Interdisciplinary.net - 4th Global Conference
Making Sense of: Pain
Thursday 9th May - Saturday 11th May 2013
Prague, Czech Republic
What tools can we bring when grappling with and trying to make sense of, pain? This inter- and transdisciplinary conference provides a forum for inquiry into the vicissitudes of pain: its nature and significance biologically, anthropologically, historically, culturally and socially. More specifically, as a means of probing the boundaries, this conference aims to create a dialogue between disparate as well as overlapping fields of study: the boundaries of disciplines as well as the boundaries of sensation - our suffering, our pleasure, ourselves.
We particularly welcome the perspectives of medical anthropologists, medical humanists, medical historians, professionals, physicians, care-givers, patients, and those exploring the boundaries between creative arts and healing, narrative and medicine. Papers are being accepted up to 4 January 2013. For more information, visit: http://www.inter-disciplinary.net/probing-the-boundaries/making-sense-of/pain/call-for-papers/
