- Who are you?
- Where are you from?
- How are you perceived?
- And, how do you see yourself?
- Who do you want to belong to?
NEWConnective is organizing on Wednesday 17 February an event about the complexity of identity. Throughout this inspirational and educative evening, you can expect several academic and personal perspectives about the layering of identity.
“The more you know yourself, the more patience you have in what you see in others.” – Erik Erikson, 1964
The identity process is a complex and changeable fact in which context plays a major role. Since increasing globalization, individualization, and the settlement of migrant groups in Western European countries, there is more attention to the influence of factors such as culture, religion, gender, and ethnicity on identity.
The world has become increasingly complex and changeable and with it the image of someone’s identity.
Since identity is no longer seen as a given, but rather as a concept that says something about the complex construction of an individual’s position in a society, we want to pay attention to the different facets of that social construction. We find particularly interesting the psychological, emotional, and philosophical basis on which an individual’s self-image is formed, but also the role an individual has within a social group or several social groups.
We offer room for nuances. We will listen to the approaches of different speakers on this theme. And we will listen to your stories, personal experiences of students about their identity in our complex society. We hope to offer you tools to form your own positive identity.
Key questions are: Who are you and where are you from? How are you perceived and how do you see yourself? Who do you want to belong to?
