Abstract: In this talk I will show how defining rules in a hypersequent setting can give a uniform proof-theoretic semantics of identity and modality, allowing – equally naturally – for (1) modal operators for which identity statements are necessary (if true), and (2) modal operators for which identity statements can be contingently true.
