CfP: 6th Euroacademia International Conference: ‘Identities and Identifications'. Florence, 22–23 June 2017

Call for Papers: 6th Euroacademia International Conference ‘Identities and Identifications: Politicized Uses of Collective Identities’. Florence, 22–23 June 2017.

The Sixth Euroacademia International Conference ‘Identities and Identifications: Politicized Uses of Collective Identities’ aims to scrutinize the state of the art in collective identities research, to bring once more into debate the processes of identity making, identity building in both constructivist or de-constructivist dimensions. The conference will include a wide variety of contributions on identity making practices while fostering a critical assessment of intended or unintended consequences that lead to the politicization of identities. It is the aim of the Euroacademia conference to open the floor to dynamic multi-dimensional and inter-disciplinary understandings of identities in their historic formation or in the way they shape the present and future of organizations or communities. The conference however seeks also to integrate and address the misunderstandings or misconceptions implicit to identity formation practices. A focal place will be given to methodological refinement and innovation in the research of identities in a broad spectrum of disciplines.
The call for papers for the following panels can be accessed here:
1 – Art and Identity
2 – Identity in the Visual
3 – Performing Identity: The Relationship between Identity and Performance in Literature, Theatre and the Performing Arts
4 – Identities and the Cities: Urban Transformations, Transition and Change in Urban Image Construction
If interested in participating, please read the complete event details on the conference website and apply on-line. Alternatively you can send a maximum 300 words abstract together with the details of your affiliation until 10th May 2017 by e-mail at application@euroacademia.eu
