Abstract: By examining the domestic discussions and debates over the China threat theory among Chinese foreign policy elites, this article seeks to trace the Chinese foreign policy elites? evolving conceptualizations of the nature of power and of China?s national interests, which in turn led to dramatic changes in China?s foreign policy in the past decade. As Chinese economy keeps growing rapidly, there have been alarms that a rising China will become increasingly aggressive and seek to rewrite the East Asian security order on its own terms. The China threat theory was particularly loud in the air around the mid-1990s and is still alive in Washington D.C. and Tokyo. Much has been done on other states??the U.S., Japan, China?s Asian neighbors, just to take a few examples?reactions and strategies toward the rising China. Less attention was paid to China?s own perceptions and reactions to the China threat theory. How did the Chinese leaders, decision makers, policy analysts think of the China threat theory? How did they construe the origins or roots of the China threat theory? Did they deem the theory solely as a conspiracy aimed to contain China?s growth or did they somewhat acknowledge others might have legitimate reasons to concern? How did they come up with discourse and strategies to counter the China threat theory? What were the theories and beliefs behind their counter-strategies or counter-discourse? Serving as a catalyst, the China threat theory pushed the Chinese elites to reassess China?s deeds and its wants. A careful scrutiny of domestic discussions and debates suggests that, besides emotional denials and rational efforts to figure out ways to discredit the China threat theory, a new understanding of the nature of power, of how to exert power, as well as of China?s national interests surged out of water. Soft power, responsibility, legitimacy?these non-material faces of power are increasingly incorporated into Chinese elites? understanding of national power and great power status and then orients the Chinese diplomacy towards playing a more cooperative, constructive, and active role in regional and international affairs.

Abstract: How do foreign public view the rise of China? Drawing on data from East Asia
Barometer (EAB) and the Pew Global Attitudes Project (GAP), this study ?nds
considerable variations in how ordinary people in East Asia as well as other parts of
the world view China. Our analysis of the mass perceptions of China lends strong
supports to an instrumental explanation. Mass perception of China re?ects more
about each country's domestic socioeconomic stresses. Economically less secured individuals tend to hold more negative views about China. More important, this
instrumental perception of China intensi?es when there is a stronger economic tie
between the surveyed countries and China. Although more economically advantaged
people tend to be more positive about China, paradoxically most people who hold
negative view about China are in countries with the strongest economic ties with
China.

Abstract: This paper seeks to examine the ways in which the development and adjustment of linguistic and social identities impact the conveyance of culture in language classrooms. Specifically, the research will examine culture as it is projected in EFL classrooms in Chinese public schools that are taught by Chinese national teachers. Underlying examinations are likely to include the impact of English Language Acquisition on professional identity development for non-native English speaking EFL teachers (NNESTs); the impact of cultural exposure leading up to induction as an EFL instructor on cultural perspectives; and the relationship between each of these and an instructor's motivation to become and/or remain an EFL instructor in Chinese public schools.

This study will draw information empirically from survey responses and individual interviews of NNESTs who currently teach under the nationally funded and designed English language curriculum in China. Survey questions are being designed to explore the general experience of teachers, with reference to the pedagogy and methodology being utilized in their classrooms and how it appeals to culture in various ways. Interviews, then, will open and allow instructors to discuss their perspectives on the implementation and presentation of culture specifically. Questions and discussions are not intended to extract opinions on the programming of the Chinese government, nor to seek expression of opinion on Western culture. Simply put, this research will explore the nature of English as a culturally adaptable language in an environment that is particularly sensitive to the separation of its culture from others.

The significance for this research is that English as an International Language is growing as a global concept for scholars, policymakers and practitioners alike -- it is extending away from its imperialistic roots and proving that it, as a language, can adapt culturally. China, in the meantime and in response to this, has adopted a national EFL curriculum and the study of English is required for all students beginning in Middle School (Adamson, B. 2004) . This comes after centuries of China rejecting English due to its ties with Western culture. The adoption of the curriculum came simultaneously with the "boom" of English academies and EFL instruction in the late 90s to now (Tseng, S. 2011), suggesting that the government may have been hoping to maintain control of the ways in which Western culture was or was not conveyed through the study of the language.

This being the case, a review of the presentation of English as an International Language in China also gives way to an understanding of China's intentions for Western relations and future relationships with the Western world (Jin, L. 2003). By examining this perspective through the lens of public school teachers, conclusions might be drawn about the communication being passed to future generations, thereby providing implications for the future of those relationships.

Abstract: This paper focuses on the use of mobile applications (apps) and the model of cross-regional communication in the app markets of the Greater China area (mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau), and explores the influence of policy, capital, and regional cultural tastes on the consumption of mobile apps. The cross-regional degree of mobile apps is used to measure the circulation of apps in different markets, and to single out mobile apps and their producers that can achieve cross-regional commercial success and gain market recognition in the Greater China area. Built on quantitative methods, the final samples consist of 1,124 mobile apps that are ranked among the top 500 in at least two markets. Further coding of these apps and their producers has been done according to market platform, founding year, price, whether the app is listed or not, the location of producers, app genres, and cross-regional degree. The results show that, in the mobile app market, no such thing as a Greater-China community exists. The consumption of apps in these markets is significantly influenced by policies, company capital, and local cultural tastes. In addition, mainland China is obviously isolated from other Greater China regions. Compared with the cross-regional degrees of apps in Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, the degree in mainland China is rather low.

Abstract: How can a rising China credibly signal its intentions? The literature on US-China relations currently lacks systematic criteria for inferring the credibility of China’s foreign policy signals, which has produced widely divergent conclusions about its likely intentions. “China optimists” view China's cooperative signals as credible, while dismissing its non-cooperative behaviors as unrepresentative of its broader preferences. Conversely, “China pessimists” see China's cooperative signals as non-credible misrepresentation, and focus mainly on China's recent “assertive turn.” As a first step toward reconciling these opposing views, this paper introduces a novel set of deductive criteria for inferring the credibility of a rising state's foreign policy signals. These criteria, which are grounded in the theoretical literature on credible signaling, combine insights from both China optimists and China pessimists regarding barriers that exist to the credibility of China's signals. Broadly, I argue that China's cooperative signals are more credible to the extent that they occur under relatively low external constraints from other states. This suggests that US strategy toward China affects the credibility of China's cooperative signals in ways that have been largely overlooked. The consensus US foreign policy toward China has been to increase constraints over China’s behavior through a combination of deterrent threats and positive inducements, thereby reducing the credibility of its cooperative signals. The paper concludes with a discussion of feasible alternative US foreign policy strategies, and their informational and strategic tradeoffs.
