Publié le 2 juin 2022 Mis à jour le 8 juin 2022

Dr. Ying Zhu viendra nous présenter son nouvel ouvrage Hollywood in China: Behind the Scenes of the World’s Largest Movie Market (https://womensmediacenter.com/shesource/expert/dr-ying-zhu)
Book Talk: Hollywood in China

The book/my talk maps out multiple power dynamics and charts a century-long trajectory of the Sino-Hollywood relation against the backdrop of the shifting Sino-U.S. dynamic. It teases out competing political and economic interest as well as cultural values that have played out in the art and artifice of filmmaking on a global scale, and with global ramifications.


A professor emeritus at the City University of New York and an adjunct professor at the Columbia University, Dr. Ying ZHU is the founding editor and editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed academic journal Global Storytelling: Journal of Digital and Moving Images. A leading expert in Chinese film and television, her research areas encompass Chinese cinema and media, Sino-Hollywood relations, and TV dramas. She is the author to four books including Hollywood in China: Behind the Scenes of the World’s Largest Movie Market (2022) and Two Billion Eyes: The Story of China Central Television (2013), and co-editor of six book volumes including Soft Power with Chinese Characteristics: China’s Campaign for Hearts and Minds (2019). Her first research monograph, Chinese Cinema During the Era of Reform: The Ingenuity of the System (2003) pioneered the industry analysis of Chinese film studios, with the Journal of Asian Studies calling it “a path-breaking book that initiated the institutional study of Chinese cinema.” Her second research monograph, Television in Post-Reform China: Serial Drama, Confucian Leadership and the Global Television Market together with three co-edited books—TV China (2009), TV Drama in China (2008), and Television Dramas: The US and Chinese Perspectives (2005) pioneered the subfield of Chinese TV drama studies in the West. Her writings have appeared in major academic journals Journal of Cinema and Media Studies and Journal of Communication as well as established media outlets such as The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, etc. Her work has been translated into Chinese, Dutch, French, Italian and Spanish. Zhu is a recipient of a US National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship, an American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship, and a Fulbright (China) Senior Research Fellowship.

Zhu is currently the Director of Centre for Film and Moving Image Research and a faculty at the Academy of Film, Hong Kong Baptist University.
