>7-9 September 2006
>
>KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
>

>The beginning of a new century, and even more 
>so, that of a new millennium, inevitably 
>promotes the reassessment of certain values and 
>beliefs, as well as a revisiting of the past. 
>This is particularly the case when this pivotal 
>point coincides with political and economic 
>changes, such as the establishment of new 
>governing structures and parties. The expansion 
>of the EU and the re-emergence of regionalisms 
>have stimulated reflections on issues of 
>identity, citizenship, nationality and 
>globalization. This conference will focus on how 
>individual states (or national groups within 
>states) perceive themselves and/or are perceived 
>by others since the Second World War. Whilst 
>speakers may choose to address the construction 
>of identities through historical discourse, 
>state building, institutional development, music 
>or literary forms, the conference would 
>especially like to encourage a debate on the 
>role of visual media, such as cinema, 
>photography and the internet in the 
>creation/representation of identity.
>
>Speakers should address one of the following areas:
>
>*    Identity and Nation-building: constructing 
>national identity in newly created states (as in 
>Eastern Europe); identity development and 
>decentralised governance (as within the UK or 
>Spain); civil society and identity; national 
>histories and identity; art, museums, 
>architecture and physical representations of 
>identity; religion, language, literature, myth 
>and history in the preservation of identities; 
>issues of integration and ethnicity; regional 
>identities and the problems of nation-building; 
>Britishness before and after devolution; 
>'European', national and transnational 
>identities.
>
>*    History and Memory: the role of memory in 
>the creation of personal and national 
>identities; the relationship between individual 
>and collective identities; the relationship 
>between micro/macro histories; the 
>representation of historical events and their 
>significance in a given cultural production; the 
>experience of tradition; memory and forgetting: 
>the role of oblivion in the construction of 
>identity; whether national identity is now a 
>superseded notion?
>
>*    Symbol, Image and Translation: questions of 
>visual and iconic communication; national 
>identities and issues of transnational 
>mediation; audiovisual translation in 
>communication industries, including TV, film, 
>and the Internet; the role of translation in the 
>construction of Europe's cultural and economic 
>landscape via audiovisual/multimedia material.
>
>We invite proposals for 20-minute papers. 
>Interdisciplinary and/or comparative approaches 
>are particularly welcome
>Please send a 300-500 word abstract to one of the following addresses:
>
>Dr Laura Rorato: [log in to unmask]
>Dr Carol Tully: [log in to unmask]
