Meeting Description: The study of identity and its production is far from a straightforward endeavor. In multilingual societies, the situation is arguably even more complex since multiple languages and language varieties offer speakers a wider range of resources to dedicate to the process of identity performance and construction, making the challenges for identity researchers ever more daunting. Recognizing that no single approach is adequate for analyzing identity in all its dimensions, the Digital Intangible Heritage in Asia (DIHA) research group in NTU firmly believes that the strengths of various research traditions - quantitative and qualitative, experimental and ethnographic - must be encouraged to cross-pollinate. Through this workshop, we aim to achieve just this sort of cross-pollination, bringing together sociocultural linguistics experts from psychology, linguistics, sociology, and interactive media design to produce a new and creative synergy across disciplines that can help us to come to a better understanding of how identities emerge in multilingual settings such as Singapore.
