In contemporary globalized societies, the development of an identity has increasingly become a project for the individual. In order for intercultural co-existence to work, this process requires the support of appropriate sociopolitical measures. Hence knowledge about existing identity needs and their challenges is necessary to develop such measures.

The cultural anthropological analysis of fiction offers a further approach to assess these areas of emotional knowledge. Identification of a socio-cultural groupís emotional cultural knowledge becomes possible through comparative analysis of their literary works. This allows some insights into the social demands of creating an identity as well as the conditions under which conflicts develop.
In order to determine the practical relevance of these findings for sociopolitical questions, they must be evaluated in the context of interdisciplinary cooperation and with the involvement of individuals representing these socio-cultural groups.
