Description

The first book to analyse cultural dynamics of Chinese migration to Italy, Migration and the Media compares Italian, Chinese migrant, and international media interpretations between 1992 and 2012. From paternalistic tones reducing migrants' motives to poverty or political oppression to fear-mongering diatribes about illegal business practices, tax evasion, and unfair competition, the Italian and international media covered this large-scale migration extensively during this period. The Chinese community also joined in the media polyphony with articles in their own newspapers and magazines, more likely refuting biased mainstream media coverage or protesting the harsh regulations that seemed to target the Chinese, but sometimes even advising fellow migrants on how to counter the media's criticism. Gaoheng Zhang places the strong media interest in Italian-Chinese migrant relations within relevant economic, political, cultural, and linguistic contexts. Examining how journalists, entrepreneurs, and politicians debated Italy’s Chinese, Zhang argues that these stakeholders viewed the migration as a particularly effective example to support or dispute Italy’s general stance toward migrant integration and economic globalization.

Gaoheng Zhang is Assistant Professor of Italian Studies at the University of British Columbia.

"Migration and the Media is a clear and masterful example of Italian cultural studies. It traces the history of Chinese migrations to Italy, the impact of migration on Italian culture, and its role in creating transnational contexts that bring to light the global movements of people into Italy and Italy into a global culture."Graziella Parati, Professor of Italian, Dartmouth College"Migration and the Media is a breakthrough study. Gaoheng Zhang’s trilingualism enables him to analyze a variety of Chinese, and Italian-language media productions in order to trace the recent Chinese migrant presence in Italy. To English readers, this book opens a world that very few would be able to access otherwise."Adrienne Ward, Department of Spanish, Italian & Portuguese, University of Virginia
