CFP: [Cultural-Historical] Interdisciplinary Conference on Fetisihism, Istanbul

full name / name of organization: 
Tuna Erdem

Fetishism is used in three distinct but, arguably, interconnected ways: commodity fetishism, sexual
fetishism and religious fetishism. In all cases, the fetish is always, an object that exceeds both its
value and its function as a mere object and always a stand-in for something else. This conference
aims to explore what this “something else” may be, how the substitution functions and the possible
connections between the three kinds of fetishism.
Papers are solicited from disciplines that include, but are not limited to, cultural studies, film
studies, literature, art history, cultural anthropology, sociology, psychology, psychoanalysis,
political science, economics, queer studies, women’s studies, TV studies and media studies.
Please submit abstracts, no longer than 350 words, by using the 'submission' button on the web
