Independent academics, Doctors, Others

Institute of European Culture and the Department of Social Sciences of the Polish University Abroad in London (PUNO) with the Institute of Painting and Artistic Education of the Pedagogical University in Krakow (UP) invite you to submit your proposals.

The aim of the conference is to explore various perspectives on identity issues (including "mobile and multicultural identities") in the context of an interdisciplinary approach. Inclusive of the national minorities' optics, the dimension of empirical and theoretical work in the ways of expressing identity in the everyday life of emigrants will be additionally emphasized.
In order to meet the challenges of topographizing the term of "identity", conference organizers divided it into 5 contractual thematic panels, creating an opportunity to contribute to the event for the representatives of various disciplines.

Conference Panels:

1. The Identity Expressed by the Creative Act
2. Personal Identity
3. Non-Heteronormative Identity
4. Collective Identity
5. Multicultural Identity

Speech proposals will be accepted through submitted forms. Please note: You can apply only to one panel.
