2nd Global Conference: Sins, Vices and Virtues (March, 2013: Lisbon, Portugal)



2nd Global Conference
Sins, Vices and Virtues

Wednesday 13th March - Friday 15th March 2013
Lisbon, Portugal

Call For Presentations:

Not every culture recognises the notion of sin but all of them recognise the idea of a religious or spiritual transgression. All or nearly all the 'Christian' vices-virtues were those espoused by Greek-Roman philosophers first and are, therefore, not exclusively Christian in the origin. The Judaic idea of 'sin' varies considerably across time and the accountability of society/group vs. individual fluctuates as well. Also, the (Latin) idea of sin as 'transgression' or 'breaking of the (divine) law' is at variance with the (Greek) idea of sin as 'missing the mark' and 'mistake/error.'

The idea of virtues likewise does not seem to be universal, though all offer guidelines to what they consider 'right living'. Actions that violate rules of morality and the guidelines concerning virtuous living have been the foundations of every culture across centuries.

However, due to civilisational progress and secularisation, the ideas and definitions behind the variously understood concepts of 'sin', 'vice' and 'virtue' have changed. For instance, in Christian culture the traditional list of the Church Fathers was unofficially updated to include social sins prevalent in what is called the era of 'unstoppable globalisation' and these DO not necessarily embrace Christians only.

Thus, apart from the familiar: Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed, Sloth, which individuals were to test their conscience for, the Roman Catholic Church now cautions the whole of humanity inter alia about: Genetic modification and human experimentations; Polluting the environment; Social injustice; Causing poverty; Paedophilia, contraception, abortion; Taking drugs; and Financial gluttony. Not only are the 'new sins' not necessarily Christian in nature but they seem inter- and transcultural, disregarding religious persuasion. It seems no longer the matter of individual transgression that has spiritual repercussions, but rather the sin whose subject is the entire, global and transcultural society. Furthermore, the question that arises is whether the notions of virtue are changing their meaning in the commercially-driven 'dog-eat-dog' modern world as well, and whether to be 'good' or 'virtuous' means the same for all cultures.

Are we then to talk about a completely new culture-blind hamartiology or new schematization of virtues? What are the real changes between medieval and today's religious/moral doctrines preached across the modern world and its diverse cultural make-up? What about non-Christian cultures with different categories of religious/spiritual transgressions? May one actually still talk about 'sin' at all or is it an obsolete word in a multicultural world? Are all Western Christian sins, vices and virtues recognised and shared by other cultures as well?

This interdisciplinary conference seeks a new, provocative, intercultural perspective on some enduring truths concerning virtues and vices, sins and transgressions. Do we need a new list of moral commandments in the globalised, multicultural 21st century? Should they be religious or secular in nature? Who are these aimed at? And, finally, is it possible, reaching back to the origins of humanity, to find common denominators between religious/spiritual definitions of vices and virtues of all belief systems? Can discussions of 'sin' not introduce theology and religion into the contemporary discussion?

We are inviting scholars, theologians, anthropologists, artists, teachers, psychologists, therapists, philosophers, teachers of ethics, etc. to present papers, reports, works of art, work-in-progress, workshops and pre-formed panels on issues related but not limited to the following themes:

- The genealogy of the idea of sin or religious transgression around the world
- Anthropology of transgression
- Sinful/Transgressive actions, evil thoughts, religious taboos in Christian and non-Christian cultures
- What are the pre-Islam Arabic ideas of sin? How do these influence Islamic thought and how do they shape or not shape fundamentalist Islamic political thought?
- Lexicon of sinfulness/transgression and virtuousness in Christian and non-Christian cultures
- Social functions of sins and virtues
- Modern sins and vices: Individual and social; religious and secular; intercultural
- Social 'sins': 'Institutional' and 'structural'; their social ramifications
- '-isms' in religious and spiritual discourse
- Communal versus individual sins/transgressions: Do societies sin? How are societies policing them?
- The concept of sin or spiritual transgression/deviation and philosophy
- The notions of 'sins', vices and virtues on the political arena (secular morality or no morality)
- Psychology of sin ('sinful' or 'abnormal'?; the concept of sin after Darwin, Nietzsche and Freud)
- Emotions and moral decision-making
- How to represent evil and morality in art: Representation of sins and sinners, vices, transgressions and virtues in art, literature, movies in Christian and non-Christian cultures
- Genderisation of sins, vices and virtues in Christian and non-Christian cultures
- Ideology of sin/religious transgression and technological progress: G/god or the Machine; 'sins' of productive necessity
- Theologies and Nature: Environmental studies and the notions of 'sin', transgression and virtue
- Sins/Vices and/in the Media (ie adveritising)
- Medieval crusades and modern (holy) wars
- Sinless, non-transgressive life in 21st century: Possibility or wishful thinking?
- Fear of the confessional or 'McDonald-isation' of spiritual life; is confession needed at all?
- Public and penitential practices across the ages and cultures
- Punishment for sin/transgression and rewarding virtue across the ages and cultures: individual and collective
- Visions of Hell, Paradise and other afterlife Realms across cultures

PROJECT TITLE: Financial Exclusion in the UK



UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL LANCASHIRE

PhD Bursary
Lancashire Business School
Reference No RB-12-LBS2

PROJECT TITLE: Financial Exclusion in the UK 

Applications are invited for a full-time bursary available in the
 Lancashire Business School.  The
bursary is tenable for up to 3 years for a PhD (via MPhil route) [subject to
satisfactory progress] and is open to both Home, EU and International
students. The bursary will cover the cost of tuition fees at the Home/EU
rate.  International students will be required to fund the difference
between the Home/EU and International fee rate.  The successful applicant
will commence on 1 January 2013. Please note deferred starts from this date
will not be permitted.  

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The conjuncture of elements of the recent financial crises has returned the
access to finance agenda across Western economies, including the UK.
Shrinking economic growth and changes in the welfare system are likely to
exacerbate the financial stress faced by  financially vulnerable residents.
Broadly, the financial exclusion is  conceived as the  exertion or
averseness to access mainstream financial services. The statistics reveal
that in the UK, around 1.5 million adults do not have access to a bank
account; 7.8 million people are unable to access mainstream credit; and
people on benefits borrow an  estimated £330  million a year on home credit,
paying £140 million in interest. The indubitable link between financial and
social exclusion, as well on its impact on poverty and inequality debates
obliges appropriate analytical investigations into the nature  and  causes
of financial exclusion. Furthermore, despite the large advances in defining
and  measuring financial exclusion, the depiction of its determinants using
cutting-edge methodologies is still in its infant stage.

This research project is designed to advance our understanding of (1)
determinants of  financial exclusion in the UK, (2) interaction between
different forms of financial exclusion in the UK and (3) critical analysis
of required regulatory and protection measures to enhance financial
inclusion.
Applicants should have, or expect to receive a minimum of UK 2:1 honours
degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area.

5th Global Conference: Hope


5th Global Conference
Hope

Sunday 10th March â �Tuesday 12th March 2013
Lisbon, Portugal

Call For Presentations:

When Pandora's box was emptied of all the ills that would plague the world, one small winged creature still remained: hope. The project inquires into the nature of this gift. Is hope, in fact, a good, encouraging us to do or be good? Or is it an evil; an illusion, perhaps an impossible fantasy? How does hope manifest itself in the world, in language, literature, and the arts? How â �should â �hope be encouraged? Is hope individual or collective in nature? Or both? What does hope contribute to individual or national identity?

This inter- and multi-disciplinary research and publications project seeks to explore the multi-layered ideas, actions, and cultural traditions regarding hope. The project aims to explore the nature of hope, its relationship with other emotions or movements, and its manifestation in the actions of individuals, cultures, communities and nations. The project will also consider the history of hope, its philosophical or scientific 'legitimacy', the meaning(s) of hope â �especially in the nascent field of future studies, and the distinctions between hope and optimism. Representations of hope in film, literature, television, theatre and radio will be analysed; cultural traditions of hope will be considered.

Presentations, papers, performances, reports, works-in-progress and workshops are invited on issues related to any of the following themes:

- Theories of Hope
- Pedagogies of Hope
- Hope in Literature/Literature as Hope
- Hope in Art/Art as Hope
- Hope in Music/Music as Hope
- Hope and Religious Teaching
- Hope and the Beginning of Life
- Hope and Despair
- Hope and Reconciliation
- Hope and Illness
- Hope and Loss
- Hope and the End of Life
- Hope and Oppression
- Consciousness and Hope
- Between Hopelessness and Hope
- Hope vs. Illusion
- Hope and Media
- Psychologies and Hope
- Philosophies of Hope
- Hope and Forgiveness
- Remarriage Following Divorce: 'The Triumph of Hope over Experience'
- Love and Hope
- Good Works as Hope

The Steering Group particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed panel proposals.

What to Send
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 12th October 2012. All submissions are minimally double blind peer reviewed where appropriate. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 18th January 2013.

a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract f) up to 10 key words
E-mails should be entitled: HOPE Abstract Submission.

Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using footnotes and any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). We acknowledge receipt and answer all paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace!

PSYCHOANALYSIS AND POLITICS is a conference series that aims to
address how crucial contemporary political issues may be fruitfully
explored through psychoanalytic theory, and vice versa: how political
issues may reflect back on psychoanalytic thinking. The series is
interdisciplinary; we invite theoretical contributions and historical,
literary or clinical case studies from philosophers, sociologists,
psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, group analysts, literary theorists,
historians and others. Perspectives from different psychoanalytic
schools are most welcome. We emphasise room for discussion among the
presenters and participants, thus the symposium series creates a space
where representatives of different perspectives come together and
engage with one another's contributions, participating in a community
of thought.

The conference fee, which includes lunch and dinner Friday and
Saturday, is £ 155. To sign up, please e-mail:

International Conference on "Technology, Innovation and Social Change"


International Conference Technology, Innovation and Social Change

Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, India
Centre for Social Entrepreneurship 
International Conference 
Technology, Innovation and Social Change
22 - 24 January, 2013
Call for Papers
The Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, Tata Institute of Social Sciences is organising a three day International Conference on "Technology, Innovation and Social Change" during 22-24 January, 2013.  The aim of the Conference is to provide a platform to academicians and practitioners from multiple disciplines to debate and deliberate on social change that is encompassed by innovation and technology. The Conference will help the Scholars to produce publishable quality of research papers. Technological expertise plays a  significant role in the global economy (Archibugi & Lundvall, 2001). Many agree that combination of technology and innovation could attribute to inclusive growth. Though several technological inventions are produced, the intention of inclusive growth across the globe remains unachieved. There are greater challenges  where  science, technology and innovation  become the  key to improve economic performance and social well-being. However, the concept of social well-being is constantly linked to social change. Unless existing social settings, that restrict the participation of some social groups in societal life are not transformed, achieving social well being is going to remain a difficult task. On the other hand, entrepreneurship as a movement produced technologies which are used for achieving significant growth. However, the growth that the business enterprises have brought could not transform the social settings which everyone is part of. As a result, there is always a kind of  conflict between business and society whether they both are mutually beneficial or not.
It is observed that globalization has tremendously affected the functioning of poor and deprived, and it is more disastrous in case of developing countries. Globalisation has been always considered as a process of exchanging resources among the nations. Though Globalisation is expected to benefit both developed and developing countries, in reality, it is the developed countries gained a lot through utilizing the cheap resources available in the developing countries. For instance, various multinational corporations have outsourced their business processes at developing countries due to the available cheap resources. We also have to accept that the developing countries have also benefited up to some extent  while  they imported the technological expertise available in the  West. However, globalization has failed to take into account the usefulness of certain local innovative technologies in developing countries. This could be due to because of two 
reasons - a) local technologies may not be cost effective; b) available cheap technologies from the developed countries. Even though, the local technologies are not cost effective,it might be suitable for the well being of these societies. Moreover, the gap between knowledge availability in the developing countries and the exploitation of the same for the improvement of the wellbeing might be an issue related to technology development process. In addition, there is a section which argues that attaining social wellbeing can be easily achieved provided that steady economic growth is maintained. Also, the reality describes that the growth in economic sense never help the different excluded social groups to attain what they have  not  been  accessed so far. We may not get any better instances than the present Indian context to describe the reality, as more economic growth we attempt the more social disparities we witness. At this juncture, social entrepreneurship is considered as a new model of developmental discourse that balances both economic and social growth. Social entrepreneurs strive to change social settings so that everyone is given space to enjoy his/her rights to lead a pleasant life. They are considered as pioneers and path breakers in their respective fields. They question the status quo and exploit the resources and opportunities to build societies that guarantee rights to the most excluded. There are two stages involved in the overall usages of technologies - one is production of technologies by the entrepreneurs and the second, usages of the same technologies for the social development by the social sector organisations. Significantly, emergence of social entrepreneurs has resulted in social leaders entering into both manufacturing and using the technologies to promote social development.   Social entrepreneurs have adopted innovative processes to bring social change. In this 
process, the state also acts as a dominant actor. However, neither the  State nor civil society initiations alone can promote social change. There is a greater scope for both these institutions to partner and promote social ventures and social change. Eco system that includes public and private sector institutions such as Government, incubation centers, corporate social responsibility initiatives must demonstrate commitment and active participation to bring about social change. 
We conclude, in order to reach out  to  the most excluded, service delivery has to be innovative. It needs to focus on three major areas - a) new technologies, that are capable of producing new products in a cost-effective manner; b) social innovation that ensures distribution of goods and services; c) be adaptive in order to integrate the goods and services to  the local settings (Widdus & White, 2004). Hence, technology and innovation should play complimentary roles in the process of social change. Given the significance of  this  domain, there is  a  need for discussion and debate on aspects related to the discourse of social change. 
Research Questions 
The proposed International Conference will throw light on  the  nature, significance as well as relationship  between technology, innovation and social change. We submit the following research questions to kick-start the process. These questions are indicative in nature and must not limit creative participation of scholars, practitioners and policy makers to add to the list. 
1. What is the role of technology in social change in the era of globalisation?
2. How do you see  changing in technology as  the discourse of development? Has technology  acquired a new meaning  or it has  become the driving force of 
development? 
3. Is the process of social innovation caught in the discourse of technology development resulting in de-politicization of development discourse?
4. Are technology and social innovation discourse aim at structural change as an agenda of social change? 
5. Is technology and social innovation subservient to global capital or has it potential to question the hegemony of global capital? 
6. Are there specific technologies that have boosted enterprises and provide space for experimentation? 
7. What kind of capabilities our research and educational institutions must develop to produce new technologies?  
8. What kind of technologies exists and deployed for the grassroots level social transformation?
9. What is the role of Incubation  Centres in  promotion of technologies that are useful for social change?
10. What are the existing enterprises and models for experimenting with technologies that facilitates the process of social transformation? 
11. Resource distribution appears to be a major problem in  the Capitalist mode of production. Can deployment of technology address this issue of resource distribution?
12. What is the role of leadership for deployment of technology in bringing social change?
13. What are innovative practices (formal and informal) that have resulted in producing new technologies with social mission?
14. Do collaborations offer better performance that attributes for social change?
15. Is Corporate Social Responsibility fostering social change?
16. What is the role of Government in promoting 'technology for social change'? 
17. Are there traditional knowledge and technologies fostered by communities for 
their own wellbeing? How do they operate? 
18. What are the technological inventions that have changed the social orgnanisations? 
19. Is resource constraint environment supportive to innovation? 
20. Are developed nations innovating technologies and deploying them to deal their social problems?  
21. Are the developing countries just limited to use the technologies or they are also producing them?
22. Do developing countries import  cost effective technologies from  developed countries?
We invite papers, both theoretical and empirical, that address one or more research questions mentioned above. Authors can also send papers on other related research questions.  They must submit  an abstract  in about 500 words explaining the intent for participation, research question and research plan to Dr. Rama Krishna Reddy Kummitha on his email id krishna.reddy@tiss.edu not later than August 30, 2012.
