Critical Approaches to Cultural Identities in the Public Sphere: From Ivory Tower to Social Arena
This international conference organised by the “Text, Image, Language”
research unit of the University of Burgundy aims to address and bridge
the gap between critical approaches to cultural identities common in
academia and essentialising discourses increasingly widespread in the
public sphere. We would like to bring together researchers from
intercultural communication, cultural and postcolonial studies, media
studies and other disciplines, who are keen to challenge and deconstruct
reductionist discursive stances on culture and identity.
The conference will be held in Dijon, France, on May 14th & 15th 2020.
Conference languages will be English and French with mediation provided between the two languages.
