This interdisciplinary course explores social identities from both anthropological and sociological literatures. Core concepts explored are self and society, identity, socialization, culture, ethnicity, social conformity, presentation of self in everyday life and stigma and emotion management: all are illustrated by reference to contemporary issues of identity politics in Aotearoa/New Zealand and within an examination of how medical interventions (enhancement technologies) alter the notion of authentic self.
