Comparing China’s Self-image and Western Media Projected Image: From the Perspective of Davos Forum

Guang Xu, Ming Ren

Abstract

This paper is an attempt to assist the national image studies with text summarization techniques. Based on the collected western news and Chinese speeches in the context of Davos Forum, this paper aims to provide evidence in a specific context to understand the national image building. Specifically, the paper examines the discrepancies between the self-image and the media projected image, as well as the trend, and the images are compared by countries and newspapers. Discrepancies are found and they are not vanishing in the past years. A positive signal is found in 2017, which has implications for the national image building of China. Besides these findings, this paper also offers a framework of computing the national image with text.
