Social Locations and Cultural Identity
Transcript of Social Locations and Cultural Identity
Culture Iceberg Model
Our identities are complex.
Dominant groups hold the power and authority
Write down a list of your identities that you would use to describe yourself.
Subordinates are labeled as "defective and substandard in significant ways" (Tatum, 7).
"The dominant group is often seen as the norm for humanity" (Tatum, 8).
Why this matters?
Identities are incomplete; we can never know everything about ourselves.
In order to understand anyone else, we have to understand ourselves.
Belonging to dominant or subordinate groups shape world views, including our biases, stereotypes, and prejudices. This is called positionality.
Identity: Shaped by individual characteristics, family dynamics, historical factors, and social and political contexts.
