Contemporary global processes are made more evident through technology. Through the increased access to information, people are confronted with several ethical dilemmas that contribute to the shaping of their identities. In this guide, we will explore how science and technology play a role in determining our personal identities.

Globalization and Identity 🌏

As the world has become more interconnected, poeple's personal identity are also affected. Some of these effects include:
  • Exposure to different cultural and ideas, generating cross-cultural identities
  • Reinforcement or erosion of tradition
  • Creation of hybrid identities that combine elements of different cultures
  • Development of a sense of global citizenship
Global Citizenship/Ciudadania Global: refers to the sense of belonging to the world and commitment to the global community / se refiere al sentido de pertenencia al mundo y comprometimiento con la comunidad global.

Social Media and Personal Identity

Social media is also playing a towering role in our sense of personal identity. It can both reinforce our identities, through being a channel of personal expression, and disrupt them, by exposing us to different beliefs and ideas. Here are some ways that social media can impact our identities:
  • Increased opportunity for connection can shift our perspectives
  • Heightened awareness of one's reputation
  • Clash between the individual and the world, as social media has made access to world events more available, which in turn makes people reflect about their place at this point in history
  • The development of social images that include a curated self-image
