A multidimensional cross-cultural semiotic model from China to the West
- 99 Downloads
This paper explores cross-cultural semiotics model in the multidimensional perspective in order to rethink the relationships between works originality and its creation, besides China and the West as well. The multi-dimensional model of cross-cultural semiotics put forward in the paper defends a temporal semiotic orientation, rather than a purely spatial approach for intercultural interpretation. With China’s rapid development in technological changes and its impact upon inter-medial practices, the model is contemplated as intercultural avenues for learning about the West and exporting Chinese culture to the world.
