Erikson in buckingham

  1. 1. Youth, Identity and Digital Media David Buckingham
  2. 2. “ Identity is an ambiguous and slippery term.” <ul><li>Paradoxical in that it implies both similarity and difference. </li></ul><ul><li>Identity can be about self “find my true self” </li></ul><ul><li>Identity can be about affiliation with others- national Identity </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>“ Much of the debate around identity derives from the tensions between these two aspects. I may struggle to ‘be myself’ or to ‘find my true self’, and yet there are many would-be-experts…who claim to be able to help me do this. Yet I also seek multiple identifications with others, on the basis of social, cultural and biological characteristics…on one level I am the product of my unique personal biography. Yet who I am (or who I think I am) varies according to who I am with…although I am by no means entirely free to choose how I am defined.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>“ Traditional sources of identity formation are no longer so straightforward… </li></ul>
  5. 8. <ul><li>Adolescence = “identity crisis” Marcia </li></ul>
  6. 9. Foucault <ul><li>Who we are is far from a matter of choice – it is the product of powerful and subtle forms of “governmentality” – goes beyond Giddens view of self-reflexivity – more sinister process of self-regulation and monitoring </li></ul>
  7. 10. How do you put all this together? <ul><li>Theories of identity </li></ul><ul><li>Collective identity </li></ul><ul><li>Theories of representation </li></ul><ul><li>The role of the media </li></ul><ul><li>Media influence (idedologies) </li></ul><ul><li>Audience uses </li></ul>
