Intercultural Communication Notes fromAugust 23 and 25 th • This class is going to be an intercultural communication class with an emphasis on identity. • It does not matter what the domain is we all have bias. These bias can be good or bad. • We have group basis because of identity. • Identity is necessary because all domains have an hierarchy. • Hierarchy=power. • Identity is : Who am I? ~According to “social identity theory” individuals have two types of identity. ~Personal Identity: these are the things that make individuals unique and special. (i.e. personality, physical characteristics, personal experiences.) For example: The song “Fight Song” is about personal identity because the song is lyrics are focused on one individual. ~Social Identity: are group memberships that tie individuals together (ie nationality, gender, race/ethnicity). We belong to a lot of different groups at one time and throughout our life. For Example: The song “Single Ladies” is a song that is about social identity or group. • Individuals belong to a multitude of groups. ~In-Groups: groups in which individuals claim membership. ~Out-Groups: groups in which individuals do not claim memberships • Identity is dynamic and can change throughout the day. Foe Example:Aperson at school has an identity as a student, but one this student drives home to their family they take on the role as child/family member. • Language is what changes our roles on a day to day basis. • Identity can be contextual. For Example:Athletes in the Olympics are known by their nations. Once the Olympics are over they go back to normal life and are known by their careers.
