Conference Themes: “Identity” and “History, Story and Narrative”
July 4–5, 2017 | The Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront, Brighton, UK
The conference themes for ECERP2017 were “Identity” and “History, Story and Narrative”, and the organisers encouraged submissions that approached these themes from a variety of perspectives.
These dual themes are complementary in that they excited 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 asked 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 was also welcomed and we encouraged sessions across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

Human interaction is at the root of all knowledge creation, and hence the great importance of the conference in introducing, testing and spreading ideas through challenging, rigorous and thought provoking discussion and debate. But beyond that, a conference is also a great chance to meet people from around the world, and to extend and grow ones’s professional network, and above all, to make friends.
It may be impossible to tell the story of the conference, or rather the many hundreds of interlocking stories that go to make up the conference, but the documentary photography in this slideshow aims to give a taster of the more serious academic side of the event, as well as the lighter side…
