Abstract: We explain support for the EU as an indicator for pan-national identity. Classifying identity parties on three dimensions, we find supporters of nationalist parties oppose the EU and supporters of sub-cultural defense parties support EU as counterweiight to the nation state from which they seek independence. However,exclusivists (who oppose outsiders joining their community) oppose the EU regardless of other identities

Abstract: This study advances identity theory by investigating how the moral identity, normative behavior, and emotions operate in different social contexts, specifically when the moral identity is activated (or not activated) and when individuals are alone or in different types of groups. This extends identity theory by including key processes in social identity theory (identity activation and group membership) which have not been examined in the existing literature concerning the control systems approach to identity. A survey (Part 1) and experiment (Part 2) were administered to examine how the moral identity process operates for individuals in different social contexts. The survey measured individuals’ moral identities. In the experiment, a situation laced with moral codes was simulated to discover the effects of identity activation and group membership on various identity processes. The results show that the moral identity influences normative behavior only when activated, regardless of social context.

Abstract: This study uses twenty in-depth face-to-face interviews with college seniors at West Coast State University (WCS) to explore the ways in which they choose and maintained their future occupational identities. Past studies have centered on the concept of social reproduction to illustrate ways in which cultural and social capital play a vital role in the success of learning how to “do college”. While these concepts help to explain, the way in which a person perceives opportunity structures the ways in which the core intention or sentiment that drives the person actions is aligned with these structures is less apparent. To understand the occupational choices and the link to core intentions this paper links together the concept of habitus with that of theories of identity. This paper centers on the question; how do university seniors perceive the process of creating a future identity. In this paper, I explore the ways in which both first generation (FGS) and non-first generation (NFGS) college students navigate the higher education system to align their educational experience and future to their core intention concerning their work life. These data suggest that students select a situational identity in the context of the university institutional settings as a means to create the foundation for the selection of a future identity that links to a core intention that was created before entering college.

"Counterfeit Identity Documents: How Naming Standards Can Alleviate Identity Fraud and Improve Identity Verification" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p515567_index.html>

Abstract: Counterfeit documentation is easily produced and used to create fraudulent identities which undermine the entire criminal justice system. Tests conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) have demonstrated the ease with which counterfeit identity documents can be used to enter the U.S., gain access to government buildings, obtain genuine identification, purchase firearms, and to obtain social security numbers for fictitious identities. The purpose of this paper is to develop the rationale for naming standards to alleviate many of the problems associated with identity document fraud and to help improve identity verification procedures.

Abstract: Particularly in the study of socially sensitive topics, it is important to differentiate between identity and identity salience. While identity refers to demographic characteristics (e.g., gender, race, social class), identity salience indicates how important a characteristic is to an individual. Research on identity development and socialization suggests that identity salience shapes not only perceptions of self and others, but also impacts behavior. Study on stereotyping, for example, demonstrates that exposure to discriminatory messages about a meaningful identity characteristic impacts attitudes and performance on tasks like test taking. Racial socialization theories outline how pride in cultural identity both reinforces the importance of certain identity characteristics, and impacts attitudes and behavior. Similarly, individuals’ subjective sense of who they are is likely to contribute to their level of engagement in their communities and their reaction to interventions meant to facilitate it.

The current study piloted a measure of Subjective Personal Identity (SPI) to gauge which aspects of identity are most important, and if participants feel marginalized for being a member of that group. This paper explores: (1) whether SPI predicts participants' attitudes and behaviors above and beyond demographic information alone; (2) how feeling marginalized as a result of a SPI relates to attitudes and behavior; and (3) whether (in)congruence between feeling marginalized and being a member of a marginalized group (as identified through demographic questions) correlates with different attitudes and behaviors.

At a large, diverse, metropolitan university, 240 students participated in the study. Results indicated that demographics, SPI, and congruence between the two were correlated with different attitudes and behaviors. In particular, participants who felt marginalized were more likely to report personal goals relating to civic engagement, reported more awareness of privilege and less victim blaming, and had less implicit bias towards people living in poverty. Implications for future research that includes social identity are discussed.
