Discourse Identification and Coordination: On National Consciousness and the Translation of Chinese Political Discourses
Speaker: Shilei Zhai, China University of Mining & Technology

Authors: Shilei Zhai & Changgui Li

Ideology shapes political discourses, and national consciousness is essential to political discourses translation. Discourses concerning sovereignty, ethnicity and state nature should be categorized into critical political discursive which deserves systematic and national criteria. China’s political discourses, unique to Chinese political and social ecology, are unknown and less comprehensible to foreigners. Thus, the author finally argues that the process of identification integration, including linguistic identification, cultural identification and political identification, can be achieved via the principle of three-coordination, namely the coordination of linguistic symbols and political implications, Chinese characters and universal features as well as internal and international contexts.
