On Early View: “Identity Dilemmas: Toward a More Situated Understanding” by Jennifer Leigh Dunn and S.J. Creek #sssi #sociology #identity

In Symbolic Interaction there is a long-standing interest in “identity dilemmas”, i.e. when people experience “conflicting sets of normative expectations, and by the holding of “contradictory” identities”. In their article “Identity Dilemmas: Toward a More Situated Understanding” Jennifer Leigh Dunn and S.J. Creek argue that identity dilemmas arise as “the product of generic social processes inherent in systems of stratification, including normative systems”.
