Public Media in China?

when 11 August 2014 - 14 August 2014
duration 1 week
credits 1.5 ECTS
fee EUR 500

It is hard to understand Chinese media and Chinese press system. There is no single narration that can fully describe Chinese press. This course aims to provide a better understanding to Chinese media. First, it will discuss what the term “public media” means and try to use it in Chinese context. Then the course will introduce press systems in China - the eco environment of Chinese media, using media in big cities like Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Taiwan as cases. There is no other way to understand China unless you understand its media.
