revealed "I"
Revealed "I" PDF Print
Identity, it has been said, is a theft of the self. Who we are in the world and how we are identified is, at best, a concession. Aspects of our identities are chosen, others compelled.  Ultimately, we are defined by things that are revealed and things that are concealed.  Hosted by researchers from On the Identity Trail, the Revealed “I” conference brings together a stellar collection of North American and European research talent from academic, public, private, and not-for-profit sectors.  Our two day discussion focuses on the impact of information and authentication technologies on our identity, and on our ability to be anonymous. Offering the perspectives of youth, marginalized persons, artists, advocates, academics, entrepreneurs, and governments, the conference will investigate privacy and performativity, the psychological and social construction of identity, and challenges posed by emerging surveillance technologies. 
This event will be preceded by a day long student conference, where students from around the world, selected through a peer-review process, will present their own research on themes relating to the On the Identity Trail project.

Please bookmark this space for further details on the Revealed I, the student conference and social events planned over the three-day period for attendees at both conferences.
