1st Global Conference: Empathy

1st Global Conference: Empathy

Friday 7th November - Sunday 10th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:

The will to understand or to attempt to understand others by imagining what it might feel like to be them; how it might feel to experience the world from their shoes â€" from inside their skin, is arguably one of the central achievements of humankind. This is the human trait known as 'empathy'. It underpins much of our lives â€" from the ways in which people relate to and care for one another within families and in bigger groups, to the ways in which we communicate with one another through literature, art, film, advertising and digital media. Many professions â€" from nursing, counselling psychotherapy and medicine, to teaching, product design, architecture, advertising and stand-up comedy, depend at least partly, on empathic skill.

It is possible to empathise with others whose lives are very different from our own, and because empathy involves the use of the imagination, we can even empathise with people in experiences that we are unlikely ever to have, or perhaps that we will never be able to have. Though empathy is often viewed through 'rose-coloured spectacles', as if it is always a good thing, it can be put to bad uses, for example by bullies who use empathic skill to know how best to harm their victims.

Some people believe that everyone who is aware of others has the ability to empathise, at least to some extent; others disagree, believing, rather, that some individuals, who are often referred to as 'psychopathic', have no ability to empathise. Others again believe that empathy is both a gift and a skill that can be developed. They note that while some people seem to empathise naturally, others don't, and argue that given the right experiences, most people can develop empathic ability.

Empathy: imagining the world from the perspective of another or others, will provide a space in which academics as well as practitioners and professionals for whom empathy is centrally important, can explore the part empathy plays in human life. It will, for example, be a place for reflection on its significance for practitioners in health and social care; education; architecture and town planning; politics; the police; advertising; media of all kinds; the news industry in all its forms; film and theatre, and the fine arts, including the work of artists and those who work in museums and art galleries.

Proposals are invited for individual contributions and for symposia of three closely related papers that address the place that empathy has to play in any area of human life, including:

- Health and social care.
- Empathy in storytelling of all kinds, including novels and short stories, theatre; narrative and documentary film; digital storytelling of all kinds.
- Empathy and the arts.
- The communications industry, including both print and digital journalism; film, television and radio.
- Empathy in education.
- Explorations of empathy in academic research, by, for example, psychologists, philosophers, theologians, nurses, counsellors, teachers and literary theorists.

Proposals might, for example, address questions such as:

-Is empathy a natural ability, or a learned and practiced skill?
-What is the relationship between empathy and sympathy?
-Do empathic people always display helpful, caring and considerate behaviour towards others?
-What role does empathy play in education? Could an un-empathic person be a successful teacher?
-What part does empathy play in the narrative arts of literature, theatre and film?
-Could someone who has poor empathic skills conduct a good interview?
-Does social networking increase or diminish empathy in those who use it?
-How does empathy make itself known in the work of architects, designers, advertisers, lawyers, theologians, journalists, town planners, TV presenters, politicians, prison officers, doctors, nurses, therapists, school teachers, priests, artists, entertainers of all kinds?
-What part, if any, does empathy play in the creation of digital media and perhaps, especially, in the creation of computer games?
-Is bullying a result of an empathy deficit? Or is it, rather, the case that well developed empathic ability informs bullying behaviour, in the same way that it allows the best torturers to decide how best to hurt and terrorise their victims?
-What part does empathy play in romantic love?
-How important for ethical living, is the ability to empathise?

In addition to the presentation of conference papers, the Steering Group welcomes the submission of shorts workshops and accounts of professional practice, as well as other contributions, including performances. It particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed panel proposals.

In order to support and encourage interdisciplinarity engagement, it is our intention to create the possibility of starting dialogues between the parallel events running during this conference. Delegates are welcome to attend up to two sessions in each of the concurrent conferences. We also propose to produce cross-over sessions between these groups â€" and we welcome proposals which deal with the relationship between Performance, Fandom and Empathy.

What to Send:
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 11th July 2014. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 17th September 2014. Abstracts should be submitted simultaneously to both Organising Chairs; abstracts may be in Word or RTF formats with the following information and in this order:

a) author(s), b) affiliation as you would like it to appear in programme, c) email address, d) title of proposal, e) body of proposal, f) up to 10 keywords.
E-mails should be entitled: EMPATHY1 Abstract Submission.

Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using 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.

Organising Chairs:
Gavin Fairbairn and Susan Fairbairn: gavin@inter-disciplinary.net
Rob Fisher: empathy1@inter-disciplinary.net

The conference is part of the 'Making Sense Of:' series of research projects. The aim of the conference is to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore various discussions which are innovative and exciting. All proposals accepted for and presented at the conference must be in English and will be eligible for publication in an ISBN eBook. Selected proposals may be developed for publication in a themed hard copy volume(s). All publications from the conference will require editors, to be chosen from interested delegates from the conference.

Inter-Disciplinary.Net believes it is a mark of personal courtesy and professional respect to your colleagues that all delegates should attend for the full duration of the meeting. If you are unable to make this commitment, please do not submit an abstract for presentation.

9th Global Conference: The Erotic

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.

This inter- and trans- disciplinary project seeks to explore critical issues in relation to eroticism and the erotic through its history, its emergence in human development, both individual and phylogenetic, as well as its expression in national and cultural histories across the world, including issues of transgression and censorship. The project will also explore erotic imagination and its representation in art, art history, literature, film and music. These explorations inevitably touch on the relationship between sexualities, gender and bodies, along with questions concerning the perverse, fetishism and fantasy, pornography and obscenity.

Papers, presentations, workshops and pre-formed panels are also invited on any of the following themes:

- The Erotic and the Virtual
- Eros and the Exotic
- Fantasy of Eros
- Erotic in sports
- Erotic in Nature
- Erotic as Symbolism in art and creativity
- Erotic and the virtual: chats, webs, facebook, erotic pictures of the profiles. How do people present themselves in social networking?
- Can religion be erotic? Saint images, celibacy, witch hunts.
- The erotic in literature and film: erotic acts, images and figures as in Nabokov's Lolita or Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris. The beauty of erotic. Where is the line between the erotic and pornography?
- Contemporary erotic: a phenomenon of 50 Shades of Grey.
- New supernatural romances and teen erotic (The Twilight Saga, Hunger Games, etc)
- National and cultural histories of the erotic
- Ancient erotic of the old Greece and the old Rome: erotic images (pictures and sculptures), aesthetics of the ancient erotic, erotic in mythology (Zeus and Leda, Helen, Venera, etc).
- Erotic and folklore: folk stories, songs, customs.
- The erotic and phases of human development
- The psychology of the erotic: subconscious, dreams, theories
- The erotic and the perverse: fetishisms, toys, pictures, objects of desire
- The politics of the erotic inc. issues of censorship and transgression
- The eroticism of childhood: we normally associate children's erotic with paedophelia but is this so? Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a children's book but it's also a reflection of the author's desire for a young girl. Are there any other examples in literature, art and history?
- The most erotic figures in the history of humankind: Marilyn Monroe, Cleopatra, Messalina, Jackie Kennedy, Brad Pitt, Barack Obama. Is there any difference between sex and erotic appeal?
- Erotic pedagogy: is there a place for the erotic in the classroom? Erotic relationship between a professor and a student. Is it possible to teach erotic?

We welcome submissions from within specific disciplinary boundaries, but we are also particularly interested in inter-disciplinary contributions that balance the scope of insight that disciplines bring with the limitations that disciplinary boundaries create in failing to recognise cross-disciplinary connections, which neglect important historical and cultural perspectives on the development of the 'erotic' as a locus of attention. Consequently, we are particularly keen to encourage submissions that are not subsumed within disciplines, but cut across and between disciplinary vocabularies to provide new synergies, domains and inter-disciplinary possibilities. We warmly welcome proposals which go beyond traditional paper presentations and encompass also panels, performances and workshops.

In order to support and encourage inter-disciplinary engagement, it is our intention to create the possibility of starting dialogues between the parallel events running during this conference. Delegates are welcome to attend up to two sessions in each of the concurrent conferences. We also propose to produce cross-over sessions between these groups - and we welcome proposals which deal with the relationship between The Erotic, Revolt and Revolution, Making Sense of Suffering and Truth and Truthfulness.

What to Send:
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 27th June 2014. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 19th September 2014. Abstracts should be submitted to the Organising Chairs; abstracts may be in Word or RTF formats, following this order:

a) author(s), b) affiliation as you would like it to appear in programme, c) email address, d) title of proposal, e) body of proposal, f) up to 10 keywords.
E-mails should be entitled: Erotic 9 Abstract Submission

Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using 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.

Organising Chairs:
Natalia Kaloh Vid: nkv@inter-disciplinary.net
Rob Fisher: er9@inter-disciplinary.net

The conference is part of the Gender and Sexuality series of research projects, which in turn belong to the Critical Issues programmes of Inter,Disciplinary.Net. It aims to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore discussions which are innovative and challenging. All papers accepted for and presented at this conference are eligible for publication in an ISBN eBook. Selected papers may be invited to go forward for development into a themed ISBN hard copy volume.

Inter-Disciplinary.Net believes it is a mark of personal courtesy and professional respect to your colleagues that all delegates should attend for the full duration of the meeting. If you are unable to make this commitment, please do not submit an abstract for presentation.
