A two-day conference at the University of Salford for postgraduate students of the arts, media and social sciences to consider current and changing perspectives on authenticity. The intention is to stimulate debate and generate fresh understandings through interdisciplinary exchange. We welcome papers in fields such as politics, philosophy, religions and theology, sociology, psychology, literature, history, classics, visual and screen studies, and the performing arts.
Possible themes include, but are not restricted to
• Agencies and Bodies of authenticity
• Models and Creations of authenticity
• Practices and Enactments of authenticity
• Mediations and Subversions of authenticity
• Images and Representations of authenticity
• Concepts and Theories of authenticity
Abstracts of 250 words are invited for contributions of 20 minutes. We aim to provide a supportive and friendly environment where postgraduates can gain experience in presenting their work and meet fellow researchers. The conference also welcomes participants who do not wish to present.
