A significant focus for this interdisciplinary project is an annual conference which provides valuable opportunities for participants to become involved in, perhaps, the first of many thoughtful, unique, and creative dialogues with one another. In this engaging and responsive forum presenters are encouraged to share their discipline with enthusiasm and to foster new working relationships through the exploration, examination and discussion of their work with colleagues.

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 (March, 2013: Lisbon, Portugal)

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.

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

Call For Presentations:

'To be known for your personality actually proves you a celebrity. Thus a synonym for "celebrity" is "personality"'

3rd Global Conference
Spirituality in the 21st Century

Thursday 7th March – Saturday 9th March 2013

Call for Presentations:

The contemporary study of spirituality encompasses a wide range of interests. These have come not only from the more traditional areas of religious scholarship—theology, philosophy of religion, history of religion, comparative religion, mysticism—but also more recently from management, medicine, and many other fields.
