China offers a rich context for examining the cultures and politics of media and communication. The size and complexity of Chinese politics, economy and society, and China’s role in shaping global media and communication systems make it central for students to understand the place of communication and information technologies, systems, practices and politics in the contemporary world. This course explores contemporary Chinese media and communication from a cultural, political and sociological perspective, paying attention to the contested and evolving developments in new digital forms and formats. This course will enable you to engage critically with a wide range of media and communication practices in China and gain advanced knowledge of Chinese media and of its communication ecosystem from governance/policy and production to circulation and consumption.
This course is taught in English and with readings in English.
