"Identity" & "History, Story & Narrative"

The conference themes for ACERP2017 are “Identity” and “History, Story & Narrative”, and the organisers encourage submissions that approach these themes from a variety of perspectives.

These dual themes are complementary in that they hope to excite research on a variety of subjects related to personal and group identity, as well as the histories, stories and narratives that help situate us within communities and societies, and in the wider world in which we exist.

Crises of individual identity include losses and questioning of faith, of concepts of “truth” and “right”, and of ethical and religious societal responses to changing norms in different countries. These questions of identity go right to the heart of what it is to be human.

This conference also asks us to consider the connected notions of history, story and narrative within the context of ethics, religion and philosophy; however, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

The Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion & Philosophy 2017 (ACERP2017) will be held alongside The Asian Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences 2017 (ACP2017). Registration for either conference will allow delegates to attend sessions in the other.

In conjunction with our Global Partners, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2017.
