    Abstract: 有別於其他華美作家企圖扭轉中國人在白人文化中的刻板印象,譚艾美的《喜福會》試圖透過女兒/母親的雙重視角敘述四對母女間的十六則故事來檢視在不同文化及世代下成長的中國女性其性別角色認同的情形以及母女/夫妻關係間權力運作的樣貌。
    家庭及婚姻的親屬關係是最尋常及普遍的,然而,當兩種不同文化在這些親屬關係中相遇之時,究竟會產生怎樣的結果?是互斥還是相融? 同時,在不同文化主導下的家庭成員所呈現出的思維模式又將使得這些雙重文化背景的家庭及婚姻發生怎樣的變化?
    ;Other than the other Chinese American writers whose works aim to justify the stereotypical image of Chinese in White culture, Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, composed of sixteen interwoven stories told by four couples of Chinese mother and American-born daughter, intends to examine gender identity of Chinese women grown up in different cultures and generations and the contour of power operation in relationships of mother-daughter and husband-wife through the double viewpoints as mother/daughter.
    Divided into four chapters, this thesis tries to delve into intersections of power, gender and culture in mother-daughter and husband-wife relationships of different generations from the angle of sociology. In Chapter I, a brief introduction of the trend and subject of the contemporary Chinese-American literature, the historical background of the novel and the definition of the three core elements-power, gender and culture are offered. Chapter II and Chapter III respectively discuss the intersections of the three elements in mother-daughter and husband-wife relationships of two generations. Chapter IV is the conclusion.
    The kinships of family and marriage are very common in the society. However, when two different cultures meet in the kinships, what will happen? Excluding or including each other? Meanwhile, under the different cultivations of cultures and thinking modes, what will the family and marriage of these heroines with dual-cultural background become?
    Taking family and marriage as the main axis, the thesis attempts to view the intersections, interlockings and inter-effects of familial and marital relationships in the novel under the male-dominant and patriarchal-centered context by Amy Tan’s portrayal of American and Chinese cultures in The Joy Luck Club. My research ultimately finds that through the conflicts and reconciliations between two heterogeneous cultures, which is presented as those between mother-daughter and husband-wife relationships, as the theme of the novel, Amy Tan bridges at first glimpse the seemingly independent and incompatible cultures and demonstrates the possibility of coexistence of heterogeneous cultures.
