Leaving China: Media, Migration, and Transnational Imagination (World Social Change) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fascinating book offers fresh insight into contemporary China and the Chinese diaspora experience and consciousness through a lively and innovative examination of media old and new. Exploring the relationship between media, mobility, and the formation of transnational subjectivities, Wanning Sun shows how media production and consumption within China and among Chinese diasporic communities contributes to a changing sense of self, place, space, and nation. Writing with verve and understanding, Sun draws on a close reading of print, film, television, internet, and other new media technologies to draw a rich picture of the Chinese transnational imagination.

Book News Annotation:

The images Chinese have of travel and living abroad as these are presented and experienced in film, television and other media are the subject of this volume by Sun (media studies, Curtin U. of Technology, Perth, Australia). The topics include representations of the terms village, city, and abroad in Chinese film; themes of mobility in the transnational imagination; portrayal in television dramas of Chinese living in the New World; and the use Chinese living abroad make of Chinese media sources.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 219-229) and index.

Synopsis:

More than ever before, China is on the move. When the flow of people and images is fused, meanings of self, place, space, community, and nation become unstable and contestable. This fascinating book explores the ways in which movement within and across the national borders of the PRC has influenced the imagination of the Chinese people, both those who remain and those who have left. Travelers or no, all participate in the production and consumption of images and narratives of travel, thus contributing to the formation of transnational subjectivities.
