WP76 Enough is enough: The heuristics of authenticity in superdiversity

Blommaert & Varis
Collection: Key word


This short paper sketches an empirical theory of identity in a context of superdiversity.? It intends to offer a realistic, yet generalizable, approach to inquiries into the complexities of contemporary identity practices. Such practices now evolve in real-life as well as in virtual contexts, and connections between both social universes are of major importance for our understanding of what superdiverse society is about.
