Melancholy Minds and Painful Bodies: Genealogy, Geography, Pathogeny
9-11 July 2013, University of Liverpool
Embodiments directors at the University of Liverpool invite you to Merseyside/England, for our 3rd international conference Melancholy Minds and Painful Bodies (9-11 July 2013).
Our 2013 Embodiments international conference explores the themes of melancholy and pain, reading through different types of narratives on emotional and physical pain in dialogue with cross-disciplinary studies of melancholia in Europe and throughout the wider world. The event concerns itself with the melancholy-pain gap across geographies, genealogies, and time, conceptual portrayals of pain and melancholy in the media, varieties of genres and approaches, as well as cross-genre and cross-cultural communications of these terms and concepts. Last year, our Arts-Science conference Paranoia and Painsaw magnificent presentations from around the world. Building on the success of that inaugural event in Embodiments Research Group, we are working through journal and book chapters to be published during 2013-14.
