Multiple Identities

(p.130) 7 Multiple Identities
Identity Theory

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the consideration of multiple identities that people have and that exist in situated interaction. It considers the case of multiple identities within a person, and then examines multiple identities within a situation. It also shows that the perceptual emphasis in identity theory conceptualizes identities as hierarchically arranged in a control system of identities instead of a prominence hierarchy.

Keywords:   multiple identities, situated interaction, perceptual emphasis, identity theory, control system of identities, prominence hierarchy
