4th Global Conference
Making Sense of:Suffering

Sunday 10th November 2013 – Tuesday 12th November 2013
Athens, Greece

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.

2nd Global Conference
Body Horror: Contagion, Mutation, Transformation

Friday 1st November 2013 – Sunday 3rd November 2013
Athens, Greece

Call for Presentations
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.
