Abstract
  • This dissertation is a study of how 5th grade students come to experience, construct, and understand ‘American’ identity, and sameness and difference, both related to and separate from ‘American’ in the context of one rural North Carolina school. This dissertation seeks to answer three research questions regarding identity, American identity and elementary age children: (1) How is a figured world of ‘American’ played out in one classroom’s practices? (2) In what ways do 5th grade students identify sameness and difference with regard to who they and others are? (3) Overall, What is ‘American’ identity and their relationship to it?
