About this product
- DescriptionThe book Identity Issues: Literary and Linguistic Landscapes is a collection of essays, set out to explore the tion of identity as a constantly relevant, very complex, multi-faceted phemen. 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 t only aimed towards literary scholars studying modern Anglo-American literature, r only at sociolinguists interested in language identity, but at 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, and 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, the UK, Canada, Japan, Norway, and Romania.
