Discourses of Identity in Liminal Places and Spaces, Hardback Book

Discourses of Identity in Liminal Places and Spaces Hardback

Edited by Roberta Piazza

Part of the Routledge Studies in Sociolinguistics series


This collection highlights the interplay between language and liminal places and spaces in building distinct narratives of selfhood.

The book uses an interdisciplinary approach to examine linguistic and social phenomena in places shaped by displacement and social inequality.

The book also looks at chronotopes, the Bakhtinian-inspired concept of the interconnectedness of time and space in identity.

The volume demonstrates how studying liminal places and spaces can offer unique insights into how people construct language and selfhood in these spaces, making this key reading for researchers in sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, geography, and linguistic anthropology.
