Description

Discpinary Elective Course


Students in this course examine the cultural industry sector in China and its interactions with the international cultural industry scene. The course is designed to give students the opportunity to examine a diverse range of media—including music, art, literature, film, advertising, blogs and tweets—in relation to the society and industrial practices that propel ideas into commercialized or widely circulating cultural products. The course places these cultural and commercial concerns in the changing social and political context of contemporary China and its interactions with the rest of the world.
