a discussion of civic identity

This "in lieu of" a substantive post, since today was a long day of teaching and meetings. But I would like to recommend a conversation on a new blog called The Civic Development Network. Several scholars, including me, had an elaborate email discussion last spring about whether people can have "identities" as active citizens. My colleagues were mostly developmental psychologists who are sophisticated about what identities are, in general. The whole discussion is now being posted (with our permission) as a series of blog posts. This is the link to save if you want to follow the discussion or join in by commenting.
