Loving Dystopia
A Global Interdisciplinary Conference

Friday 17th March 2023 - Saturday 18th March 2023
Prague, Czech Republic

Literally the opposite of utopia, or ‘perfect place,’ the term dystopia was coined in the mid-19th century and has been used to both critique laws, policies and actions by those in power, and to describe states of being.

A dystopian society is generally seen as an imagined state of existence or an imagined society, characterized by gross imbalances of power, injustice, cruelty, suffering and hopelessness, with either totalitarian or nonexistent — or at least invisible — and always unethical forms of government.

The End of Life Experience: 4th Global Interdisciplinary Conference

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying and ways the dead are remembered. Over the past four decades, scholarship in thanatology and palliative care has increased dramatically. Our conversations seek a broad array of perspectives that explore, analyse, and/or interpret the myriad interrelations and interactions that exist between death and culture. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, it also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood. Sadly, too, culture sometimes facilitates death through violence.

Thursday, September 30, 2021

The climate crisis, the economic crisis, the refugee crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic has called to the forefront the experience of contemporary beings which forces us to re-evaluate the place of the human in the current world, calling into question the crisis of the universal mode of man and human exceptionalism. Such a displacement in how we think about the human experience also forces us to re-think the city as a whole and what it wants to forget, in particular urban ruins. Is it still beneficial to think of urban ruins as dead, as just relics of a bygone age of national development, or just as modern flops that merge with the surrounding urban fabric? Or are they alive?

Call for Chapter Proposals: New Perspectives on the Metal Gear Solid Series (edited collection)

 

Editors: Steven Kielich (University at Buffalo) and Chris Hall (University of the Ozarks)

 

In 2015, Hideo Kojima and his company Kojima Productions split from Konami after the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Kojima’s departure from Konami marked an unfortunate, but understandable, end to the Metal Gear Solid series. Now, in this “post-Phantom Pain” era, it has become both possible and essential to make a retrospective study of the critically, commercially, and culturally resonant series that was Metal Gear Solid.

What is resilience for people with disabilities? What is recovery? 

Narratives of illness, trauma and disability are often framed to emphasize recovery. Reflecting on resiliency, constructed ideas of normalcy, and “crip time,” Ellen Samuels writes: “Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings” (2017).
