Tuesday, May 27, 2014 - 8:11pm
Morgan Shipley, Co-editor

Is subculture a universal category that discloses itself in similar ways, irrespective of differences in historical moments or cultural geographies? Or is subculture inextricably linked to these specificities? This edited volume seeks to engage these questions (amongst others) through a particular scope. Specifically, in what ways can the humanities helped us to understand subcultures during three distinct eras: the Lost Generation, the 1960s and today's digital age?

A panel sponsored by Epistémè (Research Group on Early Modern England, Paris)

The aim of this panel is to explore the links between physical pain and philosophical theories in the early modern period. Two main issues will be addressed in this session:

1. we will discuss the medical and philosophical theories that were elaborated to account for physical pain at the time: what could be the cause of physical pain and how could it be explained physiologically? Was there a clear distinction between physical pain and emotional suffering? Was pain gendered? We will also focus on the value of pain: was it always seen as negative or could it also be good?
