Faculty of Humanities – University of Lisbon, Portugal /

We are glad to announce that the IDENTITY: REPRESENTATION & PRACTICES conference will take place on the 11th and 12th 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
