Post Identity: Publication examines cultural and social identity

Post Identity, the English Department's fully refereed journal of the humanities, is now available online.

The scholarly journal, produced and printed by faculty and students in the College of Liberal Arts and Education since 1997, examines the narratives underlying individual, social and cultural identity formations. It includes works from authors throughout the world from a variety of academic disciplines that investigate the relationship between identity formations and texts and argue how such formations can be challenged.

The spring 2004 issue focuses on “Identifying New Media” and is the first issue to go online. Post Identity has partnered with the University of Michigan's Scholarly Publishing Office to transform itself into an audio-, graphic-, and video-enhanced web-based journal. This issue recognizes “the opportunities and challenges that scholars face in mapping and theorizing the rapidly changing contours of the new media landscape.” In articles and web projects, contributors examine how new media forms are changing cultural and academic understandings of identity and authorship and how new media might provide models for new forms of scholarship.
