Who do I want to be?
Questions of identity - individual and collective - confront us at every turn at the end of the twentieth century. Practising Identities is a collection of papers about how identities - gender, bodily, racial, ethnic and national - are practised in the contemporary world. Identities are actively constructed, chosen, created and performed by people in their daily lives; identities are complex, multiple, fragmented and always changing. This book focuses on a variety of identity practices, in a range of different settings, from the gym and the body-piercing studio, to the further education college and the National Health Service. The question of power and the possibilities of creating identities of resistance are to the forefront throughout the book. Drawing on detailed empirical studies and recent social and cultural theory about identity, this book makes an important contribution to current debates about identity, reflexivity, and cultural difference.

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
