How does a cultural identity develop? Using a GESIS panel sample of German adults aged 21-73, Débora Maehler examines the influence of individual background, role transitions, and involvement in the social environment on the development of a cultural identity. Of particular interest are the transitions in different identity stages and the moderating effect of critical life events on identity development over time.
