Two notions “discursive appropriation” and “discursive reinvention” particularly, are presented and postulated as important notions and directions for future research and further attention in the attempt to understand and explain the discursive hybridizations, i.e., the dialectical process as well as the diverse outcomes of glocalization in the discourses of contemporary Cultural China.
