Metamorphosis: Transformations across Time, Culture & Identity

updated: 
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 11:33am
University of Glasgow College of Arts Postgraduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2021

Registration is now open for the annual University of Glasgow College of Arts PGR Conference.

Metamorphosis refers to a dramatic change in the form, structure or character of an entity, distinctly characterised as a process whereby the old is subsumed, absorbed or self-devoured to provide the substance to forge the new—but how is this concept experienced in contemporary culture?

How does metamorphosis materialise in research practice, academia, social justice, or identity? What social, political or cultural forces engender metamorphosis, and how have these transformations been received? Is metamorphosis creative or destructive? Tangible or intangible? Abrupt or fluid?

Beyond a philosophical analysis of the mind-body problem, embodied minds and mindful bodies challenge us to find new ways of reading symptoms. What are our bodies telling us?
