Proceedings of the 4th ESTIDIA Conference | IJCCSEC – Volume 6, Issue 1, 2017  


This special issue of the International Journal of Cross-Cultural Studies and Environmental Communication offers a peer-reviewed selection of thematically representative papers resented at the 4th ESTIDIA Conference hosted by Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, on 29-30 September 2017. The conference, whose title was “Dialogues without Borders: Strategies of Interpersonal and Inter-group Communication”, brought together an international group of junior and established scholars representing a wide range of disciplines and research approaches to dialogic strategies of interpersonal and inter-group communication. One of the major goals of the contributions included in the present issue is to highlight the role of contextspecific communication practices in dealing, from different disciplinary perspectives, with challenging situations emerging in interpersonal and inter-group encounters in 21st century societies, and mainly with the representation of individual and group migration processes, culture-specific perceptions of migrants/migration, as well as online and offline discourses about migrants.

Blog Collaboration


Dear ESTIDIA Members:


ESTIDIA Blog aims to foster a collegial and academic dialogue among our members. So, we invite everyone to collaborate: to become a ‘blogger’ and to engage with other Members.

Whether you a senior blogger or a novice, ESTIDIA Blog is a welcoming space where our members can write about latest trends in the field of linguistics, applied linguistics, communication studies, and rhetoric. It can be about theories, methodologies, pedagogies, and applications.

We also welcome book reviews, reflective pieces, and summaries of your own research, academic innovations, dissertations, and conferences you have attended.

ESTIDIA Blog is also a marketplace where our members can post notices about new publications, academic vacancies, calls for papers and conferences, calls for book chapters, and calls for project participants.

As an academic blog, our audience consists of senior and junior scholars, researchers, doctoral candidates, instructors, undergraduates, university staff, and professionals such as translators/interpreters, and communication practitioners.

We accept articles that range from 500 – 1000 words with a short (catchy) title.

If you have already an article or an announcement you want to submit to our blog, please email the editor Andrea Valente at

We are looking forward to your articles and engaging with you all soon.

Warm wishes,

Cornelia Ilie (ESTIDIA President)
