Negotiating National Identity Abroad: The Experiences of Mainland Chinese Students in the United States

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



Abstract:

How do sojourners experience and deal with discussing their home country with people from a different country? How is nationalism evoked within these discussions? This study takes a symbolic interactionist approach to interactions between Mainland Chinese and American individuals in order to better understand how subjective meanings related to nation, identity, duty and status are employed and created within these interactions. Special attention is paid to those interactions which involve discussion of sensitive topics related to the subject’s home country. This study identifies four modes in which people commonly experience and deal with cross-national interaction. Also discussed are how personal background and situational factors affect the subject’s mode of experience.
