The Narratives of Culture and Identity Research Group invites you to participate in its conference Gendered Identities in Contemporary Literary and Visual Cultures on June 5-6, 2015 at ELTE, School of English and American Studies.

This English-language conference brings together MA and PhD students, scholars and researchers, all dedicated to the study of gender representation in various disciplines.
We are looking for contributions that innovatively engage with issues of gender representation and the perception of gender roles in a cross-cultural perspective. Multi- and interdisciplinary approaches that successfully combine text-based, theoretical and/or visual approaches are especially welcome.

Suggested research areas include:
- literature, comics and film studies
- visual culture studies
- theorising gender
- anthropology and history
- trauma, memory and war studies
- gender and politics
- masculinity studies
- queer studies
- cultural studies
- popular culture studies
but papers are not limited to these topics.

Participants will have 20 minutes to present their papers, followed by a 10-minute discussion.

Abstract of your paper (200 words) with your name and affiliation, as well as any queries, should be directed to narr.cul.id@gmail.com until 10 April 2015. Notification of acceptance: 20 April 2015.

Information about the conference will be made available on the Research Group's website:
