A famous quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet occurs in Act 3 Scene 1. In his soliloquy Hamlet asks “To be, or not to be: That is the Question.”  While Hamlet is questioning his life and his existence, many of us now use his lines to question our acceptance of a role, or an identity, and the effect this role/identity has upon our life.

Identity is the theme of this issue. Select the link below to read about the different explorations of this theme.
