Abstract:

This volume explores the complexities and challenges of linguistic identity construction across a range of online and offline contexts. Focussing on 'clusivity' as an overarching aspect, its contributions are situated in the social constructivist paradigm and offer a multifaceted operationalisation of the linguistic processes of identity construction. Thus, the studies address three major strands of human identity, each of which can be thought of as an aggregative abstraction with its own complexities: personal identity, group identity and collective identity. The contributions pay special attention to the interplay between the public and private dimensions of the interactions and possible audiences, as well as the potential impact of social and technical affordances of different communicative settings and different modes of identity construction online and offline. The volume is particularly aimed at scholars of linguistics, but also of neighbouring disciplines concerned with the complex notion of identity.
