The Idea

The idea for the Humanities – Society – Identity Congress was born out of the desire to create a platform for the exchange of views and perspectives on those three crucial notions, which are studied by researchers representing various disciplines.

The 1st Congress, which took place in December 2022, gathered such eminent scholars as Homi K. Bhabha (Harvard University), Jacqueline Bhabha (Harvard University), Marius Turda (Oxford Brookes University), Markéta Křížová (Charles University), or Susan Stryker (University of Arizona).

The 2nd Congress in December 2023 was opened with a talk by distinguished postcolonial studies scholar Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak (Columbia University) and closed with a special talk by actor and producer Ben Crystal.

The quality of talks and the liveliness of debates proved the need for the continuation of the venture and led to the decision of making the Congress an annual event.
