This research seeks to identify different social identities utilized by researchers as they navigate their day-to-day life and how they communicate those identities. This mixed-methods project draws on structuration and identity theory to investigate three research questions:

  • What social identities do researchers utilize?
  • How do researchers communicate their social identity?
  • What are the perceived or real consequences of not proficiently demonstrating competency in social identity?
