Conference: Identity, Identities and New Media, Conference of Postgraduate Studies, Euro-Balkan, Skopje, 19-20 May 2012‏



INSTITUTE FOR SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES RESEARCH

"EURO-BALKAN"

(SKOPJE, MACEDONIA)



OPEN CALL FOR



THE FIRST CONFERENCE OF POSTGRADUATE STUDIES IN SOCIAL

SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES



IDENTITY, IDENTITITES AND NEW MEDIA



TO BE HELD ON 19-20 MAY 2012 IN SKOPJE





The time of the XXI century imposes the testimony of the expansion of universal interconnectedness of audio, visual and electronic texts and communications. The intersection of computers, social sciences and humanities as well as visual and performative arts discloses the relationship between technical innovation and diverse cultural expressions and forms. Thus, digital networks establish themselves as space destination for the message that is about the democratization of the idea, its distribution and the way that it is consumed.


Hence, the issues raised by this academic event are related to researching the relations between new media and identity today. In what way can we identify the cultural identity as a coherent entity within the various petitions and localization of gender, nationality, race, language, sexuality, religious discourse, political, ideological and historical context? On the other hand - the era of digital media when the importance of geographical distance is being lost, when the level of communication takes place with the speed of light, when democratization and universalization become the virtual geographic world - how in such conditions and circumstances can we talk about preservation of cultural identity and how could it be the driving force in a society and how cosmopolitan dimensions of new media enable cultural identity to be a citizen of the world?


The aim of the conference “Identity, Identities and the New Media” is to open an academic discussion of postgraduate, master's, doctoral students and all scholars dealing with critical thought in the country and the region. Registration and fee (30 eur) for the Conference is mandatory. The deadline for registration is May 1 st 2011.
