W(h)ither Identity - Positioning the Self and Transforming the Social, January 23-24, 2014

The International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture

Identity, both as a whole and in relation to categories of social difference including, but not limited to, race, class, ability, sex/gender, sexuality, indigeneity, citizenship, etc., has been an increasingly contested concept in academic criticism, aesthetic practice, and political activism over the past quarter century – longer, if we consider experimental creative texts or the poststructuralist challenge to the subject. In political contexts, identity is framed, at times, as potentially reductivist and, at others, as necessary for self-positioning within networks of oppressive power and privilege.

[UPDATE] Concepts of Identity

updated: 
Sunday, September 29, 2013 - 9:45pm
St. Bonaventure University

On November 15-16, the English Department at St. Bonaventure University will hold a graduate conference concerned with concepts of identity. The various understandings of identity held by critics, theorists, readers, and writers are embedded in the history of literature and guide its trajectory. Concepts of identity also impact the ways individuals think about selfhood and inform scholarship on critical thinking, composition, and rhetoric. This conference seeks to draw upon a wealth of perspectives from graduate students engaged in the humanities — especially English language and literature and Composition/Rhetoric.
