"Identity Trouble" brings together contributions from a wide variety of discourse fields to discuss the rising pressures on traditional understandings of identity. The focus is on failures and uncertainties in people's construction of their identities when faced with social, cultural, organizational or other changes and fluidities. The contributions raise a number of critical questions about the concept of identity and how it may be refigured, and draw on a wide range of empirical studies of identity problems in personal and social life.
