Media in all of its various manifestations—old and new, print and virtual, film and video, analog and digital, recorded and streamed, journalistic, artistic, “Youkued” “Weiboed” and “WeChatified”—defines the cutting edge of new and emergent cultural forms in Asia. There is no better time to investigate the modalities of media and mediation in contemporary academia, when the pandemic restricts many physical activities and population flows.  Join the Asian Studies Center for this three-day institute that will explore the way in which histories of different periods, encompassing different regions, can be understood in relation to emergent forms of media and mediated knowledge.  Register here
