What is identity? Why are we interested in identity, in our everyday lives and in the social sciences? This text explores personal, social and cultural identities, drawing on examples of gendered, ethnic, aged and work identities, as well as those linked to place and nation. Taking an interdisciplinary approach it maps out contemporary debates about identity within sociology, cultural and media studies, social psycology and political science. Each chapter addresses the different way in which theories about identity have sought to resolve the tension between seeing identity as fixed and stable on the one hand, and fluid and changing on the other.

Identity matters, but it matters in different ways at different times. Identity is a buzz word that we often hear about in all sorts of contexts, ranging from the concern with the self expressed through therapy, to identity crises that operate on the global arena, especially post 9/11.
