The relationship between language and identity has been investigated in many disciplines such as anthropology, education, linguistics and literature. Language use reveals speaker's’ social identity, and membership. For the language learners, language learning experience reconstruct their identities. There are many theories about language and identity from traditional model (identity being static) and postmodernism model (identity is a site of struggle power). Despite the research interests in language and identity, it seems that scholars seldom have an opportunity to have an academic discussion on this topic. Let’s Talk 2016 will bring the scholars from different disciplines and redefine the role of language in social identity construction.
