Hollywood Made in China – What are the Stakes?

February 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Dr. Aynne Kokas is an assistant professor of media studies at the University of Virginia. Kokas’ research broadly examines Sino-US media and technology relations. Her book,Hollywood Made in China (University of California Press, 2017) argues that Chinese investment and regulations have fundamentally altered the landscape of the US commercial media industry, most prominently in the case of major conglomerates that rely on leveraging global commercial brands. Her next project Networked Chinawood examines the cybersecurity and policy implications of digital media in the Sino-US relationship. Kokas has been a visiting fellow at the Shanghai Institute of International Studies and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. She is a non-resident scholar at Rice University’s Baker Institute of Public Policy and a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Her writing and commentary appears regularly in popular media outlets including the BBC, The Los Angeles Times, NPR’s Marketplace, CCTV, The Washington Post, and Wired. She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and began her career in Chinese media as a student in the Directing Department at the Beijing Film Academy.

Aynne Kokas’ book Hollywood Made in China will be available for purchase at the event.
