Inequalities in Multicultural Contexts: A Global Perspective/ edited by
Elena Vartanova (Lomonosov Moscow State University), Anna Gladkova
(Lomonosov Moscow State University) and Shi-xu (Hangzhou Normal University).
The book will be submitted to Routledge, and if everything goes well
will be published as part of the Cultural Discourse Studies Series:
The book will discuss digital inequalities minor ethnic and cultural
groups across the world face today – in regard to access, skills, and
benefits from using ICTs, i. e. three levels of the digital divide that
have been previously identified by scholars. Using specific case studies
from different multicultural societies around the world, we will show
how these inequalities affect cross-cultural communication from a
cultural discourse studies perspective, as well as what impact digital
divide can have upon people’s identities, languages and cultures.
We will show in this book that regardless of national specifics and
current peculiarities of communication systems, there are challenges all
multicultural/multi-ethnic societies are facing nowadays under ongoing
digitalization process. The primary aim of the book therefore is to show
how multicultural societies across the globe are developing under the
challenges brought by digitalization (digital exclusion, new forms,
levels and domains of the digital divide, new professional and personal
demands in terms of digital engagement, etc.), and how multicultural
discourses are developing in this new context.
