Sample text

This Westcentric discourse is not geographically restricted to the Western world. Students and researchers based in the underdeveloped and developing societies of Asia (and the Middle East), Africa, Latin (Central and South) America and further afield – the East or the global South – have a role to play as well. Only they are made to depend on Western academic discourse to carry out their daily research and teaching tasks, including getting their works published internationally sometimes (think of the globalization of Thomson’s SSCI and A&HCI and consequent American publications).

The aggregate of these developments, trends and participating agents form what I call cultural discourse studies (CDS). Profoundly concerned with the cultural diversity, dynamic and divisiveness of human discourses that have hitherto been suppressed, obscured or explained away in the mainstream, this new paradigm strives as its mission and objectives to highlight, deconstruct and neutralize ethnocentrism in current discourse and communication scholarship, (re)construct culturally conscious and critical frameworks and pay attention especially to the culturally unfamiliar, mystified or marginalized discourses, and facilitate intercultural mutual learning and cultural–intellectual creativity.

Although this is because of broader Western scholarly dominance, part of the reason here is that these have been concerned more with their respective local issues and agendas, rather than with their interrelations and thus possible mutual and global enlightenment and support. So in this chapter I shall try in particular to explore the shared reasons and conditions and thus common principles and strategies of the Eastern paradigm that will together make up a collective framework for ongoing Asian, African and Latin American centred projects.
