Illusion vs. Disillusion: How Chinese Viewers Articulate the Meaning of “House of Cards”

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



Abstract:

Using Stuart Hall’s articulation concept, this paper examines comments posted on the website of “House of Cards” on Sohu Video, a Chinese online streaming service, to see how viewers in mainland China articulate the meaning of the show. The analysis reveals three themes. Some viewers extoll the show as a demonstration of a superb, much better political system featuring democracy, others regard it as proof that American political system is just as dark and evil as the one in China. A third theme expresses people’s discontent over the lack of freedom of speech in China as the show offers a great example of how a dicey and outspoken show like it is not possible to be created in China. The study argues that through examination of articulation, researchers can gain more insight into the tension and struggle in a fast changing Chinese society.
