Extended conflict situations in Northern Ireland or South Africa, the local impacts of the rise of multinational corporations, and the less obvious but equally persistent conflicts in workplaces, households and academic fields are all crucibles for the forging of identities. In this volume, in-depth research is brought to bear on enduring struggles and the practices of identity within those struggles. Grounded in a theory of practice, nine ethnographers address such topics as the politically sexualized transformation of identities of women political prisoners in Northern Ireland; the changing character of political activism across generations in a Guatemala Mayan family; the cultural forms that mediate the struggles between the state and grassroots activists in New York.
