About the Author

Lisa McEntee-Atalianis is Senior Lecturer in Applied Linguistics at Birkbeck, University of London, UK.


A highly original book which brings together a variety of perspectives on the complexity of identity work - and language as a fundamental site of such work. The author takes a creative approach in consolidating a wealth of studies and debates on the topic, not previously found in one volume. An invaluable resource for anyone seeking a better and nuanced understanding of identities. * Lia Litosseliti, Senior Lecturer in Linguistics and Associate Dean for Internationalisation, City, University of London, UK *
This thoroughgoing book covers a great deal of ground in satisfying detail. Beyond an insightful and up-to-date round-up of the usual suspects - ethnicity, religion and gender - the author provides good historical and contemporary contextualisation, delves into clinical and forensic matters, and devotes a chapter to deafness. Highly recommended. * John Edwards, Professor, St Francis Xavier and Dalhousie Universities, Canada *
Drawing on a broad array of both languages and dialects, this highly relevant and informed volume systematically examines how central identity is to understanding language use across a wide range of applied contexts. It is fresh and contemporary - bursting with modern-day examples and case studies of real-world applications of linguistics - and comes at a critical moment both for this diversifying field but also in light of recent global developments. * David Britain, Professor of Modern English Linguistics, University of Bern, Switzerland *
