4th Global Conference: Monstrous Geographies

4th Global Conference: Monstrous Geographies

Sunday 22nd March - Tuesday 24th March 2015
Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
This inter- and multidisciplinary conference focuses on the relationship between the monstrous and the geographic. We welcome proposals by academics, teachers, independent researchers, students, artists, NGOs and anyone interested in manifestations of monstrosity in space. Possible topics may include topics as diverse as ancient burial sites, haunted houses, post-apocalyptic landscapes, and even recent topographical manifestations of the Gaza conflict or the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Even if they no longer bear the physical markers of violence, devastation and human suffering geographical locations are often imbued with memories of horror that are passed on from generation to generation through various textual, audial and visual media.

Apart from historical events of monstrosity the scope of our conference entails imagined monstrosities and future landscapes of annihilation and death. Philosophical discussions are just as much welcome as artistic performances and explorations of literary, filmic or musical case studies of evil and the monstrous. The following questions may trigger ideas for presentations: What is the relationship between evil and the monstrous? Is the monstrous always rooted in the element of evil? Can disasters caused by nature be regarded as evil? Can we talk about geographies of poverty, hunger and homelessness in relation to monstrosity? Can evil and/or monstrosity be immanent to place or are they performed by cultural discourse, rituals and practices of memory? How do the monstrous and the geographic intersect in architecture, the arts, popular culture, politics, and the sciences?

We welcome presentations, papers, reports, performances, work-in-progress, workshops and pre-formed panels from all academic disciplines. Presentations may include but are not limited to the following topics:

-Unknown worlds
-Dystopic landscapes
-Sites of heterotopia
-Malevolent regions
-Bodies as maps and maps as bodies
-Places of isolation, incarceration and madness

Barcelona, Spain

"Philosophy, drama, and psychoanalysis each examine exile and return in the grand scheme of the life cycle - exile from the womb, from symbiosis with mother, from motherland, but also from our own reason and passions," We invite theoretical and clinical contributions questioning migration, exile, cultural complexity, polyphony and what Said called contrapuntal awareness in relation to psychoanalysis. This is an interdisciplinary conference. Perspectives from different psychoanalytic schools are most welcome. We promote discussion among the presenters and participants, for the symposium series creates a space where representatives of different perspectives come together, engage with one another's contributions and participate in a community of thought.

We would like to thank the Spanish Psychoanalytical Society.

Please send an abstract of 200 to 300 words, attached in a word-document, to psychoanalysis.politics@gmail.com by November 1st 2014. We will respond by, and present a preliminary programme on November 15th 2014. For further details, please see: http://www.psa-pol.org/?p=331

16th Global Conference: Perspectives on Evil

16th Global Conference: Perspectives on Evil

Wednesday 18th March – Friday 20th March 2015
Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Presentations:
Does evil exist? Should 'evil' exist in the 21st Century? The newspapers use it when talking about children who have been abused or parents who murder their babies. Political language splits into tensions of good versus evil, the forces of light versus the forces of dark, particularly in relation to situations of war or terrorism. Films attract huge audiences at the cinema who are looking to be frightened or scared by supernatural demons, possessions, witches and the malignant power of evil and evil beings. And when confronted by people and events which we cannot fathom or understand, all of us seem to revert to the language of evil to point to 'something more' than it being just 'wrong' or 'bad'. But what is this 'something more'? Is it real? Just an illusion? A convenience? A cop out? Or does evil still have a role to play today?

Everyone – academics and artists, NGOs and performers, practitioners, clergy, journalists, therapists, nurses, doctors, social workers – has something to say about anything that might be considered "evil" through any one of a hundred-plus prisms. 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. We want YOU to join this discussion!

Two themes which emerged at the 2014 meeting were financial and political acts which can be considered evil, especially acts of genocide and monetary policy decisions that impact wide segments of the world population. We can both build on these discussions and reach out in new directions and follow new leads, exploring new tangents of EVIL in any way, shape, or form.

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. Presentations that build on these themes or branch out into new areas are equally welcome.

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
-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.
