Title: Identity Issues
Subtitle: Literary and Linguistic Landscapes
Edited By: Vesna Lopičić
Biljana Mišić Ilić
Description:

The book Identity Issues: Literary and Linguistic Landscapes is a
collection of essays, set out to explore the notion of identity as a
constantly relevant, very complex, multi-faceted phenomenon. Understanding
identity in a very broad sense, the authors approach it from various
angles, highlighting its various aspects. The first section includes
literary explorations that discuss identity issues of class, race, nation
and history, as depicted in several works of, mostly, contemporary
Anglo-American literature. The second section brings various linguistic
studies of identity, starting with the usual sociolinguistic issues, but
also including a range of other research routes, which draw upon insights
from psychology, sociology, historical linguistics, cognitive linguistics,
lexicology, functional grammar, and applied linguistics.

The book addresses a broad academic audience. Due to its wide scope, both
in topics covered and in varied theoretical approaches, it is not aimed
only at literary scholars studying modern Anglo-American literature, nor
only at sociolinguists interested in language identity, but to numerous
academics, as well as undergraduate and graduate students, who are
interested in some of the disciplines that provided the framework for
various articles (literary studies, sociology, cognitive linguistics,
lexicology, functional grammar, academic writing, English teaching). The
book would be particularly appealing to all those who are interested in
examining a variety of identity issues from diverse angles.

The authors of the articles come from Serbia, UK, Canada, Japan, Norway and
Romania.
