Discourses frame identity, that is, linguistic processes and other strategies embedded in social practices shape the way individuals and groups (re)create themselves. Language and society are central to identity formation and expression. Our aim is to turn to a multi- and inter- disciplinary approach from fields such as linguistics, literature, sociology, psychology, history, and gender studies, among others, in order to render a comprehensive analysis of this complex issue – the drama of identity.
Plenary speakers will be Ann Banfield (University of California, Berkeley), Irma Taavitsainen (University of Helsinki), Michael Toolan (University of Birmingham), Ruth Wodak (University of Lancaster) and Laura Alba (UNED, Spain).
