Research & Reference

  1. Now Available: Researching Identity and Interculturality

    "This volume makes a valuable contribution to developing research in interculturality by going beyond description of research method to engage critically with the methodical consequences of the complex constructs of identity, culture and interculturality that confront any researcher in the field. The volume works through important new possibilities for developing accounts of identity in intercultural contexts that will enrich scholarship in the field both conceptually and methodologically."Tony Liddicoat, Professor in Applied Linguistics, School of Communication, International Studies and Languages, University of South Australia 

    Researching Identity and Interculturality focuses on advances in research methodology in an interdisciplinary field framed by discourses of identity and interculturality. It includes a range of qualitative studies: studies of interaction, narrative studies, conversation analysis, ethnographic studies, postcolonial studies and critical discourse studies, and emphasizes the role of discourse and power in all studies of identity and interculturality.

    Praise for this book

    "Canagarajah has done it again. Just when you may have thought it was safe to retreat to the confines of disciplinary discipline and conceptual conformity, he produces a work that necessitates a serious re-examination and re-appraisal of what language study is, or should be, about. This masterful book will be essential reading for anyone seeking answers to the question: How do we do linguistics in a globalized world?"

    - Alan Firth, Newcastle University, UK
