TOPIC 2: Self-Concept and Relational Communication Paper – Rough Draft

Write a 1,000-1,250-word paper, applying what you have learned about the study of relational communication thus far in the class by doing the following:

1. After reviewing this topic’s assigned readings, explain the role of self-concept, identity, or self-perception in relationships (think about Goffman’s distinction between “front region” and “back region” or Identity Management Theory). How do these concepts influence communication choices in friend, work, romantic, or family relationships? (Suggestion: Only choose one or two relationship types to address; there is not enough space to give adequate attention to all of them)

2. What is the role of faith and religious or spiritual identity in relationships? How does it affect communication in relationships?

3. Use current communication research to support an argument about how new media (i.e., social networking sites/apps) influence identity construction and identity management in the relationships that were discussed in prompt 1 above.

Include a minimum of six scholarly sources.
