Journal overview

Questions of culture and cultural identity have emerged at the core of issues of social and political division, contestation and transformation across the globe and between and within nation-states in recent years.

Identities: Global Studies in Culture and Power explores the formation and transformation of racial, ethnic, national, transnational and postcolonial identities in the contemporary world. It locates culture, representations and identities as key sites for processes of domination, struggle and resistance, recognising their intersection with other forms of social division and identification.

Identities provides an interdisciplinary space for new theoretically informed empirical research and critical analysis which opens up questions of race, ethnicity and culture. It draws on and brings together insights from anthropology, cultural studies, sociology, social policy, cultural geography, political science and social psychology. Identities seeks to engage established and emerging scholars in the field in contributing high quality articles, special issues, commentaries and debates which address key questions of culture and identity with which the journal is engaged.
