DescriptionContentsAuthors

In Identity Trouble, international scholars from discourse analysis, social semiotics, cultural theory, ethnography, conversational analysis, organization and pedagogy studies, come together to focus on the rising pressures on contemporary identity and on how people are increasingly crossing the borders that traditionally define self, space, learning and work. Particular attention is paid to occasions where our identity accomplishment comes under threat, or fails - the troubles that emerge during people's identity constructions and enactments as they face, or try to explain, rising personal, social, cultural and organizational uncertainties.
The book is in two Parts: the first concerned with identity as articulation, challenge and resistance in the narration of public self , and the second concerned with analyses of educational, professional and institutional identities.
