Description:
The concept of identity has been described in several different ways and been
at the centre of lively debates across time and milieus. As a socially and
historically constructed concept, identity has been increasingly dealt with as
a feature that is actively accomplished in discourse, reflecting on the issues
of power, value systems, and ideology that are inextricably linked to social
and cultural identity, as well as on the extent to which the interaction
between agency and social structure is defined by the context in which
individuals find themselves. In our constantly changing world, different
institutions (educational, business, legal, medical, media, etc.) of the
modern day are now helping individuals 'to get things done' in
identity-marking schemes, tying in with mechanisms of social life where
institutional and complementary professional identities on their part are
dynamically constructed, maintained and negotiated in discourse contexts of
interpersonal communication.
In order to grasp such mechanisms, new conceptual perspectives and
methodological approaches are required for the study of institutional identity
as a matter of social interaction and (inter)culturally-mediated process. In
this special issue, then, focus is on the ways in which different types of
institutions transmit and (re)produce their own discourses through language
use and guide the communication activities and practices to predictable
outcomes, whilst also foregrounding the flow of social power relations,
ideologies, and values embedded within them.

We therefore invite original papers that explore language through the
processes and domains of institutional identity construction using a range of
theoretical and methodological approaches which include, but are not limited
to, discourse (textual) and (critical) discourse and genre analyses,
conversation analysis, corpus-based discourse analysis, interactional
sociolinguistics, ethnography and communication analyses, multimodal discourse
analysis, mediated discourse analysis, and translation. By presenting research
from a variety of theories, data and methods, we aim to bring together
academics, researchers, and practitioners to exchange new ideas and discuss
the challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the field.
