The purpose of this conference is to consider the usefulness of psychoanalysis for political critique, as well as politically-oriented frameworks for reading cultural phenomena. Rather than view psychoanalysis as a transhistorical, universal paradigm for resolving the mysteries of the human in all their manifestations, the goal will be to explore how psychoanalytic inquiry provides a way into history, rather than an escape from it. In terms of the current global economic predicament, we hope to investigate how psychoanalysis can help us move beyond the limited "rational choice" theories of neo-liberal economics without replacing them with a potentially problematic form of socialist rationalism sometimes embraced by the left.

Greek capital Athens hosts the first International Pynchon Week since the release of his eighth novel, Bleeding Edge. Here on the edges of the Mediterranean, of the European Union, of Western History, we have an opportunity not only to discuss the new novel, but also to reconsider the outer limits and internal limitations of the whole field of Pynchon studies. Paper proposals on any aspect of Pynchon's work, life, thought and significance are welcome, but particular weight will be given to proposals that contribute deliberately to a fresh demarcation of these edges.
Topics might include

"If any one book put ley lines on the map, re-enchanted the British landscape and made Glastonbury the capital of the New Age it was John Michell's seminal 1969 tome The View Over Atlantis."
