The Curriculum Resource Center of the Central European University in Budapest announces April 2006 Spring Sessions organized in cooperation with the Departments and Programs of the Central European University. In Spring 2006 the following Course Innovation Session is offered: Re-Focusing South East-European Studies: Integrating Comparative and Relational Perspectives, Budapest, May 22-26, 2005. Deadline for Applications: April 10, 2006.

The process of regional integration and the European Union's Eastern
enlargement calls for the incorporation of South-East European
Studies into the framework of European studies. In this context, the
workshop addresses the need to re-think the history of South-East
Europe by employing relational and comparative approaches, as part of
a more general effort to re-write continental and global history from
an integrated perspective.

The reconfiguration of South-East European Studies can only be the
result of sustained team work of the academic community, as part of
an organized long-term transnational dialogue. To this end, the
workshop plans to bring together junior academics who are at the
beginning of their teaching career, or mid-career and senior
academics scholars teaching the history of South-East Europe in local
universities, engaging them in collaborative critical rethinking of
the theoretical underpinnings and research agenda of South-East
European studies. In addition to the critical scrutiny of "the state
of the art" in the field, the workshop attempts to stimulate
innovative comparative research and to facilitate the incorporation
of research results into teaching, by encouraging the introduction of
