Identity in L2 Writing

  • Olga Majchrzak
Part of the Second Language Learning and Teaching book series (SLLT)


The main theme of Chapter 3 is identity. The chapter discusses the importance of the notion of identity as well as language identity and transformations of self through language. However, the main aim of this chapter is the representation of identity in writing. For this reason, Ivanič’s idea of writing and identity is presented first; then the concept of voice in general and with respect to L2 writing is discussed. Finally, EFL writer identity in a classroom setting is explored.
