Jingwen Li graduated from Renmin University of China, with a dual B.A. in Communication and Philosophy. Benefiting from interdisciplinary studies in religion, sociology of knowledge, and critical theory, she finds her interests lie in the interaction between media culture and technology.
Her undergraduate thesis is about the perceptions of opium in mass media during the collisions of culture between modern China and Britain. She has written papers on media rituals in Chinese society, as well as a philosophical analysis on VR and technology reforms in the Chinese media environment. Her current research focuses on visual studies, especially ‘ways of seeing’ in Chinese painting and photography.
In her leisure time, Jingwen loves exploring museums and art galleries. She is also a big fan of British literature.
