Meeting Description:

The study of identity and its production is far from a straightforward
endeavor. In multilingual societies, the situation is arguably even
more complex since multiple languages and language varieties offer
speakers a wider range of resources to dedicate to the process of
identity performance and construction, making the challenges for
identity researchers ever more daunting. Recognizing that no single
approach is adequate for analyzing identity in all its dimensions, the
Digital Intangible Heritage in Asia (DIHA) research group in NTU
firmly believes that the strengths of various research traditions -
quantitative and qualitative, experimental and ethnographic - must be
encouraged to cross-pollinate. Through this workshop, we aim to
achieve just this sort of cross-pollination, bringing together
sociocultural linguistics experts from psychology, linguistics,
sociology, and interactive media design to produce a new and creative
synergy across disciplines that can help us to come to a better
understanding of how identities emerge in multilingual settings such
as Singapore.
