Although an agreed definition remains elusive, identity is a central concept in psychology as well as the related disciplines of sociology, anthropology and philosophy.
The goals of this Symposium are to synthesise conceptual and empirical work and to present advances in the study and understanding of the psychological concept of identity.
Our objectives are to bridge divides and generate debate on the topic of identity in its broadest sense so that we are able to appreciate different perspectives and generate new interdisciplinary knowledge.
The keynote speakers at this event will be:
- Prof Constantine Sedikides, University of Southampton
- Dr Vivian Vignoles, University of Sussex
Institute for Child Health
Kennedy Lecture Theatre,
