Diversity and Difference – Studies in Subjectivation
We would like to invite you to our international conference ‘Diversity and Difference – Studies in Subjectivation’.
Diversity characterizes societies of the present. Some fight for "Leave no one behind" and "Black lives matter" - others, however, experience diversity as a loss of control or counter difference with defense and degradation. The conference uses subjectivation research’s theoretical vocabulary and empirical approaches to investigate diversity and difference. How can perspectives on subjects and subjectivation, biographies and discourses, articulations and re-articulations, positionings and re-positionings become fruitful for critical social analysis in the context of diversity and difference?
The conference will be framed by Key-Notes from Ann Phoenix (UK), Christine M. Jacobsen (NO), Rebecca W. B. Lund (NO) and Denise Bergold-Caldwell (AU/US).
