7th “Trauma and Nightmare” International Interdisciplinary Conference

Where: online

When: March 14th – March 15th, 2024

Description: “Trauma” and “nightmare” have become the most popular metaphors of evil in our times. The old philosophical discussion about “the nature(or mystery) of Evil” has been replaced by modern (and postmodern) studies on trauma. Nightmare is more and more  frequent phenomenon, and it is being studies by dream and sleep researchers. However, nightmare means not only bad dream – today this term describes also a varietry of unpleasant experiences, memories, emotions, so it deserves special attention as an important factor which characterizes the human condition.

Keeping this in mind, during our conference we would like to ask how discourse on trauma and nightmare helps us to understand our contemporary world. In order to answer this general question, we will have to concentrate on many particular issues. Thus, we are interested in all aspects of traumatic experiences, in their individual and collective dimensions, in the past and in the present-day world. We would like to describe the phenomena of nightmare and trauma in their multifarious manifestations: psychological, social, historical, cultural, philosophical, religious, economic, political, and many others. We also want to devote considerable attention to how these phenomena appear in artistic practices: literature, film, theatre or visial arts. That is why we invite researchers representing various academic disciplines.

Different forms of presentations are encouraged, including case studies, theoretical inquiries, problem-oriented arguments or comparative analyses will be represented at the conference.
