The IRN was established in April 2014 by Chris Agius and Dean Keep. Based in Melbourne, it brings together over 100 researchers and postgraduate students from Australia and abroad working on themes of identity across a variety of disciplines. Through the IRN we aim to foster interdisciplinary research and identify new avenues of work and publication. The IRN is organised around three key nodes  (Space, Place and Temporality; Self, Culture and Subjectivity; and Media, Art and Technology) which overlap and interact.

We hold informal monthly seminars on the last Friday of the month. Seminars are on range of themes related to identity. The programme for 2014 has included seminars that explore how we use identity in our research; theoretical perspectives; empirical case studies; practice-led work and identifying new avenues of research collaboration.

We welcome researchers and practitioners interested in themes relating to identity and showcasing innovative work.
