first time that we meet in person since Madrid in 2019. We are thrilled that our reunion will take place in Lisbon, where the local organizing team, led by Guya Accornero, and the conference co-chairs Paula Castro, Gökce Yurdakul, and Alison Johnston are working to assemble an exciting, engaging, and innovative program.

A central goal of CES as a scholarly organization is the promotion of inclusiveness and sustainability. We know that some members would like to attend the in-person conference but, unfortunately, face financial constraints and/or have concerns about travel. We have scheduled an online conference component for June 20-22, 2022 (the week before the in-person conference in Lisbon) to accommodate these groups. The in-person component in Lisbon (June 29-July 1, 2022) remains the centerpiece of our Annual Conference, with the online component forming an essential feature. Together, the online and in-person conference components add up to a week filled with networking opportunities and scholarly exchange. In-person participants may attend the virtual sessions as “observers” free of charge to benefit from additional intellectual exchange as well as professional development, while virtual participants are able to zoom into the headline Lisbon events (keynote and presidential panel/plenaries).

Practical Information

All proposals may be submitted from 12:00 PM EDT, September 7 to 11:59 PM EDT, October 20, 2021. Participants may present in a maximum of two paper sessions and additional one book panel/roundtable during the in-person event. In addition, registered in-person participants may act as chair, moderator or discussant for one additional virtual session. Please note that participants may present in one virtual session only. You will not be able to submit the same paper or panel proposal to both the online and in-person event.

A Guide for the Submission Categories

The individual paper submission process is for papers that are part of an organized panel AND for stand-alone paper proposals (papers not connected to an organized panel). For detailed instructons, click here


If you are invited as a panelist to the book panel/ roundtable, select "Book/Roundtable Panelist" as your individual submission sub-category. For detailed instructons, click here.


If you are a chair/panel organizer, please submit into a Paper Panel or Book Panel/Roundtable category. Panel proposals cannot be submitted until ALL panel participants have submitted proposal applications individually. Unfortunately, we are unable to host hybrid sessions. For this reason, all invited panelists must adhere to the same agreed format. Invited panelists should specify that their proposal is part of a panel and should provide the panel organizer's/chair's email. The panel organizer/chair will then receive a confirmation email with a paper proposal number for each paper submitted to her/his panel. 


Detailed instructions for submitting a Paper Panel or a Book Panel/Roundbale are available on CES website.
