 CALL FOR PAPERS:

Our world becomes more and more dangerous. Populists come to power, people all around the globe support xenophobic dictators, and the future of humankind goes in an unpredictable direction. Therefore, during our interdisciplinary conference we would like to discuss some crucial questions: What is the source of intolerance and discrimination in the contemporary world? Is violence a “natural” consequence of intolerance? How should we react to acts of intolerance, discrimination and terrorism?

We will describe the phenomena of intolerance, discrimination and violence in political, social, psychological, cultural and many other terms. We also want to devote considerable attention to how these phenomena are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

We invite researchers representing various academic disciplines: history, politics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, economics, law, literary studies, theatre studies, film studies, fine arts, memory studies, migration studies, consciousness studies, dream studies, gender studies, postcolonial studies, medical sciences, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, cognitive sciences etc.

Different forms of presentations are encouraged, including case studies, theoretical investigations, problem-oriented arguments, and comparative analyses.

We will be happy to hear from both experienced scholars and young academics at the start of their careers, as well as doctoral and graduate students. We also invite all persons interested in participating in the conference as listeners, without giving a presentation.

We hope that due to its interdisciplinary nature, the conference will bring many interesting observations on and discussions about intolerance, discrimination and violence in the past and in the present-day world.
