Identities, whether they are self-constructed or imposed, individual or collective, are bound by certain dimensions or criteria. Boundaries, however, can be fluid, regardless of the rigidity with which they have been established or the rigidity with which they are maintained. And all boundaries, however strict, should be interrogated.
This conference seeks to highlight the degree to which the fluidity of identity can be manipulated and explores how boundaries may be reconsidered and expanded. We are especially interested in how literature can challenge the uniformity and conformity of identity, how constructed identities can distort the reality and perception of peoples, voices, and histories, and how identities can be situationally dependent.
The goal of this conference is to provide a cross-disciplinary space for postgraduate research students and early career researchers to share their research.
