Title: Identity in (Inter)action
Subtitle: Introducing Multimodal (Inter)action Analysis
Written By: Sigrid Norris
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?isbn=978-1-934078-27-3
Series Title: Trends in Applied Linguistics [TAL] 4
Description:

In this monograph, the author offers a new way of examining the much
discussed notion of identity through the theoretical and methodological approach
called "multimodal interaction analysis". Moving beyond a traditional discourse
analysis focus on spoken language, this book expands our understanding of
identity construction by looking both at language and its intersection with such
paralinguistic features as gesture, as well as how we use space in interaction.

The author illustrates this new approach through an extended ethnographic
study of two women living in Germany. Examples of their everyday interactions
elucidate how multimodal interaction analysis can be used to extend our
understanding of how identity is produced and negotiated in "context" from a
more holistic point of view.
