Setting our stories: Place, space and narrative in identity performance

A seminar organised as part of the Identities in Transformation Research Theme Seminar Series.

This session will explore two themes within the broader framework Identities in Transformation: the development and performance of identity, and the problematics of identity formation and belonging within a globalised world. The first half of the seminar is informed by a literary
perspective, examining how identity is negotiated and performed through fictional narratives. The second half will broaden out into applying social, educational, and legal perspectives of challenges to identity formation and performance brought up by the process of globalisation. Lightning talks will be accompanied by interactive elements, the goal being to invite the audience to consider their own identity and its malleability.

The seminar is led by six postgraduate students: Alicia Byrne Keane
(School of Histories and Humanities), Siobhan Callaghan
(School of Histories and Humanities), Angeliki Lima (School of Education),
Sadhbh McGrath
(School of Law), Martina Mendola (School of Languages, Literatures & Cultural
Studies), and Carlos Rafael Oliveras (School of Language, Speech & Communication Studies) who will discuss these concepts in relation to their research.

We invite you to join us for this interdisciplinary event exploring identity in contexts ranging from the personal to the national, and beyond.

All members of the public are welcome.
