Who am I? Identity, nationality and belonging
by The Open University
This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.
The pathway includes trigger material to start you thinking about nationality and citizenship. A video featuring Ruth Barnett, a Jewish refugee, and Moazzam Begg, an ex-Guantanamo detainee, prompt considerations of whether we have a right to our nationality, and whether a state should protect its citizens.
The pathway then considers personal identity. Learning resources focus on how much of an impact your own family and friends have had on shaping your identity. It then looks at ethnicity and identity, featuring one of the UK’s leading cultural theorists, Professor Stuart Hall.
