Globalization and Identity Development: A Chinese Perspective
Cheng, Min; Berman, Steven L.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n138 p103-121 Win 2012
This chapter begins with a discussion of the unique experience of adolescents and emerging adults who grew up with globalization in China and how it has affected their sense of self. We then discuss the effects of globalization on identity development in general, with a special focus on the sociohistorical context of China. We also review and critique the psychological literature that has been conducted on identity within Chinese and Chinese American populations. Finally, we discuss the applicability of Western concepts of identity on a culture that does not necessarily share the same value structure.
