Maintaining the Borders: Identity & Politics by Jamie Heckert

Maintaining the Borders: identity & politics Jamie Heckert 30 October 2002 Identity is the process of creating and maintaining borders, creating different kinds of people. This keeps the world packaged in tidy little boxes. These boxes, in turn, are necessary for the violence and domination of hierarchical societies. There cannot be masters or slaves, bosses or workers, men or women, whites or blacks, leaders or followers, heterosexuals or queers, without… …
