Bored to Death: What do we talk about when we talk about boredom?

updated: 
Monday, September 28, 2020 - 2:23pm
ACLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

What is boredom and why do we feel bored? Recently, research on boredom has gained momentum in the scientific community, particularly in neuroscience and clinical psychology, where the symptoms of boredom and the behavioral patterns of the bored person are scrutinized (i.e. Boredomlab). Boredom, however, has been explored by philosophers for centuries and has been making a persistent appearance in the modern novel from nineteenth and century to present, in the moments of contemplation, waiting, idleness or complaints of bored characters.

NeMLA 2021: Examining Contemporary Representations of Armed Conflict (Panel)

updated: 
Monday, September 28, 2020 - 2:03pm
Katie Harling-Lee / Durham University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

Description: 

This session will analyze representations of armed conflict in contemporary media, exploring how these representations might influence the popular understanding of global and civil conflict and the way that these representations of conflict might be read as an attempt to change (or maintain) a certain world. We welcome a broad range of papers, particularly aiming for a global perspective on the ethical debate of representing armed conflict in stylized media, as we interrogate how these representations might affect popular imaginations of conflict and how we as researchers might form an analytical approach to representations of conflict.

Evil Children: Children and Evil
2nd Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Sunday 18th April 2021 - Monday 19th April 2021
Vienna, Austria

The idea of the child as innocent, as pure, the ‘little angel’ in need of protection from the harsh realities of life and the corrupting influences of the world around us has come to dominate our thinking, language, values, social policies and educational philosophies. Children are seen as ‘little people’, ‘blank slates’, works in progress who are loved, nurtured and guided as they grow to become mature, rational and responsible adults.

Monsters and the Monstrous
2nd Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Friday 16th April 2021 - Saturday 17th April 2021
Vienna, Austria

“I’m hated, execrated, those I meet are repelled by me. They want me crucified, and maybe their feelings are all too justified,” sang the American band The Bastard Fairies in their 2010 title track “Man-Made Monster.” The lyrics of the song oscillate between cackling threats of murder and cannibalism, and the lament, “It didn’t have to be this way, I’m a man-made monster led astray.”

Music is commonly regarded as a universal language, and yet it is also through music that the fiercest of nationalistic sentiments and inspirations for protest and rebellion have been expressed.

Evil - Traditions and Transformations
3rd Global Interdisciplinary Conference

Friday 16th April 2021 - Saturday 17th April 2021
Vienna, Austria

Both essentialist and contextual notions of Evil – the things we do as well as the things that happen to us – continue to be a stubborn and destructive presence in our lives. But what is “Evil”? What are the moral, political, philosophical, pragmatic, individual and global implications of calling something or someone “Evil”? What impact does that have on personal and social identities? How are concepts of Evil mediated and represented through different cultural forms? If ascribed too loosely is the intended effect of the term (whatever that may be) diminished?

In his Funeral Oration, Pericles illustrates the low status of women in ancient Athens, saying “A woman’s reputation is highest when men say little about her, whether it be good or evil.” Despite Pericles’ admonition, women held a central place in Classical literature and mythology, which cast them in a diverse array of roles: goddesses, slaves, mothers, daughters, virgins, whores, and warriors. These depictions laid the groundwork for the representations of women in subsequent literature and have continued to shape our understanding of gender. This session will explore depictions of women and gender in Greco-Roman texts and its impact on the literature of subsequent periods. Possible approaches include by are not limited to:

Reintroducing Feminist Intellectual Traditions

This volume intends to offer a systematic re-introduction to feminism’s intellectual legacy.
We encourage an ampler view of feminist theory which extends beyond its production in
the global North and beyond the problematics of location, with the North/South dichotomy
often resulting not only in oppositional notions of agency (active agents vs silent victims)
but also in competing for cultural interests (civil rights and queer theory vs decolonization,
economic justice, and disarmament). One of the aims in reintroducing feminist intellectual
traditions from the perspective of their multiple strands across the globe is to reflect, in as

Dear colleagues!

We invite you to participate in the online IV. International Conference on Awareness “LANGUAGE and AWARENESS”. Time: 2-4 December, 2020 (Big Blue Button platform).

The language reflects the essence of a thousand-year existence of a man in society, passed through a time filter. In this regard, a language consisting of tens of thousands of words and forms, delving into the details of its structure and functioning, appears before us as a universal system that controls the existence of people, society, nation and culture.
