Title: A Cultural Approach to Discourse
Written By: Odette Ambouroue
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403943346
Description:

Drawing on wide cultural knowledge and experience, Shi-xu critiques
universalism in discourse studies in terms of its adherence to the western
intellectual model, its whiteness and cultural singularity. In this book he
offers a more culturally pluralist approach that advocates the construction
of theory and use of methodology from an innovative position in-between
Eastern and Western cultures. He provides a set of practical discourse
research strategies,illustrated by a set of culturally wide ranging texts,
to send out a call to discourse analysts who want to look beyond their own
intellectual traditions towards a culturally- based discourse analysis
relevant to current global realities.
