For some travelling may be an end in itself, a meaningful experience since the road secures them with direction and purpose. For others, however, it may just result in aimless wandering that can become a source of suffering and disappointment.
Travelling promises the lure of freedom and escape beyond the borders of familiarity, brings the thrill of the unknown, but it can also offer a gift of self-knowledge. People have been on the road for centuries and their experiences have been reflected in diverse texts of culture from Homer, through Swift and Cervantes, to fantasy novels and road movies.
It seems, however, that journey acquires a special meaning today when our capacity of swift mobility entails the construction of new identities, which Zygmunt Bauman labelled as: They all share one common feature: Stefan Themerson in his Adventures of Peddy Bottom, illustrated beautifully by his wife Franciszka, also had his protagonist set off on a journey.
Peddy Bottom, who resembles a human being, but also a fish and a dog, searches for his own identity and this search takes him on a journey. On the way Peddy has numerous adventures and meets many extraordinary characters who engage him in conversations that touch upon philosophy, language and logic.
The book addresses both children and adults and invites its readers to travel along with Peddy Bottom to reject underlying presumptions and uncover the truth by the Socratic method of asking questions.
The papers may address the following as well as related topics: Since it is our goal to run the conference in the spirit of the Themersonian Common Room, which was so interdisciplinary and versatile that it escaped facile categorization, we cordially invite not only specialists in philology, literature studies, cultural studies, linguistics and translation studies but also representatives of other academic disciplines such as sociology, pedagogy, psychology, philosophy, history, ethnography, arts studies, etc.

This seems to be a timely occasion, as there is strong evidence that a new paradigm is beginning to visibly alter the principles regulating cultural sensibilities.
However, the social and economic environment in the s is or at least seems to be perceived as different: As a result, life and work conditions have been substantially altered.
Likewise, the geopolitical order has also changed: Other factors should be added to the mix, and these include the digitalisation of culture and the very human experience, the impact of tourism as an economic force, the growing perception of immigration as a social problem and the widespread fear resulting from globalised terror.
This changing environment, as Vermeulen and Akker partly suggest, seems to be resulting in a new sensibility, which might even become a new cultural paradigm. Thus, as opposed to postmodern a-historicism, fragmentation and de-centralisation, this new context seems to have fostered a return to historical memory and conscience see e.
