Identity Research in Intercultural Communication features an invaluable collection of qualitative, critical, and transnational scholarship that not only maps the landscape of cultural identity research but also offers new insights, tools, and directions for identity theorizing. This volume advances and broadens the important study of identity from an array of perspectives and—as a dedication to John T. Warren and his work—bridges identity research, performance, and critical communication pedagogy.

Identity has been a historically central guiding construct in intercultural communication studies across multiple perspectives. This edited volume does an excellent job of representing its rich history while engaging deeply and creatively with state-of-the-art issues in the study of identity. The contributions are from outstanding scholars, whose craft is transforming how we understand the performance of identity, culture, and difference in exciting new ways, and their treatment of identity in terms of dialogue, difference, liminality, intersectionality, and politics is going to provide further stimulus and energy to intercultural communication studies in general. I expect this volume to become a must-have addition to any intercultural communication scholar’s library.
