The Other Senses of Modernism (MSA 14)

This CFP is for MSA 14

While there has been increasing attention to the senses more generally and to the 'lower' senses of smell, taste, and touch in recent years, it is pretty clear that most scholarship on modernism that focuses on sensation is visually (and to a lesser extent aurally) oriented. Attention to the visual in modernist scholarship has allowed us to ask important questions about surface and glamour, affect and image, the urban landscape and the commodity, race and sexuality. But our largely visual version of modernism has also, perhaps, not allowed us to conceptualize and encounter the other senses of modernism.

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014

Every culture has its conception, interpretation, dissemination and reformulation of myths on a grand spectrum from oral and written narratives to aural and visual arts. Furthermore, myths from different cultures have similar formation mechanisms no matter how diverse social processes cultures might have undergone. The underlying motivation behind the similarity of myths, even myth-making processes, might be considered as deriving from various aspects and layers of cultural memory. Myths as one of the basic building blocks of culture are continuously rewoven into the fabric of memory.
Subjects for discussion may include, but are not limited to:
• Comparative creation myths
• Ancient myths and/vs. modern myths

5th Global Conference: Making Sense of: Suffering

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:

This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore if, or to what extent, meaning can be found in suffering. During the course of living our lives, we are invariably forced to stop and question why we suffer – be it through illness, pain, loss, grief or the multitude of distressing circumstances which we encounter. Problems arise in a variety of contexts and due to a bewildering variety of conditions. And because our lives are constant streams of experience, the nature of suffering and consequently the "meaning" of such suffering continually varies and changes.
