    Analysis of the Reasons for the Youth Employment Difficulties in Today’s China

    Nowadays, Chinese society has entered a stage of rapid development, and a large number of knowledge-building talents are needed to help China's future development. As the main force of China's future development, young people must have a rich knowledge background as well as good physical and mental health, so as to firmly guarantee the future of China. However, the fact is that, recently, a large number of graduates are unable to find a job or they take jobs that are low-paying, unstable, or less people-oriented. Over time, young people will be less positive at work, and their enthusiasm for work will be greatly reduced, which is not conducive to China's future development. In this case, this paper studies the employment dilemma of contemporary Chinese youth and the reasons behind it, drawing the conclusion that at present, Chinese youth are faced with a dual employment dilemma of the changing employment situation and changing employment preferences, which is caused by the increase in the number of outstanding graduates, the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, the turnover wave of Generation Z, and the structural problems of youth employment.

    A Study on the Complementary Phenomenon of Confucianism and Daoism in Wang Yangming’s Thought

    Wang Yangming, as a representative figure of the new Confucianism in the Ming Dynasty, was deeply influenced by the intellectual trend of synthesizing the three teachings since the Tang and Song Dynasties and the complementarity of Confucianism and Daoism. He ingeniously integrated the cultural essences of Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism, forming the unique philosophy of Yangming’s mind. The formation of this ideology not only originated from his distant family cultural tradition but also closely related to his unique life experiences. In Yangming’s mind philosophy, the complementary features of Confucianism and Daoism are particularly evident. Based on the ontology of mind philosophy, Wang Yangming actively drew on Daoist speculative philosophy, daringly questioned Cheng-Zhu Neo-Confucianism, and developed Confucianism by incorporating Daoism. This had a profound impact on the intellectual and literary artistic creation of ancient Chinese literati. His thoughts reveal the rich results brought about by the exchange and collision of diverse cultures in the development of ancient Chinese philosophy. In the history of Chinese thought, it has unique philosophical connotations and research value. Exploring the complementary phenomenon of Confucianism and Daoism in Wang Yangming’s thought contributes to a deeper study and understanding of his philosophy.

    The Influence of Information Media on People's Gender Identity

    Media and gender identity construction are interdependent. Media reinforce people's gender identity by perpetuating stereotypes, while also reflecting the public's demand for gender identity. This paper explores the impact of information media on people's gender cognition and the changes in gender perception under media influence. It also examines the differences between media in the past and contemporary periods, and their respective effects. For instance, before the popularization of paper information, oral language was the main medium for people. At that time, information was subject to the media, with slow transmission speed and a small influence range. In this condition, due to the superiority of the male physiological structure, there is a male-biased patriarchal gender relationship, which was first established in social production relations. The low social productivity makes the social status of men with innate physiological advantages above that of women. This fact proves that the influence of information media on people's gender cognition is huge, and society reinforces people's gender identity by emphasizing men's physical advantages. The ultimate goal of this study is to showcase the huge stereotypes created by the media in the past and the current 'improvement' situation.

    Investigating Gratitude and Nostalgia: A Research Proposal Examining the Chain Mediating Roles of Self-Compassion and Meaning in Life

    Nostalgia is a multifaceted, ego-driven social emotion that emerges during reflections on the past and encourages prosocial behaviors. Gratitude is regarded as both a temperament and a moral sentiment aimed at an elevated state of acknowledgment, playing a significant role in fostering positive psychological outcomes. Besides, self-compassion is characterised by three fundamental elements: mindfulness, common humanity, and self-kindness, the act of treating oneself with kindness and empathy when confronted with difficulties, which can help alleviate emotional distress and promote emotional recovery, which means in life is defined as an individual's subjective perception that their life possesses coherence, purposefulness, and meaningfulness. This research proposal will provide a feasibility programme for future formal studies. Study 1 intends to recruit 160 participants online through a questionnaire, while Study 2 plans for online recruitment of 210 participants, employing an experimental approach to manipulate nostalgia versus non-nostalgia conditions. The results will likely indicate a positive relationship between nostalgia and gratitude, with self-compassion and meaning in life acting as chain mediators in explaining how nostalgia promotes gratitude. In other words, nostalgia can facilitate the experience of gratitude through a chain of mediating factors, including self-compassion and meaning in life.

    Oriental Punk Aesthetics and Youth Discourse Construction in Chinese Animated Films: Taking the New Gods Series of Animated Films as an Example

    Although punk culture was introduced into China from the West, with the rapid development of Chinese science and technology and the enhancement of the consciousness of national discourse construction, Chinese punk culture has shown a breakthrough trend. Meanwhile, as a significant representation of youth subculture, punk culture always pays attention to youth culture's reality to convey young people's spiritual needs. With the development of the Internet, the attitude of youth has gradually changed from complete rebellion to looking out from the edge to the center, showing the tension of resistance and compromise. In this paper, the author studies Oriental punk aesthetics and youth discourse construction in Chinese animated films, and the New Gods series of animated films is taken as a case study. According to analysis, it is concluded that the New Gods series connects the punk style with national identity, finds the commonality between punk culture and the spiritual core of the films, and fits with the discourse of youth in the context of national culture, so as to construct a localized mythological space based on national historical experience and explore the mode of youth culture with Oriental punk aesthetics.
