Perspectives on Identity

An Interdisciplinary Conference for Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers

24 - 27 November, 2015
The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

Through the confluence of emerging scholars, this latest edition of the ‘Perspectives’ series looks to promote interdisciplinary dialogues that examine understandings of ‘identity’. We encourage contributions from all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences, such as anthropology, classics, history, philosophy, and religion, through to cultural, literary, media, and political studies in exploring how identity sits at the core of our being, and how this influences and is influenced by the world around us.

 

 
Perspectives on Progress

An Interdisciplinary Conference for Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers

This conference seeks to promote innovative dialogues from a broad range of backgrounds in Humanities and Social Sciences, in order to assemble diverse perspectives on this pertinent theme: Progress as a ‘concept’ has driven and continues to drive mankind. However, the initial motivations for progress, as well as many of the results, are not always explored, sufficiently understood, or necessarily in our best interests.
