Danmu is specially defined as all those comments that are inserted on top of the video feeds,which are over-laid on the screen and flow from the right to the left end.This research use the field theory of Pierre Bourdieu as a theoretical framework which combines some other socialogical theories such as theories of Jean Baudrillard to analyze the cultural field of barrage video site in China.I take the website called bilibili as an example to analyze how the field is constructed through three dimension:the website,the barrage video and the users.The Field Theory points out that the complex mutual relationship of all the inner factors lay the basis of a field. As far as this research,the bilibili website provides a cultural production space since it has attracted lots ACG users due to its abundant content resource,strict membership and sophisticated community rules.The exclusive discourse system of barrage video has formed an unique express code system of this field. Danmu language is characterized by repeat, rhetorical question, a set of network language. With these features, danmu language has become an important tool for users to identify people on the same side. Users in the field are the main actors who engage in the cultural production of the field as a team.These three factors work together to construct the culture field of bilibili danmu website.
