Parody and Resistance on the Chinese Internet

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper uses Mikhail Bakhtin and other theorists to analyze online parody (called egao in Chinese) and related cultural phenomena on the Chinese Internet that mock Chinese authorities. Materials drawn upon in this essay include specific cases, media reports, online discussions and official responses. I argue that Internet parody provides limited opportunities for netizens to comment on and criticize social, political and cultural issues in China. As a form of carnival, the Internet temporarily suspends power hierarchies and celebrates common people’s laughter as a resisting strategy against the established order and hypocritical official culture in China.
