Understanding the complexities of nomadic identities
This e-book seeks to understand identity – namely something that is in a constant flux, that moves beyond and across single locations and that poses new challenges for researchers and practitioners of workplace diversity. Nomadic identities are understood as the sense of self of those moving individuals who inhabit the ‘in-between’ permanently and might not even conceive themselves in majority-perspective dichotomies such as ‘bi-national’ or ‘bi-cultural’. The term ‘nomadic’ is used broadly as referring to all who are born, placed or place themselves into a state of expatriation, migration or transculturality. ‘Movement’ is understood either literally, as spatial movement of the individual studied, or figuratively, as the fluidity and multi-spatial character of those categories of social identity with which an individual chooses to identify. The papers in this e-issue explore the intersections between nomadic individuals’ sense of self and wider social discourses, categories of thought, structures, practices and institutions, focusing on related inequalities.
