As they navigate college, FGCS coordinate these values, practices, and goals with those of their families, noncollege-going friends, and communities. We draw on longitudinal and cross-sectional…

In public discourse in Germany, identity is widely constructed along the juxtaposition of two categories: "German"--defined primordially in ethnic terms--and "migrant" or "of migration background."
