The Joys of the Erotic: Building Human Connections
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary project

29th to 30th June 2018
Palermo, Italy

The erotic. A complex, tangled, and ephemeral web of meeting points, interfaces and intersections at the centre of human experiences. It informs our lives, shapes our perceptions and pulls us toward one another while being itself shaped by shifting tastes and perceptions. Shrouded in mystery, it is tantalising, alluring and dangerous all at once. Eroticism is frequently displayed in film, embedded in music, intimated in art and literature, as well as in the advertising on city streets, travel shows and fashion events. Above all, it builds pathways which bring us closer to each other.

(Un)Common Worlds

Human-Animal Studies Conference — 7–9 August 2018 Turku, Finland

The Finnish Society for Human-Animal Studies (YKES) is proud to organize the first international Human-Animal Studies conference held in Finland.

Humans and other animals share spaces and create communities together. They touch each other in various symbolic and material ways, constantly crossing and redrawing communal, ethical and very practical boundaries. As of late, this multifarious renegotiation of human-animal relations has sparked intense debates both in the public arena and in academia.

Small Cinemas Conference

From the Grassroots to the Global

 November 9-10, 2018

In an increasingly globalized world where digital technology has gained greater access to socio-economically marginalized communities, the parameters of small cinemas have broadened their scope to include digitally shot material from portable devices like cellphones in an era of transnational internet distribution alongside its ongoing and historical association with national cinemas and celluloid-based products.

International Conference

Conference to be held in Madrid on June 22-23, 2018

Since the discovery of DNA the metaphor of writing to the genetic makeup of living beings has been a tempting one to engage. As George and Muriel Beadle wrote in 1966 (and as Marcello Barbieri points to in his essay “What is Biosemiotics?”) “The deciphering of the genetic code has revealed our possession of a language much older than hieroglyphics, a language as old as life itself, a language that is the most living language of all—even if its letters are invisible and its words are buried in the cells of our bodies” (Beadle and Beadle 1966). 

 

9/11 and the Beginning of the End of Liberal Democracy: Fictional Perspectives

deadline for submissions:

  International Conference to be held on 27-28 February 2018

at Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India

 

The conference hopes to bring together original research papers on the images of Islam and Muslims post 9/11 in literary texts and media discourses and engage meaningfully with Islam as a human and historical phenomenon where Muslims are neither victims nor threats  but active participants within modern liberal structures of societies that are themselves ready to shift from an ‘an uncritical acceptance of the category of religion’ to a ‘critical interrogation of religion as a category’ to understand Islam.
