This one-day event seeks to explore how the self is represented, reimagined and reconfigured in a range of practices across the arts, humanities and social sciences. We seek to engage academics, writers and artists as researchers of their own and/or others’ practices in ideas related to narratives of the self. We also welcome contributions that explore the articulation of self in relation to teaching and research in Higher Education.

The time is coming when it will hardly be possible to write a book of philosophy as it has been done for so long: 'Ah! the old style...'. The search for new means of philosophical expression was begun by Nietzsche and must be pursued today in relation to the renewal of certain other arts, such as the theatre or the cinema.

-Gilles Deleuze, Difference and Repetition
