  • Once a Muslim Always a Muslim: The Rise and Fall of the Muslim American
           Protagonist in Ayad Akhtar’s Disgraced

    • Abstract: The post 9/11 atmosphere of terror made Muslim Americans highly visible in the U.S.and they have been viewed as potential terrorist suspects. Therefore, in the light of these circumstances, Ayad Akhtar’s Play Disgraced is most apropos to be revisited as his works focus on the existence of Muslims in America as a post-colonial contact zone. In fact, the play puts the interracial marriage of Amir, and his wife Emily, a White American woman on center stage and makes it fall down before our eyes. Despite the fact that Amir’s credentials qualify him to be a model minority citizen, and reach the American Dream, he falls out of grace as soon as he appears in court to show support as a pro bono lawyer to a Muslim Imam who is tried for raising fund for a mosque in the Middle East. This paper belabors the reasons that led to the reversal of the hero’s fortune from prosperity to misery in the wake of the collapse of New York twin towers.

  • Explicitation of Conjunctions in Two English Translations of Luoyang
           Jialan Ji

    • Abstract: The translation of Chinese classics is vital to promoting Chinese culture, gaining increasing attention from the academic community in recent years. This study selected Luoyang Jialan Ji, a representative of Chinese classics, as the research data. The study examines conjunctions in different texts by constructing comparable and parallel corpora of the source text and two English translations. The findings indicate that the frequency of conjunctions in the two English versions is higher than that in the Chinese version, which proves a tendency of explicitation in the translation process from Chinese to English. Notably, there are some differences between the two English versions in the use of conjunctions, especially conditional and causal conjunctions, which reveals the different styles of translators. Furthermore, the paper summarizes translation methods of conjunctions, offering insights into the translation practice of Chinese classics.

  • Miscommunication in Stillwater: The Interplay of Social Identities,
           Language Barriers, and Emotional Dynamics

    • Abstract: This paper analyses Stillwater’s (2021) dialogue and action lines to demonstrate how miscommunication, specifically during heightened emotional instances, between Bill, the protagonist, and other characters is due to language barriers and emotional dynamics related to ethnic diversity. The study reveals that language difficulties hinder effective communication between Bill, an out-group member, and French residents, the in-group. Consequently, his limited language skills not only mark him as an outsider by challenging his efforts to integrate into the French culture, but also prove that language is a marker of group identity, influencing emotions, behavior, and interaction. In addition, the study demonstrates that the cultural disparities Bill encounters socially define and categorize him as an “out-group” member (American) from the perspective of the “in-group” (French), thus elucidating out-group biases and discrimination. These findings emphasize the role of language in reflecting linguistic and cultural nuances in intergroup interactions in the screenplay Stillwater.

  • A News Media Representation on Disability and Information Accessibility in
           China from the Perspective of Critical Discourse Analysis

    • Abstract: Based on critical discourse analysis, this paper takes thirty news articles related to disability and information accessibility from three Chinese news media as its research object to explore themes that describe how Chinese news media reflects and constitutes its understanding of disability and information accessibility. By doing this, it intends to reveal the themes of those articles and identify potential prejudices, illusions, and stereotypes that may influence the disability. This paper aims to address the following two questions: 1) What content exists in mainstream Chinese news media concerning disability and information accessibility' 2) What themes do these discourses present regarding disability and information accessibility' The results show that 1) The content of thirty news articles includes introductions, evaluations and advice of apps related to information accessibility, activities promoting information accessibility, audiovisual works with information accessibility, and official policies regarding information accessibility; 2) Five key themes are found in these discourses, which are discourses of problem-solving, criticism, awareness as advocacy, self-congratulations or overly optimistic judgments and a tendency of elderly-oriented over disability. Through the analysis of these themes, this paper concludes with implications to advance the development of information accessibility for disability.

  • A Contrastive Analysis of English and Chinese Proverbs

    • Abstract: This paper will analyze the similarities and differences between English and Chinese proverbs, which have the same origin and linguistic characteristics, both of which come from civil life, myths and legends, literature and foreign languages, with conciseness and vivid image of their characters. But, due to their performances in different geographical, historical, religious and cultural values, they have their own characteristics. However, as the world’s cultural exchanges, the boundaries of countries and nationalities gradually break, English and Chinese proverbs have mutual penetrated and melted with each other. It is based on the full understanding of the importance of proverbs that the paper makes the contrastive analysis of English and Chinese proverbs, through which we can not only understand them better but also get to know them deeper of their differences and similarities.

  • Repair Strategies in Chinese EFL Learners’ Story-Telling
           Conversation

    • Abstract: This study investigates the repair strategies employed by English as foreign language of Chinese learners in response to communication breakdowns, with a particular focus on their role in facilitating the progressivity of storytelling conversations. The examination delves into specific repair strategies, including self-initiated repair and repetition strategies, to shed light on their utilization and effectiveness. The findings of the investigation reveal that among the array of repair strategies utilized, English as foreign language of Chinese learners demonstrate a pronounced tendency to rely on self-initiated repairs. Notably, participants in the study primarily addressed issues related to pronouns and verb tense, with a specific emphasis on addressing tense inconsistencies, word order discrepancies, and grammatical errors. This phenomenon underscores the concerted efforts made by Chinese learners to enhance the clarity, coherence, and fluency of their communicative endeavors. Furthermore, the prevalence of self-initiated repairs exemplifies the learners’ dedication to surmounting linguistic challenges, fostering mutual understanding, and navigating the complexities inherent in interactive discourse. Such endeavors not only signify their commitment to linguistic improvement but also underscore their proactive engagement in fostering effective communication in intercultural contexts.

  • Anthropocentric Disturbance and Devastation in Edward Albee’s The
           Goat

    • Abstract: Edward Albee is one of the most prestigious contemporary American playwrights whose works tend to be engrossing for their avant garde expressions of the postmodern plight. Compared with his other works, The Goat or Who is Sylvia (2002), premiering at the turn of the millennium, pays relatively more attention to human-non-human relationship instead of interactions within the human community. Given the inadequacy of interdisciplinary studies on the play, this paper takes the philosophy of ecological ethics as the theoretical framework and juxtaposes Martin’s disturbance and Stevie’s devastation to nature, especially to the innocent goat, which share the same essence of anthropocentric exploitation, and which can lead to tragic consequences both for nature and for human-beings. Hopefully, this study can not only shed some light on the contemporary crisis of the coexistence between nature and humanity, but provide some reference for subsequent scholars to conduct more diversified cross-field studies of Albee.

  • Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s Evolution of Community Thought: From The
           Yellow Wallpaper to Herland

    • Abstract: Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a prominent American novelist and feminist, well-known for her works The Yellow Wallpaper and Herland, which have drawn considerable attention from scholars at home and abroad and aroused wide discussion since their publication. In most cases, the former was regarded as a classic of gender politics and the latter, a feminist utopia. Through the detailed analysis of the two works, it can be found that Gilman has interwoven the spirit of community into the two works, considering it as the right path to gaining women’s equality and freedom. In The Yellow Wallpaper, Gilman just implicitly puts forward women alliance as a potential way to liberate women; while in Herland, Gilman describes the harmony between people (women) and the surroundings, between people (women) and people (men), which demonstrates that Gilman is more resolute and more confident in community and cooperation. In the meanwhile, from the two works, it can be found that Gilman’s thought on community is changing and more and more progressive and that the forming of community is a more effective way to contribute to personal growth and development.

  • Framing Narratives in the Translation of Chinese Political Discourse: Case
           Examples from The Governance of China

    • Abstract: The English translation of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China showcases advanced translation practices within Chinese political discourse, crucial for facilitating cross-cultural communication. As a seminal work of 21st-century Marxism and a primary text of Chinese political thought, it represents the principles of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. This paper conducts a detailed textual analysis to examine how four key narrative framing strategies in the translation of Chinese political discourse shape and communicate narratives across cultural boundaries. Drawing on Baker’s (2018) pioneering work in social narrative theory, this study illustrates how translators not only convey but also actively shape narratives. The findings reveal distinct employment of these strategies, coupled with diverse translation methods, to accurately convey the original narrative, thereby enhancing China’s international communication. This research extends the scope of narrative studies and introduces a novel theoretical lens to the translation of Chinese political discourse. By integrating narrative theory with translation studies, it uncovers new dimensions and paradigms for the translation and interpretation of political discourse, offering critical insights for achieving effective cross-cultural communication in this domain.
