Comparative Visions: media and globalization in Greater China


The media and globalization project is a large-scale comparative survey conducted in six cities in the Greater China region: Hong Kong, Taipei, Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Xian. This survey seeks to examine, among other things, how the Chinese people perceive globalization’s impacts on their Chinese communities, and how the mass media shape these perceptions. This survey has interviewed more than 3,000 individuals from the above six cities, thereby resulting in a rich dataset that informs the academic community of the dynamics between media and the Chinese public opinion about globalization. Part of the survey results have been presented at major international conferences and published in leading academic journals. This project team includes Prof. Chin-Chuan Lee, Dr. Zhou He, Dr. Mike Yao, Dr. Wan-Ying Lin and Dr. Francis Lee.    ( more...)
