Organised by: The Amsterdam Centre for Globalisation Studies together with the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the Free University.

This seminar brings together scholars from history, anthropology, media studies and cultural analysis. It focuses on contemporary China in a context of intense globalisation. It engages with the lives of migrant workers in Shenzhen, the foreign journalists who bring the world to China, it questions whether media produces a public sphere in China and presents an in-depth study of Foxconn workers. Together, these papers present a unique view on the rapidly changing political and cultural landscape of China. This workshop is part of the Transasia Cultural Studies group (ACGS/ASCA) and the Global Encounters Seminar Series (VU).
