It has also extended to cover Chinese television, Chinese independent video documentary, Chinese new media and computer-mediated communication, Korean cinema, queer Asian cinema, and more. His interests include cinema's role in the production of national, transnational, and local cultures and identities, and the connection between cinematic forms and socio-political developments, for example the connection of realism and melodrama to modernity, or the development of Chinese television and independent documentary and the expansion of public discourse.
