Chapter Summary

Building on anthropological research that focuses on the role of dress with respect to identity formation, Claire Dwyer (1999) conducted in-depth group interview research with forty-nine young British women regarding their gender and ethnic identity construction. It is important to note that the categories employed in this book (borderland identities, double consciousness, and so forth) are useful for organizational and conceptual purposes; however, these are overlapping, non-discrete categories. The majority of sociological research on double consciousness has centered on the African-American experience, and it is in this tradition that Sharlene Hesse-Biber and Emily Barko present their empirical study of African-American women attending predominantly white colleges. Helene Lee's work focuses on how migration and labor histories have influenced the development of hybrid identities within the Korean diaspora.
