Identity, Society and Transformative Social Categories Summary

Identity, Society and Transformative Social Categories: Dynamics of Construction, Configuration and Contestation by Debal Kumar SinghaRoy

Identity is central to the understanding of human social, cultural, and political expressions. In recent times, it has become a major topic for intellectual discourse to represent the processes of dynamic social change and transformation such as the expansion of information and communication technology (ICT); social and mass media; education; and economic globalization. Organized into seven chapters, Identity, Society, and Transformative Social Categories: Dynamics of Construction, Configuration, and Contestation provides an in-depth presentation of the conceptual formulations of the essence, construction, and transformation of identities. A highlight of the book is its coverage of the process of rejuvenation of identities of the indigenous people of Australia in the context of the national policy of reconciliation and development. It comprehensively answers the myriad questions that are commonly raised on identity and its various facets.
