Discourse as Cultural Struggle

Xu Shi


This book challenges the cultural imbalance in current research traditions, and argues for a culturalist perspective in facilitating better intercultural exchange amidst accelerated processes of globalization. It is the first engagement with discourses in non-mainstream cultures. Covering a wide range of issues in public, professional, media, and intercultural communication, the twelve essays tackle culturally pressing issues by aligning viewpoints from various geo-political contexts.

Keywords: cultural imbalance, research traditions, culturalist perspective, intercultural exchange, mainstream cultures, globalization
