Narrative mediatisation of the “Chinese Dream” in Chinese and American media
This paper examines how the political slogan of the “Chinese Dream”, coined and promoted by China’s president, Xi Jinping, was mediatised in the Chinese and the American media. Applying theoretical frameworks in narrative studies and concepts in mediated discourse analysis, it investigates how elements such as context, time, and space played a vital part in the construal and interpretation of the “Chinese Dream” in a nexus of media practices; as such differing characteristics of mediatisation in the Chinese and the American media emerged. These mediatising mechanisms demonstrate a constant “othering” practice of the American media in mediatising the slogan, and the “blind-to-others” practice of the Chinese media. It is suggested the nexus of the mediatising practice be changed by enhancing the mutual understanding between the two cultural systems.
