Talk: Media Culture in Ireland and its lesson for China
Date: 20 November 2009 

The European Studies Programme of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures has the pleasure of inviting you to the following talk:

Projecting the Nation: Media Culture in Ireland and its lesson for China         
Guest Speaker: Dr. Liu Chen

Date: November 20, 2009 (Fri) at 2.00 PM – 3.00 PM

Venue: TS404

This paper elucidates the changing phases of Ireland's media culture from its origins to the development of mass media. It analyses the Irish media's revolutionary concerns for a free and united Ireland, its role in the consolidation of the republic, and its adaptation to Ireland's economic success as a 'Celtic tiger.'  

This paper also explores what the Chinese media can learn from the case of Ireland in light of the changing social role that the media is presently playing in China, as the country has emerged as a global economic player.

* Dr. Liu Chen, Director, Centre for Intercultural Studies, School of English and International Studies, Beijing Foreign Studies University
