Expressing Voice through Language: Self, Nation, Society

We are delighted to present the first issue of Multilingual Discourses, the critical journal of the graduate students of the Department of Modern Languages and Cultural Studies at the University of Alberta.

This issue offers insight into current research being conducted by graduate students associated with studies of literature, language, politics, and cultural studies within our department and beyond. The issue comes to you as a joint effort of students and faculty members, who volunteered time and thought as contributors, reviewers, and editors.

We are excited to develop a platform for the interdisciplinary thought exchange and possibility of sharing excellent graduate work.

Looking forward to many issues to come,

Viktoriya Yakovlyeva
