The world as we know it is undergoing dynamic transformation. Many gains have been made in recent decades towards loosening the grip of some of the belief systems that have enabled many systemic inequalities in the modern world. The ideological underpinnings of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy and coloniality, for example, have been rigorously challenged and are being steadily eroded, leading to changes in legal frameworks, social practices and the norms of acceptable everyday behaviour. The highly visible and vocal Black Lives Matter movement, which regained international momentum following the murder of George Floyd, has become a widely recognized recent manifestation of this refusal to abide the injustices and indignities of the past.

To find a point of intersection between the realms of fashion and psychoanalysis, we should first try to define what exactly is fashion. As an expression of creativity, fashion could serve as a medium to canalize the inner life of the individuum, which is a concept that evokes the notion of the subconscious. Some artists and designers have already undergone an exploration of this field of work, Dalí and Schiaparelli being the most relevant case among them. Despite its clear connection with the principles of the surrealist movement, which generates its creativity precisely from the shadows of the human psyche, fashion articulates its imagery in highly symbolized language.
Digital Symposium: 20 November 2021
“Fantastika” – a term appropriated from a range of Slavonic languages by John Clute – embraces the genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror, but can also include Alternate History, Gothic, Steampunk, Young Adult Dystopic Fiction, or any other radically imaginative narrative space. Our goal is to bring together academics, independent researchers, creators, and audiences who share an interest in this diverse range of fields with the aim of opening up new dialogues, productive controversies, and critical collaborations.
The documentary film is a non-fictional motion picture that shapes and interprets factual material; the intent is to capture "reality" with a view to inform, educate, entertain, or maintain a historical record. Documentaries have contributed to the development of realism in movies; the style has been influential from the earliest days of filmmaking. Critic and theoretician Bill Nichols has characterised it as "a practice, a cinematic tradition, and a mode of audience reception that remains without clear boundaries".
Applying diverse methods from across subject disciplines the conference will explore fashion and style in wide-ranging contexts. It will examine connections between fashion, body and culture and will focus on dress, cosmetics, coiffure and body alterations (piercing, tattooing, circumcision, aesthetic surgery, etc).
How does our dress or hair style create our identity and status? How is it concerned with sexual and body politics? Is the desire to be "in fashion" universal or unique to Western culture? These and other questions we set out to discuss at the conference.
Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
Nowadays we live and breathe media, minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour. News, television, social media, celebrity culture, music, and more. As the media and communication sector becomes ever more diverse and dynamic, and we are going to consume it, we also need to understand it.
Today, the new bio-technical forms of life produced by mainstream digital media and by a whole range of artistic and non-artistic practices confront us with unprecedented theoretical questions, which can be dealt with by combining profound and perplexing perspectives. We need appropriate theoretical frameworks in order to understand the phenomena.

Engaging the Audience: From Antiquity to the Renaissance
In The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1959), Erving Goffman likens social interaction to theatre, describing “performance” as “all the activity of an individual which occurs during a period marked by his continuous presence before a particular set of observers and which has some influence on the observers.” The individual coming into contact with other people is like an actor on stage, who will employ available theatrical devices in order to manage the impression made on the audience.

The winter school will cover the key concepts and ideas of narrative theory and will offer an opportunity of creative engagement in storytelling and narrative interpretation. While lectures will provide theoretical overview and critical perspectives on the nature of narrative and its various structures, elements and uses, the workshops will be based around discussion of fictional and non-fictional texts, films and other media. They will include academic and creative writing sessions and will largely focus on memory and subjectivity, (oral) history and (auto)biographical practices.
