This book makes an important contribution to the growing literature on communication and cultural identity. I appreciate the range of theoretical frameworks and the many sites where identity is performed in particular ways. The collection demonstrates methodological diversity and a strong sense of how identity is both a cultural and a personal journey. (Robbin Crabtree, Fairfield University)
[This] book is thought-provoking, and many of its essays are insightful illustrations of communication practices. (Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly)
An important addition to the study of cultural and intercultural communication. The authors provide a rich variety of applied and theoretical sites for understanding the meaningful ways in which communication both reflects and constitutes individual and group human identities. It is particularly useful to see the inclusion of material artifacts as means by which men and women construct identity. (Patricia Covarrubias, University of Montana)
