The relationship between language, discourse and identity has always been a
major area of sociolinguistic investigation. In recent times, the field
has been revolutionized as previous models - which assumed our identities
to be based on stable relationships between linguistic and social variables
- have been challenged by pioneering new approaches to the topic.

This volume brings together a team of leading experts to explore discourse
in a range of social contexts. By applying a variety of new analytical
tools and concepts, the contributors show how we build images of ourselves
through language, how society moulds us into different categories, and how
we negotiate our membership of those categories.

Drawing on numerous interactional settings (the workplace; medical
interviews; education), in a variety of genres (narrative; conversation;
interviews), and amongst different communities (immigrants; patients;
adolescents; teachers), this revealing volume sheds new light on how our
social practices can help to shape our identities.
