I am fellow in OSU's Global Arts and Humanities Society of Fellows, working on a comparative project about East Asian/Eastern European socialisms. My (soon to be) "new book," is titled "New Era, New Media: Emerging Media Ecologies in 1980s China." It is a media archaeology of the early postsocialist period in China (1978-1989) that analyzes print culture, television, and cinema as a transitional media ecology. At OSU, I am teaching a class on East Asian media history and working on both the "New Era, New Media" manuscript and my developing my next project, "Revolutionary Skeuomorphs," a study of new media as they interact with socialist nostalgias in contemporary China and Eastern Europe.
Julia Keblinska is a postdoc at the East Asian Studies Center at the Ohio State University specializing in Chinese media history and comparative socialisms.
