Cultural Discourse Studies Series

About the Series

A cultural-innovation-seeking platform in discourse and communication studies, the Cultural Discourse Studies Series proceeds from the notion of human communication as consisting in culturally diversified and competing discourses and aims to deconstruct disciplinary ethnocentrism on the one hand and develop culturally conscious and critical approaches to human communication on the other hand. Ultimately, the series is dedicated to the scholarly cause of enhancing cultural coexistence, harmony and prosperity.
