[Online] Wishing and Worrying in Beijing and Taipei, 2019

ANU China Seminar Series

This seminar is a kind of introduction to a new project that aims to use “religious” actions to produce information about what worries people in contemporary Beijing and Taipei. The material that I have collected are the “wishes” people have written on red ribbons (or their equivalents) on “wishing trees 許願樹” in both cities.

[Online] How to stop worrying and learn to love brand China in the age of quarantine?

ANU China Seminar Series

Culture went ‘viral’ in the face of crisis and has rapidly transformed the way audiences experience museums: from virtual tours, unique campaigns and series on social media to engagement in real-time with live streams. Attempts to make cultural objects come to ‘life’ and/or ‘talk’ were most apparent during the time of enforced closure of Chinese museums after Wuhan was locked down.
