This book provides a broad survey of historical and contemporary treatments of identity in various branches of Applied Linguistics, identifying common themes and areas for future research. The volume explores theoretical and methodological approaches and features detailed empirical accounts and case studies. The book not only presents current debates in Applied Linguistics and related fields but also the theoretical and practical implications of studying identity from various perspectives and disciplinary approaches. It also offers researchers a new approach to the study of identity: `The Dynamic Integrated Systems Approach'. As such Identity in Applied Linguistics Research is an ideal text for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, and academics and practitioners working on issues of identity.

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 *
