This practical yet cutting-edge Handbook includes both established and innovative methods for studying identity in management, organisations, and cognate fields. Incorporating a breadth of narrative, visual, ethnographic and embodied methods, as well as ways for analysing naturally occurring data, this Handbook offers exciting new interdisciplinary perspectives on the study of identity.

Notions of identity have gained much momentum in organisation and management studies over the past 20 years, however, identity scholars tend to rely on a limited set of methods in their research. Looking beyond narrow disciplinary boundaries, the Handbook draws ideas from management studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and the Arts. With cutting-edge methods on the various facets and dynamics of identity, it is integral reading for the future progress of reflexive and dialogical social constructions for studying identity.

This refreshing Handbook will be valuable to scholars and students from a variety of disciplines including business and management, psychology and sociology, but with a common interest in studying identity in and around organisations. With consistent practical methodology, consultants, facilitators and management practitioners, who aim to develop identities among individuals, groups, and organisations will also benefit widely from this.
Critical Acclaim
‘The editors have brought together experienced early career researchers from the social sciences, arts and humanities creating an excellent compilation of novel and engaging qualitative methods for studying identity in organisations. Chapters cover a range of methods offering new insights and providing sufficient detail to enable application.’
– Mark N.K Saunders, University of Birmingham, UK

‘This Handbook is highly recommended to all Identity researchers. Empirically researching Identity has traditionally been a swampy challenge. Readers will be inspired and spoilt for choice of intellectually well-grounded and well-guided distinct, creative and appealing approaches to data generation and analysis that have been drawn from across disciplines and are supported by practical illustrations of the method-in-use. The methods discussed facilitate empirical inquiry while at the same time enabling theory building.’
– Kate Black, Northumbria University, the UK
