Call for papers: Crossing the Ocean: Transatlantic Conjunctures and Conjectures

Th On-line Journal Modelling the New Europe invites authors to contribute papers for its next issue – no. 17/2015 on the topic Crossing the Ocean: Transatlantic Conjunctures and Conjectures

During the recent decades, transatlantic studies have acquired their distinct references and recognition as a field of study dedicated to multiple interactions and mutual relations between the New World and other geographical areas situated on different sides of the ocean. More often than not, the research comprising the field of Transatlantic Studies points at various possible encounters between the United States of America and countries and regions situated across the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the protean and multifaceted presence of the United States in all aspects of contemporary life all over the world, transatlantic studies have been associated with plural approaches and meanings, with multiple domains of investigation and an indefinite sum of perspectives. As such, transatlantic studies encapsulate both conjunctures (i.e., time and space or context-dependant approaches) and conjectures (i.e., subjective and personal understandings of the transatlantic world, in keeping with the genuine experiences of this complicated space).

 Accordingly, this issue collects papers and contributions from, but not limited to, the following areas of research:

 – international politics and international relations in which the United States is one of the actors;

– comparative policies and institutions from a transatlantic perspective;

– culture, law and society in the transatlantic world;

– human rights and international legislation cooperation between the United States and other countries of the world;

– economic development and interests, free trade and commercial partnerships between the US and the world;

– cross-cultural conflicts and influences in various life contexts.
