STUDYING ETHNIC IDENTITY
Methodological and Conceptual Approaches Across Disciplines
Edited by Carlos E. Santos and Adriana J. Umaña-Taylor
Humans are a fundamentally social species.
As individuals, we construct our identity
through our affiliation, interaction, and
identification with larger groups. And in
diverse and multiethnic societies like ours,
ethnic identity takes on an especially profound
importance. In recent years, social scientists
have been increasingly studying the meaning,
process, and content of ethnic identity, but these
efforts have been piecemeal, and the field as a
whole has suffered from a lack of conceptual
clarity and methodological rigor.
In this book, editors Carlos Santos and Adriana
Umaña-Taylor bring together a diverse group of social and applied scientists
from a wide range of fields including educational anthropology, developmental,
community and social psychology, and sociology. Together, they investigate
the process by which ethnic identity is formed and maintained throughout
the lifespan. Authors present qualitative and quantitative approaches to
conceptualizing and measuring ethnic identity, including narrative psychology
and ethnographic approaches, cognitive schemas and semi-structured
interviews, as well as analyses of social networks. Throughout, authors present
contextually-rich accounts of ethnic identity that keep the focus where it
belongs, on the lived experience of real people. 2015. 272 pages. Hardcover.
