My topic has been changed for several times. From social media’s effect on anti-domestic violence campaign in China-taking Crazy English Lee Yang domestic abuse as a case, to the history of anti-domestic violence in China, especially after adoption of new media. After talking with professor Shirky, I decided to have an approach from the media’s advantage in emotional synchronization which form individuals into community. Thanks to the internet, feminist in China discovered a low-budget way to create platforms for women under abuse to share their own stories, and to make these private and personal stories public and communal. The online solidarity then entended to real life, which rewarded on those feminist group and help them thrive. Since my interactive project is focused on the experience of being a woman under abuse, the research essay will support it from how media could enhance the synchronization when people have such immersive involvement rather than reading or hearing several line of literal story.
My current resources are a multimedia project documented feminist campaign and interview of ngo leaders, a documentary produced by Chinese official broadcasting channel CCTV about domestic abuse in China and several other journals. I’m still looking for more theoretical ones for new media’s effect.
