Call for Papers - Identity
**THIS CALL FOR PAPERS IS NOW CLOSED**
How do we begin to answer the question: “Who am I?” or, with the increasing popularity of social networks, “Who are You?” Historically rooted in the collective as well as the individual, traditional conceptualisations of identity have found themselves facing new challenges in a globalized world. Does technology isolate individuals as much as it brings them together? Is identity a construct or is it something more innate? Has identity become a commodity, something that can be created, stolen, or even sold? How is identity represented in art, literature, media, education, popular culture?
In order to answer these questions and more, Aigne is currently seeking submissions on the topic of Identity. Papers may include, but are not restricted to discussions on:
- politics of identity
- identity crisis
- theoretical conceptualisations of identity – feminist, postcolonial, (post)modern etc.
- tabula rasa or “the blank slate” debate
- technology, media and social networks
- religion and faith in identity formation
- identity as performance
- Self and Other
- diasporic reflections on identity
- identification and separation
Articles presented to Aigne must be original works between 3,000 and 5,000 words in length. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday March 1st, 2011. Submissions are accepted in both the English and Irish language – see our Submissions page for more information. Please remember to include a 250 word abstract – with English translation if necessary.
Please mark your email “Identity” and send to: email@example.com
