  • Civilizational Spread and Ethnic Fusion: Analysis of the Impact of
           Bureaucratization of Native Officers in Guizhou Region During Ming and
           Qing Dynasties

    • Authors: Mengmei JIANG, Chengbin LUAN
      Abstract: Bureaucratization of native officers is a major event in the history of Guizhou region, which went through the Ming and Qing dynasties. In fact, this process is also a province establishing process during which the civilizations of central plains and minority groups interacted and fused together, and the territory of Guizhou province was gradually settled. Bureaucratization of native officers in Guizhou is a systematic project which replaced the economic bases under different social systems in Guizhou with the advanced economic production relations under feudal landlord system in central plains using politics and military as the intervention precursor, economy and commerce as the penetration means, and cultural and educational integration as the auxiliary strategy. Bureaucratization of native officers significantly impacted Guizhou region’s politics, ethnology, culture, economy and ecology. The purpose of this powerful top-down, center-periphery spread and dissemination of Han civilization to Guizhou region is the assimilation of civilization and the construction of a unified multi-ethnic country. It is exactly during the dynamic exchange, struggle and fusion between the Han civilization, which is representative of central dynasty, and Guizhou’s local civilization that the unity in diversity ethnic structure is able to be achieved, and a uniform centripetal force is able to be formed.

    • Authors: Chengbin LUAN

  • Media as Mediator: Intertextual Narrative in Digital and Performative

    • Authors: Artemis Susan Preeshl
      Abstract: “Media as Mediator” tells a tale in two mediums: classical South Indian and Western dance in the seven-dance suite, Liquid Gems, and the fiction Tamil film, Pancha Ratna Media as Mediator was an intervisual presentation that explored sacred characters in a contemporary story in two- and three-dimensions. Intervisuality compares and interprets visual images in a cultural context. This concept enhanced contemporary approaches to classical Hindu myths in Liquid Gems and Pancha Ratna. Media sources brought classical Bharatanatyam dance and Bollywood-style songs into conversation with Western dance forms in the dance suite, Liquid Gems, and the Tamil fiction film, Pancha Ratna. The story focuses on women’s issues in diverse marriage arrangements, dowry and murder/suicide. Contemporary media reports influenced the way in which sacred archetypes inform their modern counterparts in the narrowcast narrative.

  • Translation as Rewriting: A Descriptive Study of Wang Jizhen’s Two
           Adapted Translations of Hongloumeng

    • Authors: Jin QIU, Daodan Qu, Fenggang Du
      Abstract: Applying André Lefevere’s theory of rewriting to a descriptive study of the two adapted translations of Hongloumeng by Wang Jizhen published respectively in 1929 and 1958, this paper attempts to investigate the effects the dominant ideology and poetics in a given society at a given time have on the translator’s choice of strategies in the translation process. A diachronic study of the two adapted versions of Hongloumeng as rewritings shows that most of the time the translator has to submissively adapt to the ideological and poetical power structures at different periods of time, yet it is possible for the translator to actively subvert the constraints. However, a comparison of Wang’s translations with the two complete versions of Hongloumeng indicates that ideologically a translation is first, if not foremost constrained by the dominant ideology of the society where it is initiated and published before it is read, rather than that of the receiving society only. Moreover, when poetical factors are involved, the influence from a source culture where the original enjoys a prestigious status often cannot be ignored. Wang’s rewritings of Hongloumeng also confirm the possibility for translators to go against the conditioning factors, although not so much on the ideological level as on the poetical level.

  • Intercultural Adaptation of Chinese Guest Teachers in the U.S.

    • Authors: Jinan Jia
      Abstract: As one of the Chinese Guest Teachers Program during 2010-2011, I got a real feel for the serious problem―intercultural adaptation, which most Chinese guest teachers are facing. If we do not pay enough attention to the problem and take action in time, these problems may cause some other unfavorable results such as an ineffective in Chinese language teaching or a massive pressure of the Chinese guest teachers themselves.
      This thesis researches the relationship between social-cultural adaptation and psychological adaptation with two main factors, Chinese guest teachers’ intercultural training and length of stay in U.S., then verifies intercultural adaptation model theory; the thesis also shows the social-cultural adaptation and psychological adjustment condition of Chinese guest teachers is positively correlated with the length of stay in U.S.. Moreover, the author arrives at the conclusions on the basis of research results, as well as indications for Hanban to improve intercultural adaptation training for Chinese guest teachers.

  • Cross-Cultural Adaptation of Foreign Students in Chinese University: Based
           on Network of Social Support

    • Authors: Chaoping LUO, Ning ZHOU, Qiong ZHAI, Zhenglin CAO
      Abstract: With the expansion of globalization and the rapid development of China’s economy, the number of international students that come to China to study is increasing. The university department have not emphasized on foreign students’ cross-cultural adaptation, but living service facilities, habits, religious and so on, because of traditional education. On the basis of analysis of research literature on foreign students’ cross-cultural adaptation, we have found that foreign students’ cross-cultural adaptation is influenced mainly by social networks. According to the questionnaire on the Southwest University’s foreign students, we have found that the foreign students had been stunted to integrate into the life of local students and public by the university, which built special apartments and management system for foreign students. Therefore, we suggest that the university department offer the same living and studying environment for Chinese and foreign students so that foreign students may join in Chinese society well.

  • Discourse Monopoly: The Communication Practice of Online Populism

    • Authors: Long CHEN
      Abstract: With different strategies such as labeling, spreading rumors, vituperating, misleading, human flesh searching and restraining free speech, discourse domination becomes a kind of communication practice of online populism to control the public opinion. As a kind of online populism, discourse domination is mainly caused by the non-transparency and unavailability of information and presently existing unfairness, all of which breed the online populism. Hence the discourse domination can be greatly suppressive in the mentioned non-transparency. The online populism seeks the pragmatic power through various rivals in the field of Internet to mislead the mass to criticize the opponents. With its growing harm to our society, discourse domination must be scientifically regulated according to the crisis response system of the government.

  • Constructing Intercultural Communicative Competence Framework for English

    • Authors: Yunlong HUANG
      Abstract: Intercultural communicative competence (ICC) is an area of research that has tremendous pragmatic potential. Many teachers and English learners have noticed that English education is both instrumental and humanistic in nature. Thus, the ultimate goal of English teaching is intended to cultivate the intercultural communicative competence. This goal has gathered a widespread attention. Thus, to study intercultural communicative competence is of great significance in the field of intercultural communication. However, the research on this competence is limited. Thus, an effective training framework is yet to be constructed. There is no universally agreed-upon definition of intercultural communicative competence. Therefore, the present review is intended to introduce the framework of intercultural communicative competence in College English. In this review, we will pay attention to what intercultural communicative competence is and how to construct intercultural communicative competence framework for English learners, which may be useful for English learners to communicate more effectively with people from other cultures.

    • Authors: Lihua YANG
      Abstract: With the rapid development of tourism industry in China, it is urgent to translate tourist text from Chinese into English. Translation is not a simple mechanic linguistic transference, but involves complex cross-cultural communication. English and Chinese have different cultures, so translator must pay attention to the cultural differences between the two languages for successful cross-cultural communication. A good tourist text will arouse potential readers’ interest in the scenic spots, which will help both the development of Chinese tourist industry, and the output of Chinese culture and the enrichment of the target culture. The paper makes an analysis of cultural differences between east and west from the aspect of thinking mode, historical background, and religion and speech rhetoric. Then, it studies the function of tourism text as well as some translation principles and methods, including rewriting, adding and cutting. In the conclusion, the author emphasizes that translators should not only lay solid linguistic foundation, but also pay attention to the cultural factors in both English and Chinese for the successful cross-cultural communication.

  • The Linguistic Variants of Allah Expressions in Jordanian Arabic

    • Authors: Abdullah A. Jaradat
      Abstract: This paper is bifocal. Its first purpose is to shed some light on the widespread use of Allah expressions in Jordanian Arabic as well as other dialects of Arabic. These are expressions that are used repeatedly by Muslims on a daily manner in different venues reflecting their belief that Allah alone is the One who has influence over every aspect of their lives. The second purpose is to draw the attention to some expressions containing the word Allah. In some of these expressions, the word Allah has disappeared as a result of being blended into other particles as in the case of jalla meaning “let” and jaallah meaning “barley”. However, in other expression, the word Allah is still witnessed but used in totally new meanings as in expressing astonishment and seeking protection and guidance.

  • Cultural Specification of Face

    • Authors: Wei LI
      Abstract: Face is a universal phenomenon but has cultural specification. As a cultural phenomenon, face has always been a focus in social interactions. Brown and Levinson’s face theory to some extent is validated in western culture. Chinese face has its connotation; and modesty is even more important. In making sense of linguistic interactions concerning face, it is sensible to combine culture influence with face theory.
