The Media: The Neglected Discourse, Vol. 5 - 1998, No. 1

A Brief Review of Chinese Contributions to Communication and Media Studies

, pages: 71-78

Focusing mainly on contributions made in Taiwan and China during the past decade, this review constructs their respective features. While China through her collective work provides Chinese readers relatively rich literature in media histories across advanced capitalist societies with critical edge, she is weak in supplying critic discourses with regards to her own changing media political economies. In comparison, Taiwan is quite the opposite. Her reception of western media history is short of a class perspective, while her recent work records and radically comments the island's contemporary media politics of national identity, intellectual intervention, and American-imperialism etc.. Also included in is a snap of some liberal English and Chinese writings analyzing Chinese media systems and communication practices in transition.
