Cultural Discourse Studies Series

A cultural-innovation-seeking platform in discourse and communication studies, the Cultural Discourse Studies Series aims to deconstruct ethnocentrism in the discipline, develop culturally conscious and critical approaches to human discourses, and facilitate multicultural dialogue and debate in favour of research creativity. Ultimately, it is designed to contribute to human cultural coexistence, harmony and prosperity.
