Project: Disorienting Politics: Rising China and Chimerica Media

Disorienting Politics examines the political implications of China’s “rise” in contemporary America from the perspective of media/cultural studies. Encompassing election campaign ads, popular films, shows, and journalistic accounts, these artifacts invite critical attention to the Chinese state as an agent in shaping global media culture. Focusing on transnational media as a site of cultural production, this project explores nationhood, citizenship, and race/ethnicity as key to the interdisciplinary study of politics in global contexts.
