Abstract:

Moving across linguistic, professional and national boundaries for work is now commonplace. The concept of a 'job for life' is clearly outdated. Employees regularly move between jobs, countries and even professions during their working lives. However, the complex processes involved in redefining personal, social and professional identities are rarely reflected in current workplace research.

This volume brings together workplace communication scholars from a range of disciplinary areas, each examining the challenges faced when transitioning into a new workplace, team or society, as well as within different professional communities. By analysing the strategies individuals adopt to navigate boundaries (whether these arise because of differences in language, workplace or country), this book demonstrates that transitions are intricately negotiated and constructed in the situated ‘here and now’ of workplace interaction while simultaneously positioned in the wider socioeconomic order.

The print edition of this book is distributed by Oxford University Press in North America under the Edinburgh University Press imprint and ISBN.
