Conference Theme: Dealing with diverse identities

Call for Stream and Workshop Proposals 

Deadline for the submission of streams: November 1, 2014


The EDI Conference welcomes a wide range of streams and workshops about the complex relationship between equality, diversity and inclusion from different theoretical, empirical and methodological angles as well as across various trans/inter/national and disciplinary contexts. In 2015, we wish to draw particular attention to the problem of identity, to the various conceptions and misconceptions, to the enactment of identity by individuals, groups and out-groups; to the modes of construction, the borders, the stability as well as the evolutions, the homogeneity as well as the heterogeneities which are thus attributed to them. Those underlie the relations they maintain: power/privilege/hierarchy/equality; inclusion/ exclusion; solidarity/individualism; competition /cooperation…. And also the way in which the humans: workers, consumers, citizens, migrants… are treated, looked after, managed, controlled, trained. On which conceptions are institutions, laws, norms, standards, methods built? With which effects? What transformations are possible?


However, the focus on identity presented here is not intended to pose limits for stream themes and approaches. You are invited to submit stream and workshop proposals under the theme of the conference as well as outside this theme, within the broad remit of the EDI conference.


Streams are designed in a traditional academic format, whereas workshops are more open to unconventional and informal procedures. There will be a doctoral colloquium under the supervision of Dr Joana Vassilopoulou and Dr Kate Sang (contact: parallel to the conference. Information on deadlines and mode of submission will be available on the EDI website.
