Ars Identitatis is a recently founded independent non-profit association based in Paris (France) aiming at becoming one of the leading promoters of high quality research on identity in its different aspects.
We intend to publish a series of paperback volumes entitled Contemporary Identities (two volumes per year, one on a specific subject, the other miscellaneous). In order to make the selection process for the volumes as competitive as possible, we will organise a preliminary conference, which will take place in Paris at Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, from 13 to 16 April 2011.
The conference and publication languages are English and French.
Send us your abstract on topics that fit in the wide range of how Identity is constructed and interpreted in the contemporary world. We welcome enquiries on any type of identity: ethnic, religious or non-religious, spiritual, sexual, political, identity related to gender, family, friendship, street culture, art, fashion, age, mentality, economy, war, crime, love, comparisons between mentalities of the same communities in different historical or economical periods, heroes, saints, myths, etc.
We accept both case studies as well as more theoretical approaches.
After the conference, the panellists will participate in the selection process and choose the best papers in order to create coherent and attractive publications.
Every panel proposal should contain at least three abstracts. Individual abstracts should be of no more than 450 words in length. Ars Identitatis encourages also submissions by younger and competitive scholars and postgraduates.
Those who want to submit a panel proposal are kindly requested to send us a short Curriculum Vitae (one page) together with a presentation of the panel and the abstracts of the papers. Those who intend to send individual abstracts are kindly requested to submit a short bio note.
The deadline for sending abstracts is February 20, but we encourage early submissions, in order to allow the selection commission to have enough time for deliberation.
We will acknowledge receipt of your abstract. In case you don’t receive any reply from us after 3 days, please resend your abstract.
Please send your materials and adress your enquiries to Ms. Silvia Stoica (Director, Ars Identitatis), Ms. Léa Agboh (Consultant) and Mr. Ionut Untea (PhD candidate, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes) at ars.identitatis[at]yahoo.com .
