"Identity politics" has always been beleaguered territory. Yet recently the debate around “identity" has intensified and (with Trump) even developed new fronts. This issue examines the present state of identity politics in the West, finding the commodification of identity in mass culture (as in the art market) to be a leading influence. We also recognize a divide between, on the one hand, non-dominant communities cohering around identity so as to become visible together; and on the other hand, individuals aiming to stand out as special or "unique" by dint of membership in various non-dominant groups. Such ambiguity, in the face of current leadership (see issue cover) lends only all the more urgency, we feel, for a serious engagement with “identity” vis-a-vis “politics” now.
