This interdisciplinary conference will bring together academics and students from across UCL to explore the topic of narcissism.

The myth of Narcissus has intrigued and provoked philosophical discussion since antiquity.

Recently, narcissism has become a catchphrase in socio-political discourse, in relation to social media, 'selfies' and the so-called 'millennials'. It may be beneficial to locate this current interest in narcissism within a broader historical framework, and incorporate perspectives from various disciplines, in order to develop a more nuanced understanding of this multifaceted issue.
