Abstract

Against the background that media technology is highly embedded in social life, rituals glow with new luster by means of media and have multiple effects on audiences. Among them, awakening and reconstructing collective memory as well as building and strengthening national identity are the main roles of the current media ritual communication. Based on the agenda-setting theory and anchor point theory, this paper constructs a mechanism diagram of ritual significance target combined with threshold, clarifies the mechanism of ritual communication through the elaboration of the meaning ring, and explores how ritual communication affects collective memory and national identity. It is found that ritual communication not only awakens and reconstructs collective memory in retrospect, but also consolidates and stores collective memory in repetition. The role of ritual communication on national identity is achieved through the mechanism of “strengthening social ties - creating consensus - consolidating the rationality of social order ”. These two form a joint force, which is finally reflected in the significant social influence of ritual communication through media.
