China Made / CEKP workshop

Keywords for Infrastructure and Media

Denver, Colorado. March 24-25, 2019

This workshop merged China Made with the international Chinese-English Keywords Project (CEKP) led by Louisa Schein (Rutgers University), and was co-organized by Yang Fan and Alessandro Rippa, along with Louisa Schein and Tim Oakes. The workshop explored keywords that illuminate aspects of Chinese infrastructure, with special attention to media worlds. Participants included Darren Byler (University of Washington), Carolyn Cartier (University of Technology Sydney), Silvia Lindtner (University of Michigan), Tim Oakes (University of Colorado Boulder), Lina Qu (Rutgers University), Alessandro Rippa (University of Colorado Boulder), Louisa Schein (Rutgers University), Tomonori Sugimoto (Stanford University), Fan Yang (University of Maryland Baltimore County), and Lu Zhang (Temple University).
