Sheldon Stryker

This course explores the concept of self and related
concepts as used in social psychological theory and
research.  It begins with an overview and history of
that use; it then discusses various contemporary
perspectives on self, alternative theoretical usages,
and empirical research making use of the concept.
Finally, the course focuses on "identity theory" and
related research.  While there are lectures, the course
will basically proceed as a seminar; students will
prepare papers to be presented to the class.
