UACES Annual Conference 2024

1-4 September 2024
Trento, Italy
University of Trento

Our 54th Annual Conference

Scholars, researchers, and experts from across Europe will come together in Trento to exchange ideas, insights, and innovative research in the field of European Studies. Panel discussions, interactive panels, and networking opportunities will provide a unique space for academic growth and collaboration.

A diverse range of topics will once again be part of the conference agenda, all under the umbrella of Themed Tracks. 

Trento, with its rich history and picturesque surroundings, provides the perfect backdrop for this event. Attendees will have the chance to immerse themselves in the culture of the region and enjoy the beauty of Italy.

In 2024, UACES will be offering the main conference as a three-day in-person event, from the 1st to the 4th of September, with a virtual day on the 9th of September.

Themed Tracks

UACES delegates can choose to submit their proposals via Themed Tracks. Track themes include (but are not limited to): Ukraine; Rule of Law; Small States; Ireland and the EU; decentring, decolonising and diversifying European Studies; Trade; Health, and the Environment. If your work does not fit within the parameters of the themed tracks, please select the Open submission track - we want to be as inclusive as possible and will welcome papers and panels on any area of European Studies.


Call for Papers open!

We welcome contributions on all areas of contemporary European Studies from across academic disciplines including (but not limited to) law, economics, geography, history, sociology, public policy, and politics. We accept proposals from established academics, practitioners, and well-prepared doctoral students. UACES particularly welcomes proposals from BIPOC academics, scholars from under-represented geographies (eg the Global South) and scholars from disciplines that are less well represented at UACES conferences including anthropology, cultural studies and history.
