This subject explores how identities and cultures are constructed and contested within the shifting domains of transnationalism constituted by intersections across local, national and global arenas. It examines some of the ways in which the social media and the latest information technologies impact the formation of identities and cultures through the dynamics of globalization. It considers the changing narratives of class, gender, and ethnic relations and their impact on youth identities. It shows how global movements of people (and capital) either voluntary or forced, challenge previously accepted notions of identity and culture, especially traditional belief systems and result in many people seeking certainty in an era that is subject to rapid and relentless change. It considers issues of identity politics, interculturalism and social conflict.
These shifts have profound implications for education, requiring an examination of the ways in which the changing meanings of key principles and concepts such as human rights, democracy, nationalism and identity relate to the teaching of citizenship. The subject therefore examines the future of citizenship, with a view to understanding and enhancing the role of global citizenship education.
