>for example, the Enlightenment; the Counter-Enlightenment; 
>Irrationalism; Existentialism; Post-Structuralism; Post-Colonialism 
>etc.  Likewise, it could also include the ideologies of a particular 
>class of people.

>  2. Diasporic and transcultural identities
>
>
>
>-         this could include the notion of "becoming" identities; of 
>identities being interchangeable; the concept of hybridity; and the 
>effects of migration on identities.
>
>
>
>3.	Narrative identity
>
>-     this addresses identity as a result of narration, which can be
