MULTIPLE IDENTITIES

identità multiple

Contemporary everyday practices show the importance of personal and mutual identity definition between the actors who share relationships. The increasing complexity of our society deserves to be analyzed beginning from a series of ethnosemiotic observations, which examine the specific procedures by which groups of people - different for some aspects - relate to each other and identify themselves.

The traditional sociological categories divide the social issues into generations, classes, genders, ethnic groups, etc. These categories deserve to be reviewed and implemented through the observation in vivo of the practices of interaction as well as the frequent overlaps and reformulations of criteria that come into play when we consider the reality of intersubjective relationships.

The field of research is broad: it includes the relationships between age classes, between genders and their variants, between groups of residents and migrants in their widely variable relations, between occupational or working groups, between mainstreamers and people belonging to various subcultures, etc.
