8th Global Conference: Fear4, Horror & Terror: Rituals, Myths and Symbolism
Thursday 11th September – Saturday 13th September 2014
Call for Presentations
We invite proposals on any area related to the conference purpose. We encourage creative and challenging presentations. That is, in addition to academic analysis, we welcome practitioner case studies or other approaches, such as people in religious environments, therapists, and victims/survivors of events that have been provoked by FHT. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary research that crosses divides such as law enforcement, medical, teaching, artistic environments and/or fiction writers whose work aims to evoke these reactions.
Presentations, papers, performances, reports, work-in-progress, panels and workshops are invited on issues related to any of the following themes and related areas:
1) Myths, Ritual, Symbolism and Fear, Horror and Terror:
2) About Fear, Horror and Terror:
3) Contexts of Fear, Horror and Terror:
4) At the Interface of Fear, Horror and Terror:
5) Representations of Fear, Horror and Terror:
6) Relationships with Fear, Horror and Terror:
Proposals will be accepted which deal with related areas and themes.
In order to support and encourage inter-disciplinarity engagement, it is our intention to create the possibility of starting dialogues between the parallel events running during this conference. Delegates are welcome to attend up to two sessions in each of the concurrent conferences. We also propose to produce cross-over sessions between these groups – and we welcome proposals which deal with the relationship between Fear, Horror and Terror and Multiculturalism.
What to Send:
a) author(s), b) affiliation as you would like it to appear in programme, c) email address, d) title of proposal, e) body of proposal, f) up to 10 keywords.
Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). We acknowledge receipt and answer to all paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.
The conference is part of the ‘At the Interface’ series of research projects. The aim of the conference is to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore various discussions which are innovative and exciting. All proposals accepted for and presented at the conference must be in English and will be eligible for publication in an ISBN eBook. Selected proposals may be developed for publication in a themed hard copy volume(s). All publications from the conference will require editors, to be chosen from interested delegates from the conference.
Inter-Disciplinary.Net believes it is a mark of personal courtesy and professional respect to your colleagues that all delegates should attend for the full duration of the meeting. If you are unable to make this commitment, please do not submit an abstract for presentation.
