This volume draws on issues and cases from more than 20 countries to provide empirical evidence and theoretical insights into why discourse matters. Covering a wide range of concepts and topical issues, contributors from media studies, journalism, and linguistics address the following key questions: Why and how does discourse matter pertaining to identity in a mediatized world? Who makes discourse and identity matter, for what reason, in what way, and with what consequences?
The volume provokes a new proposition that it is necessary to go beyond the safe havens of disciplinary strongholds with familiar terminology, methodology, and questions to address future inquiries into discourse and identity from a combination of linguistics and journalistic media studies.

"It is heartening to come upon a volume for which the chapter authors not only represent multiple countries - but to as well have a preponderance of Africa-connected authors. Because I believe that the twenty-second century will be Africa's, I see this ambitious collection as startlingly prescient. The co-editors have brought together a wide-ranging group of writings in this impressive volume." (Anne Cooper-Chen, Professor Emerita, Ohio University)
"The editors are right to focus on the fact that identity is a major reason why discourse matters. What is certainly needed is for linguists, cultural analysts, sociologists, psychologists, and other scholars to provide detailed descriptions and to raise questions. The present book offers an extraordinarily diverse array of such studies." (From the Preface by Paul Chilton)
