Identity: We, Myself and Why? | Kevin Eiler & Janelle Justin
Who are you? Who are we together? Is your identity your own or do others co-construct it with you? Is your self stable or ever-changing? There are so many questions we can ask about our identities, but one thing we can know for sure is that identity matters. Our identities shape and are shaped by our experiences of the world, they influence the opportunities we have and the struggles we encounter, and they are situated in cultures, histories, belief systems, and power structures. We dedicate the Fall 2017 semester to the broad consideration of identity and identities. We invite you to find yourself, discover the other, and celebrate our identity as the community of Fontbonne University.
