Critical Approaches to Cultural Identities in the Public Sphere:

From Ivory Tower to Social Arena

17 & 18 September 2020

       

 

 

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 September 17th & 18th 2020.
Conference languages will be English and French with mediation provided between the two languages.

Organisers: David Bousquet (University of Burgundy), Alex Frame (University of Burgundy), Mélodine Sommier (Erasmus University of Rotterdam)

Call for Papers: ENGLISH / FRENCH

Instructions for presentations 

Presentations should last 20 minutes and will be followed (immediately or at the end of the session) by questions.  

Conference languages will be English and French with mediation provided between the two languages via an automatic translation system trained on conference materials. Please prepare your presentation in whichever language is more convenient for you.  

In order to train and test the automatic translation system, we please need all PowerPoint presentations by 1st September. The translation system will notably be trained on the text of the annotations associated with your slides (your presentation notes). These can either be included in PowerPoint in the relevant frame (usually) at the bottom of your slides, or submitted as a separate text file. Please upload the Powerpoint and/or the text file via our ConfTool website.  

Your presentation will already be installed for you on the computer in the room where you will be presenting. 

 

Articles for online conference proceedings 

Anyone who would like their text to be included in the digital proceedings should upload it via the ConfTool website by 20th August. Papers should be formatted according to APA style.
