TLL 3004 - IDENTITY IN EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS
Recent approaches to conceptualizing and studying identity in complex social environments will be reviewed through course readings and discussions. The historical background of this work will also be addressed. Particular attention will be paid to the identity development of students who are often marginalized in educational settings. Qualitative and interpretive methods for studying identity will also be covered. Students will be expected to actively participate in discussions and complete a term project (either a review of the literature or a small-scale study of identity formation).
