The 2010s have seen an explosion in popularity of Chinese television featuring same-sex intimacies, LGBTQ-identified celebrities, and explicitly homoerotic storylines even as state regulations on “vulgar” and “immoral” content grow more prominent. Taking “queer” as a verb, an adjective, and a noun, the speaker proposes an analytical framework of “queer/ing TV China” to explore the power of various TV genres and narratives, censorial practices, and fandoms in queer desire-voicing and subject formation within a largely heteropatriarchal society. Dr Jamie J. Zhao (City University of Hong Kong) is a Global Queer Media scholar and Assistant Professor in Media and Cultural Studies at City University of Hong Kong. She holds a PhD in Gender Studies from Chinese University of Hong Kong, HKSAR, and received another PhD in Film and TV Studies from the University of Warwick, UK. Her research explores East Asian media and public discourses on female gender and sexuality in a globalist age.
