International Conference on Myths, Archetypes and Symbols: “Models and Alternatives”

Saturday, July 10, 2021

Humankind has always sought to explain its origins and the mysteries of life to map personal and collective boundaries, and to secure its sense of identity through the power of everyday events and occurrences. Exemplary accounts of imaginary happenings and supernatural creatures from a time beyond history and memory explain the genesis of the universe, the making of a living thing, the formation of an attitude or the inception of an institution. The essence of these traditional narratives reflects a certain system of values and code of self-conduct of a group of individuals bound together by social and cultural ties, and the cardinal virtues and vices of human nature captured in a conventional configuration.

Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

Since ancient times, mirrors have been viewed as place where the dual worlds of soul and self merge. In ancient Mexico, polished obsidian mirrors were viewed as magical portals through which sorcerers traveled to reach the world of the gods. The fictitious mirror of 18th-century author, Oliver Goldsmith, revealed the inner workings of the mind rather than the surface.  In the 21st century, our reflections may obscure rather than uncover the truths we once searched for.  Through technology, we can recreate ourselves and the world around us. We see our altered, perfected reflections in our photos, on our web cams, and in advertising. Images may come to show not necessarily our realities, but visions of the world that we prefer.

Traveling, both as a concept and performativity, has yielded a diverse range of criticalliteratures that probe into the epistemological, ethical and aesthetic dimensions oftravel and mobility. However, much of the critical theories on travel (and, of late,nomadology) draw on the Western canon, while there appears to be a dearth ofproportionate research on and/or documentation of the indigenous analyticalframeworks that engage with travel(ing) theory.

Playing on the SAMLA 93 conference theme of “Social Networks and Social Distance,” the Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on topics relevant to questions and issues of Southern networks and distance. A region often rendered into a single, monolithic entity, the South as articulated in various literatures rests at intersections of global politics, culture, economy, and history, which are often overlooked in traditional Southern studies.

Life-history approach occupies the central place in conducting and producing  (auto)biographical and (auto)ethnographic studies through the understanding of self, other, and culture.
