CULTURE, IDENTITY, REPRESENTATION

URL: http://cuttingedgeconference.wordpress.com/

We live in an age of growing globalisation and expanding engagement with new media such as on-demand entertainment and social networking. The question of culture, identity and representation therefore becomes ever more pertinent to academic enquiry in the 21stcentury. How is identity and culture represented through visual image, sound, literature or performance, and conversely, how do these representations reflect or perform identity and culture?

Papers will be presented on the following topics:

  • Representations in media
  • Cultural performance and identity
  • The mediated image
  • The politics and ethics of representation
  • Mapping, culture and identity
  • Historical representation and authenticity
  • Gender, performance and identity
  • Urban identity and culture
  • Music, memory and self
  • Race, culture and representation
  • Identity and representation in Sport
  • Animals, identity and representation
  • Science, Representation and Society
