Research

Dr Haiqing Yu is senior lecturer of contemporary Chinese media and culture in the School of Humanities and Languages. She has published widely in the areas of Chinese digital media and communication, journalism and popular culture. She is the author of Media and Cultural Transformation in China (Routledge, 2009), and currently working on an Australian Research Council Discovery project “Internet Histories in Australia and Asian Pacific” (with Goggin et al). 

Haiqing's research falls into two broad disciplines: media studies and cultural/sociological studies. Her interest in Chinese media studies 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 a cultural studies perspective, grounded in the field of media and communications studies. In particular, her research has illuminated the sociopolitical aspect of unofficial/independent/underground smaller screen realities. Haiqing's work in cultural/sociological studies focuses on contemporary Chinese youth culture, sexuality, HIV/AIDS, and sports.

Haiqing supervises Honours and Higher Degree Research students in areas related to Chinese and Asian media and communication studies and cultural studies.
