Cutting Edge Postgraduate Conference

CULTURE, IDENTITY, REPRESENTATION

 SATURDAY 22nd MARCH 2014

Creative Edge, Edge Hill University
CALL FOR PAPERS

We live in an age of growing globalisation and expanding engagement with new media such as on-demand entertainment and social networking. The question of culture, identity and representation therefore becomes ever more pertinent to academic enquiry in the 21st century. How is identity and culture represented through visual image, sound, literature or performance, and conversely, how do these representations reflect or perform identity and culture?

We invite submissions of abstracts for 15-minute papers from postgraduate researchers, where their research encompasses one or more aspects of culture, identity or representation.

Proposals are welcome on, but by no means limited to, the following topics:

  • Representations in media
  • Cultural performance and identity
  • The mediated image
  • The politics and ethics of representation
  • Mapping, culture and identity
  • Historical representation and authenticity
  • Gender, performance and identity
  • Urban identity and culture
  • Music, memory and self
  • Race, culture and representation
  • Identity and representation in Sport
  • Animals, identity and representation
  • Science, Representation and Society

Abstracts for papers should be no more than 200 words in length, and should be emailed to cuttingedgeconference@gmail.com by Saturday 1st February 2014.

On a separate page, please list your name, email address, institutional affiliation and a short 50 word biography.

Please contact us at cuttingedgeconference@gmail.com if you have any queries.
