Chinese Media and Cultural Studies: Consumption, Content and Crisis.


The Inaugural UCMeCSA Biennial-Conference, 6th February 2015, School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, Cardiff University

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 a 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 Prof. Paul Bowman.
