Social Construction, Multiculturalism, And Social Identity

Satisfactory Essays
Based on our reading for this chapter, as well as the preexisting knowledge I had of these terms from other courses I have taken, these are the definitions I constructed for social construction, multiculturalism, and social identity. A social construction can be described as parameter or boundaries for a group, based on ethics and values. Social constructions are generally dictated by people in society that possess more power than most. Multiculturalism is the awareness, recognition, and support of diversities within culture. Social identity is a person’s construction of who they are, based on what groups in society they affiliate with/ belong to. After defining theses terms, I think it is interesting to see how the compare and correlate.
