The 2nd International Humanities–Society–Identity Congress: Evolution/ Revolution Programme Committee is looking forward to welcoming you to Warsaw. The Congress embraces the study of all aspects pertaining to the notions of Humanities – Society – Identity. The focus is on the changes observed in those three areas with the main question being whether they should be perceived as evolutionary or revolutionary. The Congress Programme comprises two plenary lectures, a debate, general sessions and theme panel sessions.

 The idea for the Humanities - Society - Identity Congress was born out of the desire to create a platform for the exchange of views and perspectives on those three crucialnotions, which are studies by researchers representing various disciplines. The 1st Congress, which took place in December 2022, gathered such eminent scholars as Homi K. Bhabha (Harvard University), Jacqueline Bhabha (Harvard University), Marius Turda (Oxford Brookes University), Markéta Křížová (Charles University), or Susan Stryker (University of Arizona). The quality of talks and the liveliness of debates proved the need for the continuation of the venture and led to the decision of making the Congress an annual event. SUBMISSION TYPES:
We welcome proposals for individual research papers as well as panel sessions on specific themes.

A proposal for an individual research paper to be presented during a general session should be a 300-word abstract (exclusive of references). An abstract should clearly state research questions, the approach, method, data and results. Abstracts should also list three to five keywords. Individual research papers should be held in English.

• a brief (up to 300 words) statement summarizing the rationale
for the panel

• 300-word abstracts of each panel participant.
All the above information should be submitted in one file by the panel chair. Only the panel chair will be contacted with regard to the panel acceptance and other organizational details. Panels may be held in languages other than English. The deadline for both types of proposals is 31 August 2023. However, we would very much welcome earlier information about the planned session. Place: Faculty of Modern Languages, University of Warsaw, Dobra Street 55 All proposals should be sent to: hsic2023@wn.uw.edu.pl For more information visit the website: www.hsic.wn.uw.edu.pl
