Product Description


“The book, on the whole, is an excellent introduction to discourse and identity, balancing the need for engagement in the field of research and in–depth discussions of the issues with comprehensive coverage of the features and aspects of identities. It achieves this in an elegant way, making the concepts and debates clear and coherent for a wide audience.”  ( Discourse and Communication , 1 October 2013) " is a book that I am happy to recommend to my students, it is clearly written and takes students and interested readers through a journey of some of the significant contributions that discursive identity research has made." (QMiP Bulletin, 2012)


A very fluent, appealing and above all accessible book. The authors have presented the discursive approach to identities in a way that students will find attractive and intelligible. It′s a pleasure to read, and brings some welcome order to a fast–changing intellectual landscape. A real achievement. — Charles Antaki , Professor of Language and Social Psychology, Loughborough University, UK McKinlay and McVittie have triumphed again; this is an illuminated synthesis of work on identities and discourse.  The accessible and engaging style will delight students and new researchers alike, offering neat empirical examples and summaries of contemporary research in the field.  The focus on identity in everyday life offers a particular charm.  This is identity in all its enacted, contested, moment–to–moment magic. — Sally Wiggins , Lecturer in Psychology, University of Strathclyde, UK.
