The objective of this international and cross-disciplinary conference is to investigate the overarching concepts of identity, culture and communication as well as the relationships among them. Some orienting questions: What ideologies and their associated subjectivities have been enabled (or transmutated) by globalization and the “communications revolution”? How is the subject represented on screen and in new media – and to what effect? Has space been cleared for a revival of social class in discussions of identity? As globalization plays out, what is the relation between Self and Other, between Us and Them? How do scholars move beyond 1990s concepts of identity and identity politics? What is the place of agency?.
