Much social psychological research addresses people’s subjective identification with various social groups. In this talk I will consider individuals’ performance of these identities. I will draw upon research pursued with Hindu pilgrims attending a north Indian pilgrimage event (the Magh Mela) and with Scottish Muslim women. This work suggests the importance of attending to the social factors that facilitate the enactment of social identities and to the consequences of such enactment for individuals’ identification and identity-related behaviour.

This talk is part of the Social Psychology Seminar Series (SPSS) series.
