does not create itself. It is a social construct. 
The Self
Every culture marks the contours of what is laudable in individuals and what is deplorable, what becomes men and what women, what is licit and what illicit, what normal and what abnormal. The Zvi Yavetz School of Historical Studies in the Lester and Sally Entin Faculty of Humanities, Tel-Aviv University, has launched an interdisciplinary workshop to contextualize the self, to try and study the explicit and hidden, at times fiercely denied, forces that shape it. We invited participants who study different aspects of self-formation over space and time. This is what they told us.
