The symposium will take placeat the Avenue Campus, the University of Southampton, on *4 May 2019*. This symposium will coincide with the 100^th anniversary of the May Fourth Movement that was instrumental in changing the trajectory of the development of Chinese culture in the past century. Itwill explore how the spaces, identity, language, people 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.
