Monsters
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference seeks to investigate and explore the enduring influence and imagery of monsters and the monstrous on human culture throughout history. In particular, the project will have a dual focus with the intention of examining specific ‘monsters’ as well as assessing the role, function and consequences of persons, actions or events identified as ‘monstrous’. The history and contemporary cultural influences of monsters and monstrous metaphors will also be examined with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration and discussion.

The question of the origin of the Yoruba race still remains contentious. While diverse accounts of its origin have been appropriated by historians and scholars in cultural studies such as Revd Samuel Johnson in The History of the Yorubas (1921), Saburi Biobaku in The Pattern of Yoruba History (1958), Ade Ajayi in Yoruba Warfare in the Nineteenth Century (1964), among others, numerous discourses and counter discourses continue to unfold.

World religions have long held pilgrimage as an important journey of the faithful. Today, however, there is an increasing number of non-religious, secular or spiritual pilgrims undertaking these journeys. The nearly 800 km-long Camino de Santiago is a popular destination for secular pilgrims travelling through France and across Northern Spain. Established as one of three principal Christian pilgrimage routes over 1,200 years ago, the Camino is experiencing increasing visitor numbers with over 300,000 undertaking the journey each year.
