“Emerging Chinese theory and practice of media” is the focus of a 2018 issue of the journal Languages Cultures Mediations (Issue nr. 2 vol. 5, publication December 2018). Co-editors Hugo de Burgh, Emma Lupano, and Bettina Mottura would like to remind their invitation for submissions of full papers by 30 June 2018.
In recent years, the Chinese discourse on the media has focused on the importance of innovation and quality of national media production as well as on strengthening China’s influence on international news production. In this changing context, it is important to examine the evolution of the idea and practice of the media in the country. The volume aims to explore the emerging Chinese theories and discourses on the role and functions of the media as well as on journalism values and practices, also in comparison with the global stance(s). Authors are invited to submit proposals stemming from a wide range of methodological perspectives. Contributions based on primary sources are particularly welcome.
Deadline for paper submission is 30 June 2018.
