[ecrea] CFP: Emerging Chinese theory and practice of media

Thu Feb 01 23:17:48 GMT 2018


Co-editors Hugo de Burgh, Emma Lupano, and Bettina Mottura invite submissions of full papers for publication in a 2018 issue of the journal Languages Cultures Mediations (Issue nr. 2 vol. 5, June 2018), focusing on the theme "Emerging Chinese theory and practice of media".

China has developed its own model of media management and journalism since the foundation of the People’s Republic of China. This model, which traditionally encompasses a very strong relation between politics and media practices, has evolved over the last 40 years of reforms. At the national level, it has transformed into a much more complex and nuanced system based on the mediation between political, commercial and professional interests. At the international level, the ambition of China to contribute to the media agenda and flow of information has grown significantly. 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. We welcome submissions for the Vol 5 (2018) - No 2 - "Emerging Chinese theory and practice of media" of the journal Languages Cultures and Mediations
