SOC 2320 - Social Identities and Interaction in Everyday Life

(SBA-AS) (CU-SBY)     

4 credits. Letter grades only.

M. Pirkey.

How do we develop and manage our identities in an increasingly complex world? How are our identities formed through interactions with other people, the groups to which we belong, and the groups from which we may be excluded? How has social media changed the way that we that develop our l identities and present them to others? Why do some identities become stigmatized, and what are some ways that people who have stigmatized identities manage that stigma in interactions with others? We will address these, and related, questions about l identity and interaction using the insights of the theoretical, experimental, survey-based, and qualitative sociological literatures.
