Narrating Identity Formation, On and Off The Map; ACLA 2013 seminar, Toronto, April 5-7, 2013; Deadline: November 1st, 2012

updated: 
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 - 6:54pm
Coordinators: Georgia Christinidis, Vera Alexander

Like any advanced cartographic process, mapping identity formation requires an imaginary 'cartographic grid.' Until recently, narratives of identity formation, including, in particular, the genres of autobiography and the Bildungsroman, seemed to foreground the temporal dimension over the spatial. However, in "Of Other Spaces", Michel Foucault argues that "We are at a moment … when our experience of the world is less that of a long life developing through time than that of a network that connects points and intersects with its own skein." This seminar investigates how narrative identity constructions are affected by this change.
