Global Migration Seminar: Knowing Who You Are - Ethnic Identity among Young People in Contemporary Sweden

Research profile seminar

How do young people in contemporary Sweden reflect on their ethnic identity and what is the role of Others in the stories they tell of how they became aware of their ethnic identity or their belonging to a specific ethnic group?

Before the seminar (from 8:30), the participants are invited to breakfast in the kitchen at the School of Global Studies.

The seminar will present the results from two recent studies on young people's ethnic identity.

The first study is about what types of stories young people connect with their ethnic belonging and identity. The second study deals with what the role "others" play in the stories told by young people regarding how they became aware of their ethnic belonging and identity.

Both studies are part of the GREEN-project, "Gothenburg Research on Ethnicity-related Experiences and identity Narratives" which is an interdisciplinary cooperation between the Department of Psychology at University of Gothenburg and the University of Minnesota, USA.

The GREEN- project examines young people's identities and experiences , with a focus on the stories young persons tell about who they are and what they have experienced. Those stories are individual and are shaped by our background and our experiences - our stories tell the history of us and who we are as individuals.
