ANAND GIRIDHARADAS http://bit.ly/eo34fu Using the internet: entertainment information socialization What are the elements of identity that you’d like to adapt for digital distribution?

Andrea Zellner: @AndreaZellner
Paul Oh: @poh As we see our face, figure, and dress in the [looking] glass, and are interested in them because they are ours, and pleased or otherwise with them according as they do or do not answer to what we should like them to be; so in imagination we perceive in another's mind some thought of our appearance, manners, aims, deeds, character, friends, and so on, and are variously affected by it. … A self-idea of this sort seems to have three principal elements: the imagination of our appearance to the other person, the imagination of his judgment of that appearance, and some sort of self-feeling, such as pride or mortification. Charles Horton Cooley
1902 adapted from Nell Duke The stairwell as liminal space, in-between the designations of identity, becomes the process of symbolic interaction, the connective tissue that constructs the difference between upper and lower, black and white. The hither and thither of the stairwell, the temporal movement and passage that it allows, prevents identities at either end of it from settling into primordial polarities. This interstitial passage between fixed identifications opens up the possibility of a cultural hybridity that entertains difference without an assumed or imposed hierarchy. Homi K. Bhabha
1994 It is when we watched on TV screen[s] the two WTC towers collapsing, that it became possible to experience the falsity of the "reality TV shows": even if this shows are "for real," people still act in them - they simply play themselves. The standard disclaimer in a novel ("characters in this text are a fiction") holds also for the participants of the reality soaps: what we see there are fictional characters, even if they play themselves for the real. Slavoj Zizek
9/15/2001 “We haven’t found anyone,” says [U. Chicago psychologist Sian] Beilock, “that we can’t screw up by suggesting that some group they’re a member of is bad at something.” … Stereotype threat, it turns out, is a surprisingly democratic dynamic. Obviously stereotypes such as bigotry and sexism are not applied equitably. But no one is immune to the mechanism that stereotype threat applies. For this reason, some psychologists are starting to call it “identity threat.” As [U. Az. social psychologist] Jeff Stone put it, “We all have multiple identities, and they can all be discriminated against. It’s the identities we carry that make us vulnerable here.” Sian Beilock Jeff Stone David Dobbs

What are my various RL/F2F identities in my personal life? Professional life?
