REGISTRATION NOW OPEN: ‘Mapping Identities in the Modern World, 1830-present’

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN for the University of York Centre for Modern Studies Postgraduate Symposium ‘Mapping Identities in the Modern World, 1830-present’, taking place on 2nd June.

This interdisciplinary one-day symposium aims to give postgraduate students across the arts and humanities the opportunity to develop interdisciplinary debates and ideas around the concept of identity, questioning the way in which identities are (re)formed, constructed and explored psychically and spatially in the modern world.

Our keynote speaker is poet, essayist and travel writer Marius Kociejowski. He has published four collections of poetry: Coast (Greville Press), Doctor Honoris Causa and Music’s Bride (Anvil Press). So Dance the Lords of Language – Poems 1975-2001 was published in Canada by Porcupine’s Quill in 2003. Most recently he has published God’s Zoo: Artists, Exiles, Londoners (Carcanet Press, 2014), relating a series of encounters with creative artists living in London who are exiled from their cultural and geographical roots.

Registration is free and open to all, with lunch and refreshments provided and a wine reception following the keynote. To register please email cmods-pgforum@york.ac.uk with any dietary and access requirements by 25th May 2015.
