CALL FOR PAPERS | Identity: representation & practices


GEsIPI International Conference


11 - 12 September 2014

Faculty of Humanities - University of Lisbon, Portugal /


We are glad to announce that the IDENTITY: REPRESENTATION & PRACTICES conference will take place on the 11 th and 12 th of September 2014. The conference will be hosted by the University of Lisbon, Portugal.

Identity has been a popular topic in academia and has been reviewed from many different theoretical and methodological angles. The main purpose of this conference will be to assess identities ( i.e.: national; gender; cultural; professional; religious; socio economic etc.) within and across different disciplines (social science, political science, psychology, linguistics, literature, medicine, jurisprudence, and more) and to bring together researchers from different fields of study to establish a dialogue and further advance the state of the art.

We welcome proposals for paper presentations addressing identity across a wide spectrum of expertise/subjects. The topics for paper proposals can include but are by no means limited to the following:

I.            Technologies, literacies and identities

II.            Power, media and governability

III.            Migration, globalization and inequalities

IV.            Communities of practices, knowledge and intercomprehension

V.            Exposure, ostentation and otherness

VI.            Social networks, mobilization and ideologies

VII.            Identity politics, regulation, enforcement and control

VIII.            Arts, performances and consumerism

IX.            Social relations, power and equalities

X.            Ethics, public space and civil rights

XI.            Identities of self, group and interpersonal relationships
