A changing employment market means frequently crossing boundaries into new organisations, new linguistic environments and new countries. This affects the enactment of professional identity which is necessarily fluid and dynamic, responsive to the continuous crossing of boundaries and the complex interactions this typically entails. This book brings together scholars with diverse views, representing a range of different disciplinary areas in the field and merges interest in workplace discourse and intercultural communication with research on crossing and relational issues.
