The recognition that identity is mutable, multi-layered and subject to
multiple modes of construction and de-construction has contributed to
problematizing the issues associated with its representation in discourse,
which has recently been attracting increasing attention in different
disciplinary areas. Identity representation is the main focus of this
volume, which analyses instances of multimedia and multimodal communication
to the public at large for commercial, informative, political or cultural
purposes. In particular, it examines the impact of the increasingly
sophisticated forms of expression made available by the evolution of
communication technologies, especially in computer-mediated or web-based
settings, but also in more traditional media (press, cinema, TV). The basic
assumption shared by all contributors is that communication is the locus
where identities, either collective, social or individual, are deliberately
constructed and negotiated.

In their variety of topics and approaches, the studies collected in this
volume testify to the criticality of representing personal, professional
and organizational identities through the new media, as their ability to
reach a virtually unlimited audience amplifies the potential political,
cultural and economic impact of discursive identity constructions. They
also confirm that new highly sophisticated media can forge identities well
beyond the simply iconic or textual representation, generating deeply
interconnected webs of meaning capable of occupying an expanding - and
adaptable - discursive space.
