A Special Issue of Critical Arts - the Journal of South-North Cultural and Media Studies edited by Keyan Tomaselli, is dedicated to investigating the discursive practices of the Chinese media in their relationship with cultural globalization and globalization in contemporary China or Greater China. The contributors to this special issue are scholars around the world, dedicated to cross-disciplinary investigation of the diverse voices in media domains.
Over the past two decades, China has undergone significant internal changes and transformations, along with the external globalization movement. The articles selected for this special issue devote attention to contemporary Chinese cultural practices reflected in the media discourses, by constantly opposing and comparing global/Western/modern and the local/Chinese/traditional forces. The authors explore the discourses of international news reporting, development and representation of globalization in Chinese broadcasting practice. Furthermore, critical discussion about contemporary China and Chinese modernity is presented through insightful analysis of cinematic text.
