Abstract:

This book examines how identity is an issue in different second language
learning contexts. It begins with a detailed presentation of what has
become a popular approach to identity in the social sciences (including
applied linguistics) today, one that is inspired in poststructuralist
thought and is associated with the work of authors such as Anthony Giddens,
Zygmunt Bauman, Chris Weedon, Judith Butler and Stuart Hall. 

It then examines how in early SLA research focussing on affective
variables, identity was an issue, lurking in the wings but not coming to
the surface.  Moving to the present, the book then examines in detail and
critiques recent research focussing on identity in three distinct second
language learning contexts.  These contexts are: (1) adult migration, (2)
foreign language classrooms and (3) study abroad programmes. The book
concludes with suggestions for future research focussing on identity in
second language learning.
