Meeting Description

Identities under Construction / Identités en construction

Identities, collective and otherwise, have been a source of ardent debates all
through the last decades of the defunct century. This state of affairs must be
seen against the backdrop of a consistent critique of humanism and its
universalist vision of 'man'.

Authors are invited to submit, by 1 February 2008, a 2500-character abstract
including a title and (if necessary) a bibliography. The abstracts will be
reviewed by the Scientific Committee.

Schedule as of now: Please declare your intention of submitting an abstract,
which should reach the Conference secretariat no later than 1 February 2008.
Notifications of acceptance will be delivered to authors by 1 April 2008.

This call is issued by a group of researchers working at the University of Liège
(Belgium) in various disciplines linked to the humanities - semiotics, literary
theory, linguistics, communication studies, sociology, anthropology - and is
meant for every intellectual susceptible of feeling interpolated by the subject
as outlined above. Since the primary aim of the Identities under Construction
Conference is to encourage an interdisciplinary theoretical reflection on the
concepts of identity and identification, the scientific committee will privilege
contributions focusing on theoretical aspects of the question. Case studies will
be taken into consideration as long as they are used to illustrate or buttress a
theoretical statement.

The official languages of the Conference will be French and English. For
communication purposes, Powerpoint presentations should be given in the other
conference language than that used in the paper.
