      *Social Power in South Eastern Europe -- Perspectives of Social and
      Cultural Studies *
      A Conference at the Max Weber Centre for Advanced Cultural and Social
      Studies (University of Erfurt), sponsored by the German Research
      Foundation (DFG) February

      Most of the authoritative historical and sociological works dealing with
      questions of authority or social power (Herrschaft) in Europe usually
      focus on western European developments. This conference aims to broaden
      this perspective by bringing together scholars from various disciplines
      and fields, discussing the specific forms of social power in the
      southeastern part of Europe. Presenters will be coming from universities
      in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Romania and panels will include
      papers on charisma, patrimonialism, gender, violence, constitutional
      procedures and architecture, both historically and in the present.

      The conference will feature a keynote lecture by Ulf Brunnbauer
      (Südost-Institut Regensburg) and comments from discussants who are
      specialists in the field of Southeast European Studies. It opens with
      papers on the relationship between traditional and modern forms of
      authority and then goes on to analyze forms of representation and
      legitimization of power in various historical contexts as well as
      fascist violence. The conference closes with papers considering various
      instances of discoursive power in Southeastern Europe. The conference
      language is German. For information on registration, please contact:
