About this book

Western society has become increasingly diverse, but stereotypes still persist in the public discourse. This volume explores how people who have a marked status in society - among them Travellers, teenage mothers, homeless people - manage their identity in response to these stereotypes.

Reviews

“Marked Identities prompts important questions about the nature of narrative and identity, about researching alterity, about the force of simplistic and reductive social analyses, and about adaption, resilience, resistance and change. It rides a current in narrative studies that offers researchers tools with which to articulate the complex and fluid processes of becoming, and hence may be of interest to researchers looking to refresh narrative explorations of educational identities and inequalities.” (Mark Pulsford, Power and Education, Vol. 8 (1), 2016)
