Title: Discourse, Identities and Roles in Specialized Communication
Edited By: Giuliana Garzone
James Archibald
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=430494
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 125
Description:

The studies presented in this volume focus on two distinct but related areas
of specialized communication professional and academic settings, resting on
an anti-essentialist notion of identity as a phenomenon that emerges from the
dialectic between individual and society.

The authors start from a detailed analysis of discourse practices as
evidenced in texts, their production and the professional performance
patterns which underlie such practices, and explore the way the actors, roles
and identities are constructed in language and discourse. In particular, by
highlighting discursive attitudes and aptitudes, they underscore the need to
understand discourse in light of norms of professional responsibility, showing
that not only do professionals and academics use discourse to create self-
identity, but they also use identity constructed through discourse to influence
society.
