Both body and emotions have been approached through a static and binary dichotomy between rational mind and the irrational emotional body. This multidisciplinary conference seeks papers from all relevant study areas on the current debate.
In line with our commitment to promoting inter- and multi-disciplinary dialogue and debate we therefore encourage papers not only from within the cultural studies arena, but also from social and political scientists, literary scholars, artists, writers and performers, and the fields of psychology, psychiatry, philosophy and media studies. We invite contributions from both established scholars and younger scholars seeking a forum for original and innovative work.
The symposium is co-organized by: Ege University Departments of English Language & Literature and American Culture & Literature; The American Studies Association of Turkey (ASAT); The British Council and the Cultural Office of the U.S. Embassy.
