Based at the University of Westminster, the Contemporary China Centre focuses on interdisciplinary research interdisciplinary research on China — broadly defined—which is grounded in cultural studies. Our work builds on Westminster’s long-term commitment to Chinese studies at whose heart lies an engagement with Chinese language, cultural practice and production, and its critical analysis. Our work is built on and informed by the University’s unique collection of propaganda posters from the People’s Republic.
Launched in October 2019, the Contemporary China Centre blog brings together our research and expertise concerning the cultural dimensions of social and political transformation in China and the cutting-edge issues that are core features of China’s role in the global circulation of knowledge and cultural influence. We hope that our blog project will contribute to ongoing debates and promote interdisciplinary dialogue about the social, cultural, political and historical dynamics that inform life in China today.
