Beyond Identity Politics? Intersecting disability, ethnicity and religious identities

Posted in Conferences by Pippa on September 14, 2009

Invitation to Conference 21st – 22nd October 2009 and Doctoral workshop: 23rd October 2009 at Stockholm University, in collaboration with Norwegian University of Science, Technology and Nordic Centre of Excellence: Reassessing the Nordic Welfare Model.

Identity politics has occupied academic debate since the latter part of the 20th century and the demand for recognition of minority group identities and a will to combat discrimination have been at the core of the philosophy. During this period however, we have witnessed a backlash in acceptance for identity politics, as well for multiculturalism. The conference hopes to bring together those with an interest in the historical and current discussion concerning the issues of identity politics and multiculturalism, and aims to explore what can exist “beyond” this philosophy in terms of various forms of universalism.
