Knowing Yourself - A Course on Identities

What will I Learn?

Every Saturday, Sunday between Dec 18 to Jan 3
09:00 am to 10:00 am IST

We will focus on identifying various identities and how they play a role in shaping oneself. And the potential ways in which the society defines them for us. For this we will focus on three concepts where identities are socially constructed, they change over time and their relationship with power. We aim to understand why part of ourselves makes us feel powerful and others not so much.

By the end of the course, you will
  • Identify different identities

  • Understand that identities are a social construct and they are dynamic in nature

  • Be able to link different identities to their own experiences and understand the concept of intersectionality
