Call for Papers: Bologna and beyond

The conference titled “Bologna and Beyond. Experts, entrepreneurs, users and the internationalisation of Higher Education institutions” will be held 20-21 June 2013, in Strasbourg, Maison Interuniversitaire des Sciences de l’Homme – Alsace (MISHA).

The conference is linked to the project “Rebuilding Academia. The Transformations of Central-East European Universities since 1989”, and the main themes of the conference are linked to the impact of various international and European processes on higher education in Central and Eastern Europe (including Germany), with a special focus on the Bologna Process. Papers will be expected on these four core themes:

  • Sociology of Bologna Process actors (experts, academics, etc.)
  • Analysis of international transfers of knowledge, tools, technical indicators, etc.
  • Direct and/or indirect impact of the Bologna Process on its academic “users” (students, academics, HEI technical staff)
  • Global effects of the Bologna Process on the CEE academic space (uniformisation vs. heterogeneity; consolidation of symbolic hierarchies, new power relations etc.).

Deadline for sending in abstracts: 15 December 2012
