SOURCE – Moving from Awareness to Action: Socialization and Identity

Virtual (See event details)

This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

This workshop is presented by School of Education Professors Jeff Mangram and Melissa Luke and is open to undergraduate students interested in or already participating in research.

This 2-hour workshop is animated by two concepts:  Socialization and Identity. What role does socialization play in how we view ourselves and others? What does socialization teach us to view and what not to view? How does socialization teach us about ourselves and others? Can socialization be disrupted? And what are the connections between socialization and identity? Where does race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and nationality, for example, come into play in this process?

In this interactive Zoom session, you will think about and reflect on “yourselves” as you continue to reflect on socialization. That is, you are going to learn about multi-dimensional identity. What are these additional identities and how do you recognize them? How do they motivate (or not) your behavior? Which of these identities give you power? Which limit you?

Through discussions in breakout sessions as well as whole group discussion, videos, power points and reflection, you will:

  1. Define and explain the five facets of socialization
  2. Understand how the multi-dimensional identity-model works at different levels: ascribed/avowed self; dominant/subordinate; looking glass self; self-in relation-to-other; and intersectionality
  3. Reflect on your identity in relation to your peers, faculty and staff.
