Since the end of the Cold War, scholarship has provided new definitions of
conflict that have attempted to reconfigure the identity of the 'enemy' or
'other'. Whether in the realm of personal interaction or political
engagements, the changing nature of global politics in the post-Cold War era
has fundamentally impacted the many ways people see themselves in relation
to others. This inter-disciplinary conference encourages fresh scrutiny of

  The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason
   
  As I was walking among the fires of Hell,
  delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;
  which to Angels look like torment and insanity.
  I collected some of their Proverbs. – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790
   
  How should we read these famous lines from Blake's masterpiece? What is the place of Reason in religion? Passion in morality? The Gothic in the Sublime – and vice versa?

I want a hero: an uncommon want
  When every year and month sends forth a new one,
Till, after cloying the gazettes with cant,
  The age discovers he is not the true one;
Of such as these I should not care to vaunt,
  I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan.
