Prof. Wang Xiaoming will discuss the intellectual and social factors for the sweeping current of “Cultural Studies” in the Chinese mainland toward the end of the 1990’s. His will examine the formation of two major orientations in Chinese Cultural Studies, namely: (1) Cultural Studies as a “new wave” in scholarly development; (2) Cultural Studies as a contemporary form of social analysis and cultural practice. Finally, drawing on the case of Shanghai as an example, Prof. Wang will outline some specific issues in the development of Cultural Studies in China today, covering such themes as the new dominant ideology, the difference of the two “markets”, the dynamics of social reform, urban and rural cultures, and the question of institution.
