Discourses on Culture

Discourses on Culture is a semi-annual scholarly journal. The journal explores and develops the ideas of ‘interculturality’ and ‘interdisciplinarity’ insofar as these constructs are relevant to scholarship. Content published in the journal crosses disciplinary boundaries and often represents the collaborative efforts of authors from disparate backgrounds in Humanities and Social Sciences. The journal’s editors welcome academic discussions which bridge boundaries traditionally separating scholars from the disciplines of applied linguistics, literature and organisation and management studies. Diverse approaches to addressing theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues facilitate plurality in intellectual exchange.
To enrich possibilities for cross-disciplinary synergy, we publish thematic issues which offer scholars, students and trainers the possibility to broaden their conceptual and practical approaches to a wide variety of topics and establish an inclusive and participatory academic environment.
