9th Max Weber Fellows June Conference
10-12 June 2015
Badia Fiesolana, San Domenico di Fiesole
The annual June Conference of the Max Weber Programme is a forum where the research of current Max Weber Fellows (MWFs) is brought together with recent work done by former MWFs. The conference is meant to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on economic, historical, legal, political and social debates in research and academia. Furthermore, it is a forum to foster inter-cohort academic collaboration and cross-institutional exchange. Hence, we invite applications from current and former MWFs, as well as other early-career postdocs (within five years of obtaining their PhDs) who currently hold EUI Jean Monnet Fellowships or Marie Skłodowska-Curie grants at either the EUI or elsewhere.
One of the bedrocks of the Social Issues for Social Science conference is its cross-disciplinarity. During the 2014/15 academic year, the Max Weber Fellows have been exchanging ideas in the context of seven thematic groups, each of which will be represented by a section at the June conference. For each section we welcome papers or posters - both theoretical and empirical - looking at the topics listed below from an economic, historical, political, sociological or legal perspective:
- Section 1 – Current challenges in the design, regulation and governance of fiscal, monetary and financial policies: causes, cures and consequences
- Section 2 – Migration and citizenship: gaps between governance and practice
- Section 3 – Past and present democratic challenges and institutional change in the EU
- Section 4 – Knowledge, authority and freedom
- Section 5 – Determinants and consequences of inequality
- Section 6 – Globalization and the nation-state
- Section 7 – Rationality and decision making
