“Crossing Boundaries in Culture and Communication”, the journal of the Department of Foreign Languages of the Romanian-American University in Bucharest, is a professional publication meant to bring together the preoccupations and contributions of those interested in human communication and cultural phenomena in the global context: foreign language educators, academic researchers, journalists and others, from schools, universities or alternative areas of humanistic approach around this country and abroad.
The 2nd international conference with the same name facilitated the issuing of this journal, by reuniting it topically under the umbrella-theme Journeys from Europe to Other Continents and Back. The articles published here represent a selection of the Conference presentations; they reflect a variety of perspectives and innovative ideas on topics such as linguistics, FLT, literary / Canadian / cultural studies and their related fields, providing opportunities for professional development and research.
The editorial board considers that the personal contributions included in this issue as well as in the next ones, come in support of multilingualism and multiculturalism due to their variety of topics and linguistic diversity. This would be, in fact, the challenge we are faced with: to put forth a journal which, in spite of its heterogeneous blend, should serve the goal of gathering under its covers the results of the pursuits and concerns of those interested in the ongoing development of culture and in the interpersonal communication which have been subject to various mutations as an effect of an ever-changing globalized world.
This unity in diversity should be achieved by connections established within and among a variety of fields which often blend into each other, proving the interdisciplinarity of modern research: education, teaching, literature, media etc. which also allow complementary approaches in linguistics, rhetoric, sociology etc.
The present issue includes four sections: linguistics, translation studies, literary studies and cultural studies. All the contributions published here share their authors’ ideas in what we hope to become a large cross-boundaries “forum” of communication, debate and mutual cultural interests.
As we don’t want to reveal too much right from the beginning, and in the hope that we have stirred your curiosity, we are inviting you to discover the universe the authors have shaped and described, the view upon life that they are imagining, which might be considered, in fact, the overall desideratum of our Journal.
Thanking all contributors, the editorial board welcomes your presence in this volume and invites the interested ones to unravel the various topics which put forward the concerns and the findings of a challenging professional community.
