Event details

Mediating ‘China’: Postgraduate Symposium of Visual Representations of the People, Traditions, and Spaces of Chinese-speaking Communities

This symposium, hosted by the Centre for International Film Research under the Film department at the University of Southampton, UK, will explore how the spaces, identities, languages, peoples, and traditions of various Chinese-speaking communities have been visualised and represented in a variety of visual media. From cinema and video games to television and other art forms, this symposium will offer an excellent platform to promote comprehensive and interdisciplinary insight not only into the Chinese visual culture itself, but also the eclectic range of innovative research methods and critical approaches employed to study and analyse such culture, along with their development and integration with the world amidst globalisation and current affairs/international relations. The event is organised by a group of PhD students in Film Studies at Southampton (James Jackson, Sakura Kang, Maggie Li, Fangfang Lin) under the advice of Dr Ruby Cheung. It will be open to the participation of PhD students from across the UK and further afield.
