‘Identity, Power, and Protest’ is an interdisciplinary, postgraduate-led seminar series, taking place at the University of Leeds throughout 2013-14. It aims to bring together postgraduates and academics, across disciplines, to debate how identity is actively produced and maintained – and how these processes have shaped, and been shaped by, discourses of power and protest. Defining ‘identity’, ‘power’, and ‘protest’ broadly, the series aims to explore these themes within a wide range of geographical and temporal locales, while also raising questions about how these discourses impact upon our own research and methodological approaches. Accordingly, proposals are encouraged from disciplines ranging from history, literature, and cultural studies to political science and communication studies. Ultimately, the seminar series hopes to provide a supportive space for postgraduate researchers to present original research and receive constructive feedback from their peers.
