Proposed Panel: Identity Politics After (Post)Modernity

We wish to propose a panel that encourages thinking about minority
identity and the process of modernism and modernization. In what ways can
we conceive of the role of minority identity in a discourse dominated by a
single voice that seeks to drown out all others? Papers dealing with
modernity and colonialism are of particular interest, especially those
that look at to what extent postmodernity has resolved this “darker side”
of modernity.

We are looking for answers to these and other related questions,
approached from a wide range of disciplines, including political and
social theory, science and technology, art, drama and performance studies,
literary criticism and theory, and others. Please send a 300-500 word
abstract, along with a brief CV to tgirshi1_at_binghamton.edu, no later than
Friday, May 5, 2006, although earlier submissions are appreciated.
