Abstract

Opening paragraph:
In this section of the Handbook, most of the formative forces explored for identities have been social: in terms of theoretical resources for understanding identities, the current conjuncture highlights social groups, power relations, disciplinary practices, discourses and narratives. In this chapter I am going to take relations as the core formative principle, not social relations but rather relationality (specifically unconscious intersubjective dynamics) as a founding principle for identity formation and transition. I want to show not only that relationality is fundamental to identity but how it is.
