Sino-American Transitions: Language, Identity and Information

Date of this Version


Document Type

Conference Paper


Since normalization, the US – China relationship has been anchored by an imprecise mixture of cooperation and competition. After 2008, a variety of factors have forced a change in that balance, with the current period of transition reflecting an increased focus on managing competition while cooperation in many fields continues unabated. This paper will review the factors behind this change, with a particular focus on the roles of language, identity formation and the evolving information environment in which Sino-American dialogue takes place.
