Children's Social Identities
Bennett, Mark
Infant and Child Development, v20 n4 p353-363 Jul-Aug 2011
This paper provides a brief overview of recent developmental research on themes related to children's social identities. Initially, consideration is given to the capacity for social categorization, following which attention is given to children's developing conceptions of social identities, their identification with social groups, and the consequences of identification upon various phenomena such as ingroup favouritism and well-being. Finally, some personal thoughts on the wider political implications of this research are offered.
