Research Topic

Creative Labour in the Cultural Industries of China: Autonomy, Self-realisation and Subjectivity

As a member of the 'China Creative' research group led by Prof. Jeroen de Kloet, my research is on creative work/labour in the cultural industries of China. By investigating the diverse working conditions of cultural workers in various cultural industries, the study aims to elucidate the complex power relation governing creative labour and its implication for the cultural workers' subjectivity.
