The two volumes of this encyclopedia seek to explore myriad ways in which we define ourselves in our daily lives. Comprising 300 entries, the Encyclopedia of Identity offers readers an opportunity to understand identity as a socially constructed phenomenon - a dynamic process both public and private, shaped by past experiences and present circumstances, and evolving over time.
Offering a broad, comprehensive overview of the definitions, politics, manifestations, concepts, and ideas related to identity, the entries include short biographies of major thinkers and leaders, as well as discussions of events, personalities, and concepts. The Encyclopedia of Identity is designed for readers to grasp the nature and breadth of identity as a psychological, social, anthropological, and popular idea.
Key Themes Art Class Developing Identities Gender, Sex, and Sexuality Identities in Conflict Language and Discourse Living Ethically Media and Popular Culture Nationality Protecting Identity Race, Culture, and Ethnicity Relating Across Cultures Religion Representations of Identity Theories of Identity
