Cultural Self-identity in "the Other" A Study on Chinese Images in Country Driving
- the Other; the self; self-orientalization; self-westernization; the orientalism-occidentalism
The paper starts with a theoretical statement of "the Other", explaining "China in the Other" under the perspective of Orientalism, on which, a practical deconstruction will be related to details in Country Driving. And the changing of "China in the Other" and its essential will also be figured out, that is, the new presentation of "China in the Other" and the orientalist Chinese images. By observing a certain theory connected with the cultural self-identity, it is derived out that the thinking model of binary opposition needs to be deconstructed. A set of valuable bases from anti-essentialism to anti-intermediateness to the viewpoint of identity, and the thinking routine or practical direction from self-orientalization to self-westernization to the Orientalism-occidentalism, have stated that the cultural self-identity had to run away the west-tropism, at the same time, regarding it as an example or pathway for drawing its good. But the most significant is to focus on our traditional culture in a real self-identity.
