15th Global Conference: Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness


15th Global Conference
Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness

Saturday 22nd March - Monday 24th March 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to examine and explore issues surrounding evil and human wickedness. In wrestling with evil(s) we are confronted with a multi-layered phenomenon which invites people from all disciplines, professions and vocations to come together in dialogue and wrestle with questions that cross the boundaries of the intellectual, the emotional and the personal. Underlying these efforts there is the sense that in grappling with evil we are in fact grappling with questions and issues of our own humanity.

The complex nature of evil is reflected in this call for presentations: in recognising that no one approach or perspective can adequately do justice to what we mean by evil, so there is an equal recognition that no one form of presentation ought to take priority over others. We solicit contributions which may be

- papers, panels, workshops, reports
- case studies
- performance pieces; dramatic readings; poetic renditions; short stories; creative writings
- works of art; works of music

We will also consider other forms of contribution. Successful proposals will normally be given a 20 minute presentation space. Perspectives are sought from all academic disciplines along with, for example, those working in the caring professions, journalism, the media, the military, prison services, politics, psychiatry and other work-related, ngo and vocational areas.

Key themes for reflection may include, but are not limited to:

- what is evil?
- is there 'new' evil, or are evil acts/events pretty much the same across time with only our interpretive lenses changing as cultures shift?
- the nature and sources of evil and human wickedness
- evil animals? Wicked creatures?
- the places and spaces of evil
- crimes, criminals and justice
- psychopathic behaviour - mad or bad?
- villains, wicked characters and heroes
- vice and virtue
- choice, responsibility, and diminished responsibility
- social and cultural reactions to evil and human wickedness
- political evils; evil, power and the state
- evil and gender; evil and the feminine
- evil children
- hell, hells, damnation: evil and the afterlife
- the portrayal of evil and human wickedness in the media and popular culture
- suffering in literature and film
- individual acts of evil, group violence, holocaust and genocide; obligations of bystanders
- terrorism, war, ethnic cleansing
- fear, terror, horror
- the search for meaning and sense in evil and human wickedness
- the nature and tasks of theodicy
- religious understandings of evil and human wickedness
- postmodern approaches to evil and human wickedness
- ecocriticism, evil and suffering
- evil and the use/abuse of technology; evil in cyberspace

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

What to Send
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 10th October 2013. All submissions are at least double blind peer reviewed. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 17th January 2014. Abstracts should be submitted simultaneously to the Organising Chairs; abstracts may be in Word or RTF formats with the following information and in this order:

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: Evil15 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 to 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! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.

Capacity Building Workshop on Budget Analysis and Advocacy

Social Accountability and Budget Analysis Network (SABAN) in collaboration with *Centre for Budget and Governance Accountability (CBGA),
New Delhi* is conducting a *two-day residential Capacity Building Workshop on Budget Analysis and Advocacy in Thiruvananthapuram on August 31st and September 1st, 2013.

This is a follow up to the workshop for local legislators that was jointly held by the Institute for Sustainable Development and Governance (ISDG),
Trivandrum and CBGA (www.cbgaindia.org) at Bodhigram, Adoor on September 18th and 19th 2012. Resource persons will be eminent economists and advocacy experts from CBGA, New Delhi.

SABAN hopes to adopt a decentralized approach with the objective of incorporating voices and demands from across Kerala in the process of
advocacy on the State Budget. In its endeavor to strengthen people's voices in the budget process, SABAN additionally undertakes capacity building workshops for civil society actors so as to empower them to understand institutions and processes in budgeting, budget priorities, budgeting for the disadvantaged sections, etc. Selected participants will be provided continuous training by international experts in the field of budget analysis and advocacy.


NGOs, civil society organizations and CBOs are requested to nominate one potential person *from your organization for this capacity building
workshop. This workshop would be absolutely free of cost and total number of participants would be restricted to 60.SABAN is a multi-stakeholder network of civil society activists, researchers, media persons and policy experts across the state that came together in January 2013 with the aim of building a knowledge network to promote transparency and accountability in budgeting and governance. ISDG serves as the secretariat of SABAN.

Over the last seven months, the membership of SABAN has grown and more than 150 individuals and civil society organizations participated in Kerala's First Ever Pre-budget Consultation with Civil Society organized jointly by SABAN and CBGA on January 30, 2013 in which all the members of the Finance Department including the Honourable Finance Minister participated. A charter of demands was submitted which formed the basis of advocacy with policymakers and members of legislature.

Please find the application attached along with the invitation.

4th Global Conference: Making Sense of: The Patient: Therapeutic Approaches


4th Global Conference
Making Sense of: The Patient: Therapeutic Approaches

Tuesday 18th March - Thursday 20th March 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations

To witness and be aware of the fullness of the impact of exceptional nursing... is a sacred emotional uplifting experience... This realisation permeates ones whole being, bringing peace, endless gratitude and the deepest respect. As a result one can become a better person, simply wanting to radiate the same love to all within oneâ 셲 reach.
(A Patient)

A significant focus for this interdisciplinary project is our annual conference which provides valuable opportunities for participants to become involved in thoughtful, unique, and creative dialogues with one another. In this engaging and responsive forum presenters are encouraged to enthusiastically share something of themselves and their disciplines, and through the exploration, examination, and discussion of their work with colleagues nurture new knowledge and interdisciplinary relationships.

Through its research and publications, and from a number of health and therapeutic care perspectives, this project began by characterising the patient as a liminal figure in an unstable landscape. As a result conference participants have begun discussions that explore the positioning of patients, families and institutions, helping professionals and clinicians, the nature of practice and the significance of theory in terms of: quality of care; professional and personal expectations; reluctance and resistance; institutional and individual needs; and, the value and role of education.

In this next stage of the project we would like to warmly encourage participants to consider the patient in terms of collaborative therapeutic relationships - to site the patient in a place of care where she might be defined by the quality and strength of her relationships rather than her liminality. In addition, this project invites a critical examination of those therapeutic approaches, roles, skills, and conditions of relationship that make agency possible, establish collaboration, and assist in mutually helpful outcomes. Often the practice of these approaches is narrowly defined in terms of the curative benefits to the patient or client. However, this conference will add to the scope of previous discussions by capturing and examining the myriad roles that relationships play in effectively assisting individual patients and client groups toward the achievement of their therapeutic goals.

Presentations, papers, workshops, presentations and pre-formed panels are all invited on any of the following themes:

-The heart of patient/helper relationships - theory and practice -: past; present; and, future;
-Re-visioning patient experience through a humanist lens;
-On the ground - the sacred and the profane - therapeutic relationships from patients', helpers', and organisational perspectives;
-Identifying and supporting patients' relational needs in different settings;
-Collaborative projects that assist patients to be, and to help, themselves;
-Patient-centred education and training;
-Key philosophical, ethical, and legal issues in the organisation and management of patient and helper relationships across the lifespan;
-Cultural perceptions of relationship in patient care;
-Changing states - from person to patient - accounts of experience and representations from literature, the Arts, film, and the digital media;
-Preserving and nurturing relationships in a therapeutic setting - case studies, personal and experiential accounts, and institutional facts;
-The present and future roles of new global technologies in patient care.
-Choosing life - perceiving and seeking positive and growthful positions in the face of difficult life situations ('Krankheitsgewinn'), attending to opportunities for psycho-spiritual, psychological, psycho-social and physical development.

Presentations that deal with related themes will also be considered.

It is our aim that a number of these interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary dialogues will be ongoing and that they will ultimately develop into a series of related cross context research project. It is also anticipated that these will support and encourage the establishment of useful collaborative networks, and the creation, presentation, and publication of original research. Through such richness and diversity it is expected that a body of knowledge and expertise will be established that serves both individuals and organisations.

What to Send
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 11th October 2013. 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 17th January 2014.

THEME:
Spanning the fields of economics, finance, business, science and society, and related fields, the theme of the conference invites scholarly papers projecting substantive ideas in the field of interdisciplinary unity of theory and practice in diversely interactive and integrative intellectual inquiry. The aim of the conference at the end is to initiate intellectual inquiry in the field of epistemological unity of the socio-scientific order for understanding critical realism through heterodox paradigms. Scholarly papers would also critically investigate the problems of orthodox intellectual experience and its reconstruction in the light of interdisciplinary and integrative reasoning, thought and practice.

Examples of topics, but not restricted to these alone, are:
1. Epistemological interdisciplinary paradigms overarching the field of economics, finance, business, science and society, and related fields
2. Development, sustainability, institutions and markets in a generalized theory of social systems
3. Theory and practice in social and public policy-making with interdisciplinary focus: inter-country and inter-institutional cases
4. System and cybernetic perspectives of studying complex interdisciplinary problems
5. Ethical issues in theories of justice, organization, market and economic relations, and business issues
6. The ethical dimensions of science and society, and the concept of wellbeing for sustainable human development
7. Institutions, markets, economy, policy and human resource development for poverty alleviation, social participation, and empowerment
8. Comparative economic, financial, business and banking systems for socioeconomic development and social change
9. Village development and urban sector linkages: international experiences and comparisons
10. Socio-scientific evaluation of international development and financial programs including technological change, innovation, development finance institutions, and international trade
11. Analytical models of general and specific interdisciplinary and integrative systems in science, society, institutions and the business world.
12. Other possible topics relevant to the theme, to be considered by the organisers.

Following the conference the refereed papers will be invited for submission in a number of special issues of the Emerald-published international academic journal, 'Humanomics: International Journal of Systems and Ethics' (Vol. 32 and 33, Nos. 1-8, 2014-15), covering the theme of the conference.
