4th Global Conference
Making Sense of: Pain

Thursday 9th May – Saturday 11th May 2013
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:
What is pain? What is the meaning of pain? How can we attempt to make sense of it—and should we?

Pain is a complex multi-layered, multi-leveled phenomenon. Standard definitions of pain view it primarily in physical terms as being a life-preserving response to negative stimuli in sentient beings. It is something that happens to and/or in parts of the body. It is described in terms of physical qualities, as an object to be observed, assessed, analysed, managed, overcome and/or eliminated.

Labyrinths: Navigating Complexity Across the Humanities [February 15-17, 2013]

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 - 4:58pm
McGill University English Graduate Student Association

From ancient Greek mythology to cubism, jazz music, and the contemporary puzzle film, labyrinths serve as images for exploring intellectual, affective, and material complexity. This conference will investigate labyrinths from diverse cultural, aesthetic, and theoretical perspectives. Whether literal or figurative, labyrinths are markers of intricacy that can evoke feelings of panic, bewilderment, and failure, or present opportunities for adventure and problem-solving. You might consider the procedural labyrinths that we encounter daily (mass media, bureaucracy, academia), as well as the spatial labyrinths that we inhabit (libraries, hotels, department stores, casinos).

(anti) Foundations: An Interdisciplinary Conference March 15-16, 2013

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 - 12:14pm
Duquesne University's English Graduate Organization

With traditionalists hearkening for a return to founding principles while protestors of various stripes look forward to dismantling the very notion of norms themselves, questions about the foundations of societal structures occupy a central place in myriad contemporary debates. For its 3rd conference—(anti)Foundations—the Duquesne University English Graduate Organization invites considerations of societal structures, their foundations, and the ways that these structures are both reinforced and challenged by works of literature and culture.
