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.

Sport

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

Call for Presentations
Who benefits from sport? The question in the modern world is complex, and demands inter-disciplinary approaches to its solution. Sport in modernity is an everyday part of leisure lives, an aspirational physical activity or something that gives people a sense of belonging through being sports fans. Sport can be a vehicle for social and economic development, yet the economic and political formations of globalisation and modernity bring the spectre of contracts, deals, profits and the pursuit of glory at the expense of everything good about sport.
