E[RACE]ED: METHODOLOGY OF THE REPRESSED

9th Global Conference: The Erotic

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations

Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.

Every culture has its conception, interpretation, dissemination and reformulation of myths on a grand spectrum from oral and written narratives to aural and visual arts. Furthermore, myths from different cultures have similar formation mechanisms no matter how diverse social processes cultures might have undergone. The underlying motivation behind the similarity of myths, even myth-making processes, might be considered as deriving from various aspects and layers of cultural memory. Myths as one of the basic building blocks of culture are continuously rewoven into the fabric of memory.
Subjects for discussion may include, but are not limited to:
• Comparative creation myths
• Ancient myths and/vs. modern myths

5th Global Conference: Making Sense of: Suffering

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:

This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore if, or to what extent, meaning can be found in suffering. During the course of living our lives, we are invariably forced to stop and question why we suffer – be it through illness, pain, loss, grief or the multitude of distressing circumstances which we encounter. Problems arise in a variety of contexts and due to a bewildering variety of conditions. And because our lives are constant streams of experience, the nature of suffering and consequently the "meaning" of such suffering continually varies and changes.

Deadline extended for University of York Centre for Modern Studies PG Symposium, Nature at War - send abstracts by 22nd April.

Taking place during the centenary of the First World War, 'Nature at War' is an interdisciplinary one-day symposium organised by the Postgraduate Forum of the Centre for Modern Studies at the University of York, exploring the dynamic between nature (broadly-conceived) and war from the mid-nineteenth to early twenty-first centuries. Is the dynamic of nature and war essentially one of conflict, and if so, how can that conflict itself avoid being 'unnatural'? How do ideas of naturalness and unnaturalness manifest themselves in war contexts?

"The Hermeneutics of Hell: Devilish Visions and Visions of the Devil in World Literature"

November 7-8, 2014

Gordon College, Wenham, MA

"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and hail a materialist or magician with the same delight." C. S. Lewis. The Screwtape Letters
