Have you looked at any of Yvette Solomon's work ? (of Lancaster university, Dept of Educational Research), starting with her 'Practice of Mathematics' (1989), London, Routledge. But there are a number of excellent online articles out there as well.
Don't be disheartened... you've got a fascinating topic!

hi all,
i am doing a PhD study on "(Socio-) Mathematical Identity"
and i wonder if anybody has fully operationalised the
concept of Mathematical Identity. [a person's identity with
respect to mathematical practices or how "mathematical"
one is]
i am generally following Anna Sfard's approach of defining
identity as a narrative, but i got shot down by my reviewers
because i have not shown in full detail what Mathematical
Identity really entails i.e. what are all the aspects/dimensions
of mathematical identity.
any help or pointers would be deeply appreciated.
Ng, FK
PhD student
