General Conference Topic: (Re)Search for Identity

Thanks to the latest scientific and technological developments, we human beings are now juggling multiple types of realities: virtual reality, collaborative virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, hyperreality, social reality, personal reality, alternative realities, and so forth. The array, complexity, and variances among these several realities are remarkable. In the face of these various realities, we struggle to preserve (and/or often interpolate) our identities from one reality to the other. Fields such as literature, history and cultural studies, inspired by Michel Foucault among others, have examined and deliberated about the dimensional and diachronic aspects of identities, as well as the construction of cultural, social, and historical identities. Meanwhile, in the fields related to technology and science, researchers have explored and analyzed synchronic and compartmentalized characteristics of identities in virtual, augmented, and mixed realities.
