Abstract

Hofstede, a renowned Dutch scholar, puts forward a concept called “culture dimension” in Culture’s Consequences. Four aspects are included in the concept: power distance, uncertainty avoidance, individualism and collectivism, masculinity and femininity. American anthropologist Edward Twitchell Hall advances high context and low context to analyse cultural diversity based on the two concepts. Professor Kluckhohn from Harvard University and Strodtbeck put forward the theory of time orientation. The Wedding Banquet is directed by the famous director Li An, presenting a story about an Asian-American whose name is Gao Weitong. He is a homosexual, choosing to marry a female painter who is an illegal immigrant in order to deal with his parents from Taipei to force him into marriage. The thesis will choose two aspects of “culture dimension” (power distance and uncertainty avoidance), high context and low context, and the theory of time orientation to analyse cross-cultural elements in The Wedding Banquet.
