2nd Global Conference: Fan Communities and Fandom

Friday 7th November – Sunday 10th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:
The words 'fan' and 'fandom' often conjure up images of screaming groupies, sports supporters adorned in the colours of 'their' team, die-hard messageboard participants and even stalkers who perpetrate actual violence against the object of their fannish desires. Whether viewed as a positive or negative cultural force, fandoms represent participatory communities that are so thoroughly inscribed within our social fabric, and integral to the way many individuals understand their identity, that it warrants holistic study in an interdisciplinary context.

TEXTUAL TRAILS - TRANSMISSIONS OF ORAL AND WRITTEN TEXTS
11th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014

Texts tend to travel across space and time, carried by sound waves, written on parchments and codices, sealed in envelopes and travel trunks, and streaming as bits in the internet. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.

9th Global Conference: The Erotic

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations

Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.

Every culture has its conception, interpretation, dissemination and reformulation of myths on a grand spectrum from oral and written narratives to aural and visual arts. Furthermore, myths from different cultures have similar formation mechanisms no matter how diverse social processes cultures might have undergone. The underlying motivation behind the similarity of myths, even myth-making processes, might be considered as deriving from various aspects and layers of cultural memory. Myths as one of the basic building blocks of culture are continuously rewoven into the fabric of memory.
Subjects for discussion may include, but are not limited to:
• Comparative creation myths
• Ancient myths and/vs. modern myths

5th Global Conference: Making Sense of: Suffering

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:

This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore if, or to what extent, meaning can be found in suffering. During the course of living our lives, we are invariably forced to stop and question why we suffer – be it through illness, pain, loss, grief or the multitude of distressing circumstances which we encounter. Problems arise in a variety of contexts and due to a bewildering variety of conditions. And because our lives are constant streams of experience, the nature of suffering and consequently the "meaning" of such suffering continually varies and changes.
