Foreigners’ Archive: Contemporary China in the Blogs of American Expatriates

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



Abstract:

This study scrutinizes China blogs written by American expatriates to understand the discursive processes through which the American bloggers narrate their (mis)conceptions of the Chinese realities. The data revealed that the bloggers used metaphors to convey their perceptions of contemporary China, which echo the conventional Western knowledge of the county. Additionally, the bloggers are concerned with the Chinese censorship of the Internet and give little attention to the challenge voiced by nationalistic Chinese readers
