Description - Identities in Talk by Charles Antaki

The concept of "identity" attracts some of social science's liveliest and most passionate debate. Theory abounds on matters as disparate as nationhood, ethnicity, gender politics and culture. However, there is less literature on how such identity issues appear in the fine grain of everyday life. This text gathers together, in a collection of chapters drawng on ethnomethodology and conversation analysis, arguments which show that identities are constructed "live" in the exchange of talk. By closely examining tapes and transcripts of real social interactions from a wide range of situations, this volume examines how it is that a person can be ascribed to a category and what features about that category are consequential for the interaction.

Author Biography - Charles Antaki

Charles Antaki is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Lancaster. He is editor of Analyzing Everyday Explanation (SAGE, 1988). My primary interests, theoretical and empirical, are in self and identities, including personal and social identity and cultural variations in self-conception and individuality. I have participated in contemporary theoretical and methodological debates surrounding the concept of self and subjectivity and I am concerned to develop empirical approaches to understanding these complex issues. Further, related interests are in social groups, especially youth culture and subcultures; cross-cultural psychology and psychological anthropology; poststructuralism; and Arab identities. I also have an interest in language use, especially conversation and discourse analysis.
