This book - co-edited by IATL Director Dr Nicholas Monk and Monash colleagues Mia Lindgren, Sarah McDonald and Sarah Pasfield-Neofitou - examines the notion of identity using a variety of interdisciplinary approaches. It collects current thinking from international scholars spanning philosophy, history, science, cultural studies, media, translation, performance, and marketing. The book is born of the authors’ experience of sharing an IATL interdisciplinary module with their students.
