Call for Papers for the Panel
Art, History and Identity

19 – 20 June 2015, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy

(As part of the Third Euroacademia International Conference  
‘Identities and Identifications: Politicized Uses of Collective  
Identities’ to be held in Lucca, Italy, 19 - 20 May 2015)

Deadline: 15 May 2015

Panel Description:

Identities are socially attributed imaginary significations. They are  
part of the dynamic projects of individual and social autonomy (C.  
Castoriadis). Nothing shapes, represents or reflects better the  
imaginary constructions of particular societies than arts. The  
artistic perception and practice are often identity making processes  
while the object of art can be a direct or indirect embodiment of  
experienced identities. At the outcome line of the process of artistic  
creation, the perception of the objects of art as oeuvre is an  
identification with cultural claims for specific aesthetic standards.

Art has a tremendous impact in indicating or shaping various  
dimensions of multilayered identities. Trough time art represented or  
influenced human visions of life and death, natural or supra-natural,  
meanings of life and daily practices, beliefs and their expression,  
history and change, places and differences. Art is simultaneously a  
process of building contextual cultural identifications and an  
instrument for cross-cultural dialogue. Arts supported the symbolic  
legitimating of various political orders and had an essential role in  
the creation of national identities. Arts shaped cultural aspirations  
and credos as an effective element of cultural innovation, change and  
openness to new. Through imaginary representations, art inserted  
divisions and differences among cultures and self-perceptions of  
people yet also opened the path of curiosity for the other and the  
emergence of trans-cultural dialogue. As artistic visions touched upon  
the most intimate identitarian representations of individuals and  
societies, they exercise a fundamental role in the developments and  
dynamics of identity making processes. Arts deeply touched on social  
and self-representation through sculpture and portraiture, on civic  
identities through defining social spaces in architecture or quotidian  
perceptions through design, on social or political allegiances through  
symbols, iconic objects and cultural diplomacy, on acting identities  
through theater, literature or performance arts, on the formation of  
transnational and global symbols. They exercised an essential impact  
on the formation of social memories or in addressing inclusion and  
exclusion nexuses for the marginalized or oppressed. Art is as well  
one of the important modes for asserting identities.

This panel addresses explicitly and invites the theoretical or applied  
studies that relate artistic manifestations with identity making  
processes. As the universe of reflection and research on the topics  
involved are virtually unlimited and impossible to anticipate in full  
diversity, we welcome contributions that add value or challenges to  
the discussion of the topic.

Some suggested topics for the panel are:
~ Art and identity: a bidirectional influence
~ Arts and the formation of social imaginary

performing arts
