Ethnic & Cultural Identity : Perceptions, Discrimination & Social Challenges Hardback
Edited by Adrienne D. Warner
This book provides the latest research in ethnic and cultural identity.
The first chapter examines the relationship between ethnic identity, culture, body dissatisfaction and related disorder eating behaviors among diverse ethnic groups of adolescent and young female adults.
The second chapter discusses migrants' perceptions of intergroup relations and ethnic group statue in the host society.
The third chapter provides an overview of research on perceived discrimination, which is considered the most severe stressor for minority individuals given its persuasive impact on health and well-being.
The fourth and fifth chapters include discussions on the relationship between openness to experience, ethnocentrism, and ethnic prejudice, and the effects of language policy on ethnic minority language maintenance among a relatively newer community in Manchester.
The sixth chapter examines how social, gendered, and economic forces have changed the ways in which family systems create and sustain a familial identity.
The second half of the book includes a narrative analysis to explore how a sample of Muslim-identified women attributed meaning to the practice of veiling and the contexts by which women decided to - or not to -wear the hijab; a summary of the results of a qualitative study exploring the influence of discrimination on identity negotiation in transracial international adoptees; provides a review of established health risks to Latino-identifying persons in the United States and successful interventions with various samples; deconstructs the Latin lover stereotype; and finally, maps racial neoliberalism in U.S. popular culture.
