Read. Write. Oxford.
Identity: A Reader for Writers focuses on the essential topic of identity as it relates to culture, rhetoric, and the multiple modes of expression that are increasingly common in today's multilingual society. Each chapter in this reader asks students foundational questions about identity. These questions include: Where are you from? Where did you go to school? What do you do for work? And whom do you love? While these questions appear easy to answer, students will learn as they work through the readings that their answers are linked to meaningful themes including language, nationality, labor, education, personal relationships, and privacy.
Developed for the freshman composition course, Identity: A Reader for Writers includes an interdisciplinary mix of public, academic, and scientific reading selections, providing students with the rhetorical knowledge and compositional skills required to participate effectively in discussions about critical literacy, cultural studies, and the writing process.
Identity: A Reader for Writers is part of a series of brief single-topic readers from Oxford University Press designed for today's college writing courses. Each reader in this series approaches a topic of contemporary conversation from multiple perspectives.
