Definition of Cultural identity

Cultural identity Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Cultural identity is the identity or feeling of belonging to a group. It is part of a person's self-conception and self-perception and is related to nationality, ethnicity, religion, social class, generation, locality or any kind of social group that has its own distinct culture. In this way, cultural identity is both characteristic of the individual but also of the culturally identical group of members sharing the same cultural identity. Cultural identity is similar to and overlaps with identity politics.
