CFP: PSYCHOLOGY AND THE ARTS (5/1/13; 6/26-30/13)
We are very pleased to invite you to participate in the 30th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PSYCHOLOGY AND THE ARTS at the UNIVERSITY OF PORTO, PORTUGAL, JUNE 26-30, 2013. The conference sponsors are the Faculdade de Belas Artes, Universidade do Porto, and the PsyArt Foundation.
Although the majority of the papers will be in English, depending upon submissions, we may also have sessions in French, German, and Portuguese. Papers should deal with any application of psychology—including psychoanalysis, object relations, feminist, Jungian, or Lacanian approaches, cognitive psychology, or neuroscience-- to the study of literature, film, painting, sculpture, music, or the other arts. Our conference is small (maximum 70 papers), very convivial, and draws scholars from around the world. We also welcome conferees who do not plan to present papers.
The registration fee of $295 includes all sessions, all coffee breaks, opening reception (evening of June 26), two tours (June 27 walking tour of Porto; June 30 bus tour to Guimarães--European Capital of Culture 2012), and Sunday, June 30 closing banquet at Praia da Luz. The registration fee is reduced to $150 for graduate students.
Located along the Douro River in northern Portugal, Porto (also known as Oporto) is the second largest city in Portugal, and one of the oldest European cities, dating to Roman times. The city center was registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. We will visit a famous local port wine cellar (the wine was named for the city).
You can register and pay online until MAY 1, 2013:
We look forward to seeing you in Porto in June!
All the best,
