The Public Identity Work of Evangelical Christian Students
Moran, Christy D.
Journal of College Student Development, v48 n4 p418-434 Jul-Aug 2007
As part of a larger investigation into the experiences of 25 evangelical Christian student leaders at two public universities, students were interviewed to determine how they conceptualized their religious identity as well as how that dimension of their identity impacted their roles and responsibilities as students. Results suggest that the public identity work of these students may involve two interrelated, yet distinct, processes: identity revelation and "identity authentication."
