Research

Dr Haiqing Yu is senior lecturer of contemporary Chinese media and culture in the School of Humanities and Languages, University of New South Wales, Australia. She has published widely in journalism, media studies, communication studies, cultural studies, Asian studies, and Chinese studies in referred academic journals and books. She is the author of Media and Cultural Transformation in China (2009 Routledge) and co-author of Sex in China (with Elaine Jeffreys, January 2015 Polity).

Haiqing's research falls into two broad disciplines: media and communication studies; and cultural/sociological studies. Her interest in Chinese media and communication spans across a broad spectrum of the screen culture, be it big screen (cinema screen), small screen (television and computer screen), or smaller screen (digital video and mobile phone screen). She approaches these screens from interdisciplinary frameworks, including cultural studies, sociology, political sciences, and digital media and communications studies. Haiqing's work in cultural/sociological studies focuses on contemporary Chinese social movement, social media, social entrepreurship, social commerce, and cultural transformation. She has published research on Chinese grassroots philanthropy, e-commerce, youth culture, gender and sexuality, HIV/AIDS communication, and sports media. 

Haiqing supervises Honours, MA (research), and PhD students in areas related to Chinese and Asian media, communication studies, and cultural studies.
