"Discourses on Motherhood" International Conference

updated: 
Thursday, January 4, 2024 - 12:37am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 10, 2024

This conference aims at exploring motherhood and its diverse cultural representations, while interrogating the ways in which such representations impact on individual and collective experiences of motherhood. Thus, we attempt at examining motherhood both as a personal experience and as an institution, as well as observing the nuances involved in the interaction between both.

The conference seeks to encourage dialogue around cultural concepts of motherhood by observing the cultural roles that are given to maternal figures, the perspectives from which this experience is approached, and how these engage in dialogue with other current discourses such as politics, law and medicine.

"The Place of Memory and the Memory of Place" International Conference

updated: 
Thursday, January 4, 2024 - 12:37am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

Memory is a major theme in contemporary life, a key to personal, social and cultural identity. Scholars have studied the concept from different perspectives and within different disciplines: philosophy, sociology, anthropology, geography, architecture, urban design, and the interdisciplinary "place studies". According to Pierre Nora, places of memory or lieux de mémoire refer to those places where "memory crystallizes and secretes itself"; the places where the exhausted capital of collective memory condenses and is expressed. To be considered as such, these sites must be definable in the three senses of the word: material, symbolical and functional, all in different degrees but always present.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

Life-history approach occupies the central place in conducting and producing  (auto)biographical and (auto)ethnographic studies through the understanding of self, other, and culture.
