ABSTRACT The study of identity forms a critical cornerstone within modern sociological of Cooley and Mead, identity Introduced have thought. by theworks studies evolvedandgrown central to current sociological discourse. Microsociological perspectives dominated work published through the1970s. Sociologists focused primarily onthe formation ofthe"me," exploring thewaysinwhich interpersonal interactions moldan individual's senseof self. Recent literature constitutes an antithesis tosuchconcerns. refocus attention from theindividual to Manyworks others thecollective; discourse over thesystematic ofbehavior; prioritize scrutiny some researchers as a sourceof mobilization rather thana approach identity of it; andtheanalysis of virtual product identities nowcompetes with research on identities established in thecopresent world. This essay explores all such in keyworks since1980. I close with a looktoward agendaas raised published thefuture, aimedat synthesizing traditional and current suggesting trajectories concerns.
