Abstract

The successes of the past seven rounds of the International Conference on Multicultural Discourses held in China, Brazil, the Netherlands, and Romania, respectively, have consolidated the position of Cultural Discourse Studies in the social sciences. Mankind is witnessing yet again the centennial moment of global transformation and the world is ridden with grave challenges and great opportunities. To answer to these uncertain winds of change, scholars from diverse fields such as communication, media, language, literature, culture, history, international relations, etc. are invited to offer their insights during the 8th International Conference on Multicultural Discourses.
