This conference shall bring together exciting new perspectives on processes of group formation, group legal and social articulation, and interaction between groups and authorities, broadly conceived.
This will be an interdisciplinary conference welcoming historians, art historians, archaeologists, literary scholars and sociologists. It will discuss the complex relationships that existed between two or more of: formulations of ‘race’ (biological, ethnic, linguistic or proto-national), divisive laws and identity groups. We welcome perspectives incorporating, for example: colonisation, urbanisation, spiritual space, integration/assimilation, rebellion, minority experience, self-expression, material culture, contemporary group characterisations.
Proposals: We invite proposals for 20 minute student papers and 30 minute academic papers (abstracts of 250 words). Proposals should be emailed to Dr Rhiannon Sandy firstname.lastname@example.org (English language) or Dr Anna Maleszka email@example.com (Polish or German) by 5pm on 01 July 2023.
Pre-register to attend: email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Languages: English and German (with English translation).
