Proposed ISBN Book Title: Identity: A Question


Dear Academicians, faculty, and researchers,

We are glad to announce the call for chapters for the proposed edited book titled Identity: A Question. We welcome you to submit the ABSTRACT of your chapter as a preliminary step to become a contributor. Kindly follow the sub-themes and guidelines (refer to the attached file).

A suitable publisher of good reputation will be selected after discussing the scope and potential of the chapters received.


Concept Note:

With changing politico-social, cultural, and economic scenarios around the world, the notion of identity has become a significant question. Whether collective or individual, the struggle to trace and exist in one's own identity has to overcome several challenges raised by diverse influences from within and beyond. Such irregularities and crises lead to positive or negative categorisation. Identity: A Question opens space to explore and interpret the significance of the expression of identity amidst the growing tensions of attack from several corners on gender, caste, class, religion, political orientation, ideology, etc. The 'call for chapters' is not limited to any specific discipline. We welcome scholarly chapters that can contribute to developing the theme of the edited volume.
