Abstract [en]

This is a largely theoretical reflection on cross-cultural communications online, which focuses in particular on how social media have changed society, and what direction discourse studies could take to engage these new platforms. The global communication landscape has been fundamentally transformed and shifted the ways in which identities and communities play out. In order to understand how best to investigate this the paper considers some of the challenges for a discourse approach to multicultural communication on social media.
