What To venture a more comprehensive definition, “identity

What really is the concern here is identity based on
socio-political aspect. The main discussion is under the criticism of Robert G.
Dunn and his book “identity crisis: a social critique of
postmodernity “. All his major points in this subject matter is how
identity formation occurs and what are the components requiring for it. The
first issue is identity, identification and difference. Based on his arguments,
identity formation is rooted in the group differences. That is what makes a
divergent movement among groups- social and political, identities of race,
class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and other subordinated social categories
and groupings. The more significant these groups are, differences will be
remarkable and identity formations play along with identification. The issue of
identity has been a great deal for recent decade not specific to the
postmodernism. Despite an abundance of concern about, however, hardly any
serious analytical attention has been given to the underlying social historical
causes of identity crises of our time, both collective and personal, or broader
structural conditions of social change behind these crises. But as a matter of
fact, identity in postmodern era has a lot of discussion to cover and so many
arguments to put them under debate of this serious concern. Exploration of
identity and identity politics in postmodernism and its social crisis
emphasizes on the historical conditions of identity formation.  First of all I want to have a definition for
identity under the political scheme. This is called identity politics. It
usually defines itself or reveals to be an ambiguous and ideologically
conflicted phenomenon. To venture a more comprehensive definition, “identity
politics refers to a strategy whereby individuals define themselves through
identification with or membership in groups or categories regarded as the
source of distinct feelings and experiences of marginalization and subordinations
(Briggs, 2017:341). Positioning identity by these means becomes distinguishable
for oneself from the rest of the society. Postmodernism is always obsessed with
fragmentation in every criterion. Here in this notion, identity, fragmented
identities also is under debate. Identity has been a problematized by mixed
intellectual and cultural changes. 
Class, race, gender and sexuality now are more complex than before.
Major shift has occurred in recent period and has caused paradigmatic changes,
especially in western societies cultural and specifically everyday changes.
These comprise conventional cultural and social identities in routine everyday
life. What we really should notice that identity politics represents a response
to generalized condition of destabilization associated with multiplicity of
historical changes. That has caused domestic and global changes in relations.
Social relation approach to identity and difference is argumentative here which
is also viewed by identity as an entity attributes of group but as some type of
procedure. As many critiques believe, there is no fixed identity for an
individual in the postmodern society. Self is hybrid, many selves that are no
boundaries between them. Shifting from one to others, there are interrelated
with each other and in some levels, they act separately and in others ones they
are unified. Here in social-political aspect this is being shown in relation
with groups but focusing on their differences and pointing on how differences
help those forming identities.
