ABOUT CONFERENCE: 

 

 

              By living in constant stress, rivalry, hurry and uncertainty of tomorrow, we become victims of various addictions more and more often. During our international conference we would like to observe this phenomenon in a possibly broadest perspective. We will be interested in all kinds of addictions: both the most popular, well-known ones, and the rarest, eccentric and surprising ones. We would like to talk about alcoholism, drug addiction, workaholism, sexoholism, but also, for instance, addictions to sushi, fortune telling, or taking part in conferences. We will describe addictions in their present and historical aspects, in cultural, social and individual dimensions, in real life and in artistic representations. That is why we invite researchers and practitioners representing various disciplines: psychiatry, psychology, psychoanalysis, sociology, anthropology, politics, philosophy, history, literary studies, theatre studies, film studies, memory studies, migration studies, consciousness studies, dream studies, gender studies, postcolonial studies, medical sciences, cognitive sciences, law, to name w few.

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

            We will be happy to hear from both experienced scholars and young academics, doctoral and graduate students. Therapists, counselors and practitioners in the field of addiction treatment are also very welcome. We also invite all persons interested in participating in the conference as listeners, without giving a presentation.
