of English (HASE), University of Athens, October 20-23, 2005. Drawing
upon the debate on representing vs. (re)constructing reality through
language and literature, the conference aims to explore views in
relation to the treatment of 'joy' and 'pain' as human experiences
combining physical, psychological, private, public, conceptual and
cultural dimensions. Furthermore, it fosters work that addresses the
relationship between pain/joy and creativity, examining the extent to
which pain/joy may be seen as sterile and constrictive or creative and
expansive. Proposals for 20-min papers (title, 300-word abstract,
100-word bionote) by 10 January 2005 to Angeliki Tzanne

Hellenic Association for the Study of English
6th International Conference
October 20-23, 2005

(Re)Constructing Pain and Joy
in
Language, Literature, and Culture
Conference site:
http://www.cc.uoa.gr/english/P&J/P&J1.htm

The 6th HASE conference aims at addressing the special theme of Pain
and Joy which have been explored as experiences combining physical,
psychological, private, public, conceptual and cultural dimensions. To
investigate how these multi-faceted and subjective domains of human
experience are construed and constrained, prospective participants are
invited to contribute studies in the fields of linguistics, literature
and cultural theory from autonomous or interdisciplinary
perspectives. Hence, links between different areas within and across
these fields are particularly encouraged. Drawing upon the debate on
representing vs. (re)constructing reality through language and
literature, the conference is meant to explore views in relation to
the treatment of 'joy' and 'pain'. Furthermore, it fosters work that
addresses the question of the extent to which pain/joy may be seen as
agents of either the inhibition or the stimulation of creativity.

Pain and joy may be examined in relation to the suggested topics below
(the list not being exhaustive):

-	cognition and emotion
-	cross-linguistic and cross-cultural perspectives
-	instinct vs. education in science and culture
-	socio-cultural stereotypes
-	power and authority
-	identity formation
-	collective and/or individual memory
-	embodiment
-	pain and ponos
-	religion, morality and ethics
-	textuality vs. physicality
-	marketability
