The Han Lens: Media Representation and Public Reception of Chinese Ethnic Minorities: A Case of Ayanga
This research examined the ways that ethnic minorities are depicted in mainstream media representations in China and how the public accepts and consumes such depictions. It provides a case study of the Inner Mongolian singer Ayanga, who made his debut in the media in 2012 and gained great popularity in a musical talent show in 2018. The thesis put various media texts produced by related fans communities into a database for analysis. By looking into the media strategies used by the state power structure and the majority ethnic group of China, a country where the dominant mainstream Han group makes up over 90% of the national population, the study discovers how representations of ethnic minorities help to construct the Han's subjectivity in China's nationality.
