Kings PhD Networking Event on Asian CCI Research – 5 May 2017

2nd PhD Networking Event on Asian CCI Research with a Keynote from Dr Keith B. Wagner

Friday, 5 May 2017, 14.00 – 17.00

King’s College London, King’s Building (Strand Campus), Room K0.50

We, the Asian CCI Research Network, are excited to announce our second event focused on networking and getting to know other researchers in the field of Asian Cultural and Creative Industries. We are a couple of PhD students from different universities in the UK and would like to establish a network of like-minded people to exchange knowledge and ideas. All PhD students, researchers and scholars with an interest in Asian CCI are welcome.

We are very happy to welcome Dr Keith B. Wagner, Lecturer of Screen Media in the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry at University College London, who will give a keynote to kick off the event at 14.00. The keynote, titled ‘Radical Feminists and Pretty Capital in South Korean Media: Megalia and Produce 101 as Gender Extremes’, focuses on issues surrounding gender and feminism in Korea’s contemporary male-dominated media landscape. The keynote will be followed by a Q&A session with the speaker.

During our first event, we noticed a need for people to discuss research questions and methodological approaches. During the second part of the event, approximately from 15.00 – 16.00, we would like to focus on these matters. Attendees will be split up into smaller groups to discuss and share questions on methodologies and research methods. This will be followed by a discussion among all attendees, as well as the speaker to provide peer advice and comments.

All attendees are advised to fill out the following form so we can match up people with a similar research interest for the small group discussions:

The last 30 minutes of the event will be dedicated to input and ideas from all participants on how to further develop the network. How can a research network like the one we are trying to establish support you, and how you can contribute to it? We believe in co-working and creating and are welcoming any suggestions and ideas!
