Dissent In Transatlantic Perspective: Then, Now, and in the Future

Prague Creative Center, Prague/Czech Republic

May 15th - 17th, 2020



The main goal of the symposium is to explore the concept of dissent from
different disciplinary perspectives in order to assess its various meanings,
uses and continued relevance. Transnational aspects of dissent are of
special significance, as they provide valuable comparative perspectives for
the ongoing debates related to the subject. Rise of populist and/or
authoritarian regimes hostile to the very concept of dissent should serve as
a frame of reference. 


The symposium shall address questions such as: When is dissent valuable, and
when does it become a threat? When do dissenters become moral heroes, and
when do they become villains? What is the nature of the "status quo" that
various dissenters challenge? Is dissent a quintessential "American" idea?
Who are the 21st century dissenters? What are the traits shared by both
progressive and regressive dissent? What is the difference between North
American dissenters and European ones? Is it possible to analyze dissent
from a neutral point of view? 


The symposium seeks to bring together scholars and thinkers from both sides
of the Atlantic (Canadian scholars are welcome) to explore these questions
as they are rooted in different area contexts, yet share the same underlying
premises. Special emphasis will be placed on transatlantic as well as
transnational linkages, as these provide a unique perspective on the
phenomenon and serve as examples of alternative international ties. 


Selected papers will be published in Studia Territorialia, a peer-reviewed
journal of Area Studies published by Charles University Press Karolinum. 


Keynote speakers: 

Erica Violet Lee, University of Saskatchewan 

Timothy Petete, University of Central Oklahoma 

Ralph Young, Temple University 


We also welcome proposals for twenty-minute presentations or panels of 3 or
4 papers (ninety minutes) in the field of Canadian studies. We especially
encourage contributions that present a range of interdisciplinary
perspectives. We accept proposals in English. 


An abstract of the proposal, maximum 250 words, with a brief CV of the
author(s), should be submitted by February 15th, 2020 to
american.studies at fsv.cuni.cz <mailto:american.studies at fsv.cuni.cz> .
