Synopsis of Research in Shanghai (April 1 - May 22):

Collie’s area of focus is the narrative construction of contemporary mythology viewed through the lens of visual communication. His time in Shanghai would be part of a language and cultural immersion for his research project. Collie plans to use the Chinese language and culture as one of the case studies in his research. The core questions of the study include: how does a language tradition orient the individual and ultimately the community to itself and it’s surroundings? How does this orientation through language manifest itself visually in a culture’s ideology and artifacts?
