- key issues for researchers doing language and identity studies
- categories and dimensions of identity
- identity in language learning contexts and among language learners
- future directions for language and identity studies in applied linguistics
Written by specialists from around the world, each chapter will introduce a topic in language and identity studies, provide a concise and critical survey, in which the importance and relevance to applied linguists is explained and include further reading.
