In week 7, this week is presentation week. We have revised our PPT and script several times in order to perform the presentation better. We had a rehearsal in the digital room on Wednesday, then we presented our parts together on Thursday in the Forum theater. Thanks so much for the opportunity to join the big family and present my research findings. Through the whole presentation, I can know more information about the influence that Alice in wonderland have generated around the target countries. Besides, I have a deeper understanding of soft power. Furthermore, what’s my following task? I cannot waiting to work on the next.
In the 6th week, I have worked on Friday and Saturday because I have a 4-days trip from Monday to Thursday. I am preparing for the presentation in this week. I searched many beautiful pictures about the five cities we focus on, then I post many Alice in wonderland related pictures on my PPT, such as the restaurant, hotel, cafes and bars, ballet, shows and other shopping stores or different version stories. I aim to show how popular Alice in wonderland is and a variety forms of the cultural contents related to it. I have already sent the PPT to Dr. Natalia, looking forward to getting some advice so that I can finish the presentation better.
In week 5, I continued to search the cultural information related to ‘Alice in wonderland’ between the 2 cities – Tokyo and Paris. As the romantic city, Tokyo and Paris have many Alice themed restaurants, bars, cafes and hotels. During my research, I still find many other cities apart from the 5 cites we have focused on also have some Alice themed facilities or activities, such as Berlin, Manchester, New York, Shanghai. There is no doubt that Alice is so popular around the world. Looking forward to taking presentation to share my search results to others. I will prepare the power point for the presentation immediately after a short Easter break.
