Abstract:

NEW EDITION

'This book is an important contribution to the study of transnational
migrants...Most importantly, it raises provocative questions about the
nature and functioning of multilingual societies and identities and
illustrates the usefulness of life stories as a way of investigating new
migrant communities...offers a beautiful tribute to the author's new
adopted city and an engaging, informative, and thought-provoking study that
will be of interest to a variety of readers interested in migration,
globalization, multilingualism, and identity construction.' - Discourse &
Communication 

Multilingual Identities in a Global City: London Stories is an in-depth
study of the linguistic, national, ethnic, social class and gendered
identities of individuals living in London at the beginning of the
twenty-first century. The book begins with a thorough discussion of key
concepts such as globalization, migration, multiculturalism, identity, the
global city and the history of migration to Britain and London. Through a
detailed examination of four diverse groups - Japanese graduate students,
French foreign-language teachers, Spanish-speaking Latinos and second
generation British Asian university students - it explores the ambivalent
and multi-layered identities of individuals who have crossed geographical
and psychological borders during the course of their lifetimes.
