Online Session via Zoom
Hua Su would share her recent research on the online dating experiences of young women in urban China. Her talk will focus on the contradictions and dilemmas these women face while negotiating the increasing instrumentalism and materialism in Chinese romantic relationship and seeking “pure love” and egalitarian gender relations. Through the talk, Hua Su hopes to discuss the importance of examining the cultural meanings of ambiguity in online dating and the intersectionality of gender, class and sexuality in China’s contemporary dating culture.
