How to Evaluate Post-Colonialism Theory: Introspection of Chinese Traditional Culture Under Post-Colonial Perspective

Wenhua HU, Mei GUO

Abstract


Post-colonialism theory had played an important role in challenging western supremacy and advocating equal dialogue between First World and Third World. This paper has elaborated the problems such as method, nature, content and the origin of postcolonial theory from the angle of dynamic development. At the same time, the paper discusses Chinese images under the influence of post-colonialism theory. Finally, the author offers the strategy on how China deals with western culture hegemony and gives a new visual angle to culture hegemony study, thus reconstruct Chinese traditional culture.
