CPEC and Cultural Connectivity: A Study of Media and Literary Productions
Keywords:CPEC, Culture, Media and Literature, China, Pakistan
Keeping culture at the core, this study tries to establish the possibilities of connectivity between China and Pakistan on softer grounds along with economic activity. To elucidate these possibilities in depth, media and literature have been focused upon amongst a variety of cultural manifestations. By relying on methodological tools from semiotics and comparative literary studies, the data set is approached to trace the elements with shared cultural capital. One significant contribution of the study is that it highlights the cultural potential of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and suggests ways to promote collective cultural activity.
