A Corpus-based Study on the Evolution of China’s National Image Constructed Through Its Diplomacy（1949-2018）
In light of theories of Imagology, Critical Discourse Analysis and Corpus-based Translation Studies, the study takes an interdisciplinary approach to explore China’s national images constructed through its diplomacy between 1949 and 2018 based on the diachronic Chinese Diplomatic Discourse Corpus, with a combination of qualitative and quantitative method. The research firstly investigates what internalized images and strategic images (of three different periods, namely, 1948-1978, 1979-2012, and 2013-2018) of China have been constructed through the scrutiny of the language features of the diplomatic discourses. Then, the study examines the social-historical factors that contribute to the construction of the said images by recontextualization. Lastly, the author summarizes the insights of the study and tentatively puts forward some suggestions for the construction of China’s national images, and the Chinese-English translation and interpretation of the diplomatic discourses. It is hoped that the results of this research will be of some theoretical and practical significance for the study of national images and translation and interpretation of diplomatic discourses.
