Title: Identity Trouble
Edited By: CarmenRosaCaldas-Coulthard
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=270172
Description:

In Identity Trouble, international scholars from discourse analysis, social
semiotics, cultural theory, ethnography, conversational analysis,
organization and pedagogy studies, come together to focus on the rising
pressures on contemporary identity and on how people are increasingly
crossing the borders that traditionally define self, space, learning and
work. Particular attention is paid to occasions where our identity
accomplishment comes under threat, or fails - the troubles that emerge
during people's identity constructions and enactments as they face, or try
to explain, rising personal, social, cultural and organizational uncertainties.
