[ecrea] New special issue of WPCC: re-evaluating China’s global media expansion

Mon Jun 25 17:33:22 GMT 2018


The journal */WESTMINSTER PAPERS IN COMMUNICATION AND CULTURE/* is thrilled to announce the publication of an extensive special issue on the topic of China's much debated 'going-out' strategy as it has developed. It extends the discussion about China’s international media expansion by focusing on the act of communicating the ‘going-out’ message and how it has been received by residents of Latin America, the USA and Africans studying in China.

Eleven contributions consider topics in television news and radio, to Twitter and the financial structures of Chinese internet firms alongside book reviews of major new publications on Chinese and global media politics. These articles present new data and interview material as well as alerting readers to some of the most useful theoretical tools to develop understanding of the issue’s theme. Commentaries from BBC journalist Vincent Ni and from Aike Li and Minsu Wu reflect respectively on the new approach of Shanghai’s Sixth Tone and CGTN’s new mission in international communication as expressed by insiders and via public statements.
