Call for Papers

This event is held by the UK-China Media and Cultural Studies Association (UCMECSA), which aims to provide a platform for communication between Chinese media and culture researchers in Britain, and to discuss cultural difference, crossover, communication and diversity among Western countries and China.

This conference is intended to facilitate the opportunity for researchers on Chinese media and cultural studies to engage in cross-cultural comparison and dialogue on the core issues of Chinese media and cultural studies, with particular focus on media, culture, communication, arts and politics. We therefore invite papers that address areas such as the following:

  • Media and cultural comparison between the West and China
  • Chinese media and journalism studies
  • Chinese popular cultural studies
  • Chinese political studies
  • Chinese migration issues

Confirmed keynote speakers include Prof. Richard Sambrook and Dr. Paul Bowman.

A maximum of 30 minutes will be allocated to each conference paper (20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions). Panel proposals (three presenters – 90 minutes) should include a 150-word overview and 250 word individual abstracts (plus author information listed above).
