Overview

Mary Jane Collier brings together essays that address issues such as how culture and discourse are related. It examines how people with varied cultural identities draw their boundaries and create distinctiveness through their communication with one another, and presents timely and relevant research on cultural difference as a contemporary social problem. The contributors to this volume represent a variety of cultural groups, and their discussions reflect a diverse array of perspectives on discourse analysis, ranging from localized, situated interpretations of group members' in-group dialogues to informed analyses of public images and texts. The content of this work demonstrates that research on discourse and culture is relevant to the dynamic global and sociocultural environment.
