Authenticity
An Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference

University of Salford, 14-15 September 2006


Call for Papers

A two-day conference at the University of Salford for postgraduate
students of the arts, media and social sciences to consider current and
changing perspectives on authenticity. The intention is to stimulate
debate and generate fresh understandings through interdisciplinary
exchange. We welcome papers in fields such as politics, philosophy,
religions and theology, sociology, psychology, literature, history,
classics, visual and screen studies, and the performing arts.

Possible themes include, but are not restricted to

- Agencies and Bodies of authenticity
- Models and Creations of authenticity
- Practices and Enactments of authenticity
- Mediations and Subversions of authenticity
- Images and Representations of authenticity
- Concepts and Theories of authenticity

Abstracts of 250 words are invited for contributions of 20 minutes. We aim
to provide a supportive and friendly environment where postgraduates can
gain experience in presenting their work and meet fellow researchers. The
conference also welcomes participants who do not wish to present.
