1st Global Conference
Body Horror: Contagion, Mutation, Transformation

Monday 11th February – Wednesday 13th February 2013
Sydney, Australia

Call for Presentation:

The body. My body. This thing which is with me all day, every day, from my birth to my death. This flesh which is me. My intimate life-long friend.

In our day-to-day living we have no reason to question or to doubt our bodies. Until the bond of trust is shaken or broken. Something happens. To my body. Something inside: going wrong. A betrayal: a turning against: an unwelcome and unwanted change. From which there is no escape, no running away, nowhere to hide. This is happening to me.

2nd Global Conference
Sins, Vices and Virtues

Wednesday 13th March – Friday 15th March 2013
Lisbon, Portugal

Call For Presentations:

Not every culture recognises the notion of sin but all of them recognise the idea of a religious or spiritual transgression. All or nearly all the 'Christian' vices-virtues were those espoused by Greek-Roman philosophers first and are, therefore, not exclusively Christian in the origin. The Judaic idea of 'sin' varies considerably across time and the accountability of society/group vs. individual fluctuates as well. Also, the (Latin) idea of sin as 'transgression' or 'breaking of the (divine) law' is at variance with the (Greek) idea of sin as 'missing the mark' and 'mistake/error.'

5th Global Conference
Hope

Sunday 10th March – Tuesday 12th March 2013
Lisbon, Portugal

Call For Presentations:

When Pandora's box was emptied of all the ills that would plague the world, one small winged creature still remained: hope. The project inquires into the nature of this gift. Is hope, in fact, a good, encouraging us to do or be good? Or is it an evil; an illusion, perhaps an impossible fantasy? How does hope manifest itself in the world, in language, literature, and the arts? How – should – hope be encouraged? Is hope individual or collective in nature? Or both? What does hope contribute to individual or national identity?

14th Global Conference
Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness

Sunday 10th March – Tuesday 12th March 2013
Lisbon, Portugal

Call For Presentations:
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to examine and explore issues surrounding evil and human wickedness. In wrestling with evil(s) we are confronted with a multi-layered phenomenon which invites people from all disciplines, professions and vocations to come together in dialogue and wrestle with questions that cross the boundaries of the intellectual, the emotional and the personal. Underlying these efforts there is the sense that in grappling with evil we are in fact grappling with questions and issues of our own humanity.

The Influence of Tony Kushner on 21st Century Drama

updated: 
Thursday, July 12, 2012 - 12:45pm
Southern Atlantic Modern Language Association

Almost twenty years ago Tony Kushner raised the rafters with his epic Angels in America and this gave just cause for playwrights to recognize that Kushner was now the new benchmark and, as Arthur Miller said, attention must be paid. The HBO televised Angels gave many admirers and aspirers an opportunity to see the play more so than even its many nationwide productions. The influence of Kushner and his plays has reached into the context and subtext of a mindset that reconsidered what plays can do as art, and as socio-political activism reflected in both traditional and tradition-defying new drama.

Spirituality in the 21st Century

Thursday 7th March – Saturday 9th March 2013

The contemporary study of spirituality encompasses a wide range of interests.
