Identity, the floating signifier
Ken Tann [+]
The University of Sydney
Ken Tann lectures at the University of Sydney on the application of linguistic research to identity issues in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. He adopts an interdisciplinary approach to discourse analysis, and his publications include work on both the English and Japanese languages, particularly in relation to nationalism and identity politics.
This chapter concludes the book by bringing together the various strands of argument from preceding chapters, highlighting the role of context in perpetuating stereotypes as well as evolving them.
