Nation and Identity - pg63

I found this extract particularly interesting, it really relates to the theme of my project, how we are seen in an overall society and how we project ourselves onto that society through individual social experiences, influenced by our upbringing and the expectations and opinions of those around us. I want to take this forward and produce experiments which will allow me to encompass aspects of my Irish heritage and my view of it from what I have been told from family members and seen in everyday life. I think that by using my family as a starting point it provides me with a really solid link between nationality and individuality.
