3.11 Summary and Final Tasks


Lesson 3 Summary

In this lesson, we laid out the conceptual underpinnings of identity. We demonstrated that identity is relational, complex and multilayered, socially and discursively constructed, and is both internally and externally determined. We discussed the ways that identities can interact with social structures of power in ways that marginalize individuals and groups of people, as well as the ways that dominant identities become normalized. Finally, we looked more closely at the ways that identities are related to place, space, and scale through place identity, and the ways that spaces are constructed to be inclusive or exclusive along lines of identity.
