Transcript of Identity: Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Sexuality

Stuart hall defined ethnicity as affiliation or identity within a group of people bound by common ancestry and culture.
Ethnic ethnicity is greatly affected by scale and place.
It is also invoked when many distinct culture group is clustered in one area.
more in ethnicity
Ethnicity is defined by a group of people who share a common nation, ancestry, or location.
Hall states “[ethnicity] Historically constructed like all cultural identities”
More specific then race
Residential Segregation
Douglas Massey and Nancy Denton defined residential segregation as "the degree to which two or more groups live separately from one another, in different parts of the urban environment.“
Many residential segregation is in Africa in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
Invasion and Succession
Processes by which new immigrants move to a city and dominate or take over a area or neighborhoods occupied by older immigrant groups.
In New York, Puerto Ricans invaded the immigrant Jewish neighborhood of east Harlem in the early twentieth century, and they took over the neighborhood.
China town Mexicali is also another example.
According to Gillian Rose, identity is how we “make sense of ourselves”
How do we define ourselves? We define ourselves through experiences, emotions, connections, and rejections.
Identity is who we are and how people see us.
Identities are marked through what we do and what we use.

Quiz Time
Identifying Against
According to Edward Said, identifying against means defining the “other”, and defining ourselves as “not the other”.
Defining someone as the “other” is by skin color.
Defining someone as “not the other” is by determining who the person is.
Race is a categorization of people based on biological characteristics.
All humans are part of the human race. Everyone’s race differs from the other groups.
Races to which people refer to are not biologically based. Everyone is from the same race but we are defined into other races.
According to Benedict Anderson, racism is an attitude towards visible differences in individuals.
Making fun of someone’s race is racism.
Sunlight stimulates the production of melanin, which protects skin from damages from ultra violet rays, so their skin may be a different color than their race and you mistake them for another race
Sense of place
Like identity, sense of place is a fluid.
Sense of place is by remembering important events that occurred in that place or by labeling a place with a certain character
Gillian Rose explains that identity is connected to a particular place by a feeling that you belong to that place. It’s a place where you feel comfortable and at home.
Space and Place
Space, defined by Doreen Massey and Pat Jess as "social relations stretched out“
Place is a particular articulation of those social relations as they come together, consider it as cross section of space.

Gendered places are places where they have different rules about who gets to do what according to gender.
For example, when people make places, they make a place designated for women or men.
A place can be gendered within the interactions of the people living in that place.
For example, in sub-Saharan Africa, women are mainly in the rural areas where men are in urban areas.
Queer theory
Elder knopp and nast are geographers that study sexuality by including the queer theory.
Queer theory is originally about gay politics and other groups which embrace queer as identity.
queer theory shows the study of gender and issues of sexuality

Identities are fluid, and are constantly changing.
Identities involve ones race, sexuality, and physical characteristics, as well as the choices one makes.

The ideology of race brought upon racism.
more in racism
Racism is the belief that any one race is superior than every other race.
Racism is also believed to be determined by socio-economic classes. The poorer a class, the more racist that class tends to be.
Race can be increased by the government. The American Census Bureau divides the country into white, and nonwhite.
more in residential segregation
A large amount of residential segregation occurs in the world. People that are of the same race, sexuality, and ethnicity tend to clump together in a city.
In the 1960’s, when the civil rights movement outlawed the legality of residential segregation, the cities were left residentally segregated.
