Kommentar

Collective identity is a concept frequently invoked in sociological and social science research, in particular when dealing with nation related issues such as identification with a nation or social integration and cohesion. Upon closer examination, however, collective identity still remains a theoretically rather opaque concept and operationalization in empirical studies is a matter of debate. This seminar aims at developing an understanding of the basic building blocks of collective identity at the individual level and of how they relate to cultural (macro) processes. The seminar is divided into two parts: First, students will get acquainted with different theories and concepts of collective identity and learn about the cognitive and affective processes underlying identity formation. We will discuss the conditions under which collective identities develop and the ways in which they impact social action. Second, these aspects will be related to selected cultural domains, in particular the formation of national identity and, using various case studies, the construction of a European identity.
