Dialogism in International Communication Texts: From the Perspective of Public Diplomacy

Mei GUO, Wenhua HU


In the new dimension of public diplomacy, the core of international communication texts is a cross-cultural dialogue between domestic communicators and overseas receivers. With Bakhtin’s theory as a guideline and dialogism in texts as a breakthrough, this thesis analyzes the monologues and monophony in Chinese international communication texts, explores the linguistic approaches producing dialogism and presents a strategy on building the dialogism in international communication texts.
