Lecturer in Media and Communications, Swansea University
While completing my MA degree in International Journalism in Beijing (1995 -1998), I worked as an intern journalist for both the Xinhua News Agency and China Central Television. I was also regularly contributing feature stories for national broadsheet newspapers including The Guangming Daily, The Legal Daily, China Business Times and China Daily (in English). I worked four years as a lecturer in International Journalism at the Communication University of China after graduation.
Granted an Overseas Research Students Award, I came to Wales in 2002. While completing my PhD at Cardiff University, I was assisting teaching on two core undergraduate modules and also worked for an EU-sponsored project, POLITIS: Building Europe with New Citizens? (2005-2006) and the ESRC-funded project, ‘Always On’: Continuous Broadband and Household Dynamics (2007). I moved to take up my current post as Lecturer in Media Studies at Swansea University in August 2007.
Currently, I coordinate the MA Comparative Journalism apart from delivering teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I would welcome applications from candidates who are interested in developing their knowledge and understanding of the role of journalism in a global context and how information communication technologies have reshaped journalism as a profession.
I also welcome applications from doctoral candidates who wish to work in the fields of global media and comparative journalism, or any area of media and the public sphere, computer-mediated communication, and migration and communication.
