Meeting Description:

(Re)Constructing Pain and Joy in Language, Literature and Culture, the 6th International Conference of the Hellenic Association for the Study 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.

(Re)Constructing Pain and Joy in Language, Literature, and Culture
Hellenic Association for the Study of English
6th International Conference
October 20-23, 2005
The National & Kapodistrian University of Athens
Central University Building
30 Panepistimiou Street,
Athens, Greece

The 6th H.A.S.E. 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.
