Dear UACES colleagues It was in the late 1990s that I first discovered UACES. Urged by my PhD supervisor to go and find some other people interested in what I was interested in, I found the Association a natural home. By the time I’d completed my thesis I had gotten to help set up and […]
Following on from her non-traditional panel at the UACES Annual Conference, UACES member Dorina Baltag reflects on how digital technology has impacted diplomacy. News about important diplomatic conversations among world leaders reaches the public with the speed of a ‘click’ through the means of social media. With over 2.8 billion Facebook users and over 206 […]
Dear UACES Colleagues, I hope you have been spending some time away from your computer screens and recharging the batteries over the summer months. It has again been a challenging year for the academic community faced with the ongoing uncertainties posed by the pandemic. Let us hope that things are a little more straightforward in […]
Even amongst those well-versed in the history of European integration, the name of Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi (RCK for short here and in the book) is relatively unknown. This is particularly true in the anglosphere where until now there was no biography in English of this remarkable 20th century figure. Martyn Bond would have already done a considerable service by producing such a biography but in fact, the book offers much more and can be read with equal profit by specialists as well as the general reader.
We regret to announce the death of Sir Leslie Fielding on 4 March 2021, who was Honorary President of UACES between 1990-96. Leslie was a larger than life figure – extrovert, engaging and energetic. There were at least three sides to his career – the public official, the academic, and involvement in the Church of England.
Since I wrote my last Chair’s column, we have taken the decision to host the 51st UACES Annual Conference virtually due to the ongoing situation with the COVID pandemic. We held our first virtual conference last September and we look forward to seeing friends and colleagues again from the UACES community, albeit, sadly, again in a virtual environment. The call for papers remains open until the 1st of April so do consider submitting a paper or a panel if you have not already done so. This year, we are hoping, restrictions permitting, that we will be able to host a small number of local bubble events to give members the chance to meet up in person in various locations - watch this space. Here’s hoping that the 2022 Annual Conference will take place in Lille as scheduled.
