Dr. Rob Fisher/ Inter-Disciplinary.Net
1st Global Conference
Monday 4th November 2013 – Wednesday 6th November 2013
Call for Presentations
Such moments do not need to be political to have far reaching consequences. Technological and economic revolutions are continuously emerging – sometimes being embraced and other times resisted.
As such, nations, societies and institutions are continuously changing as they are confronted with revolt, revolution and resistance. In this conference, we are aiming to understand the complex interplays between order and change. This occurs not simply in the political sphere, but revolts and revolutions emerge in the world of art, media, sexuality, gender subcultures and across institutions such as universities, hospitals and so on.
We are aiming to explore moments of change that question and alter established structures. Particularly, we are seeking to gain insights into the source of such moments and how they gain momentum.
Furthermore, how do established interests react and respond? How does conventional power structures change and enclose such movements? How do citizens and non-citizens shape these moments of change?
Papers, workshops, performances and presentations are invited on any of the following themes:
-Resistance today including Occupy Wall Street
Such changes are happening all around us, and the location of the conference, in Athens (Greece) is of particular significance in the recent turbulent years that has seen the economic, cultural and social revolution of the European Union emerge and unravel.
