Zhao Yuezhi is Professor and Canada Research Chair in the Political Economy of Global Communication at the School of Communication, Simon Fraser University, Canada. She is also a Specially Appointed Professor at the School of Journalism and Communication, Tsinghua University. Professor Zhao’s research centers on the political economy and cultural politics of China’s communication system and its global integration.

Baker Award for her scholarly achievements, Dr. Zhao’s publications include Communication in China: Political Economy, Power and Conflict (2008), Communication and Society: Political Economy and Cultural Analysis (2011, in Chinese).
In the background of establishing the academic subjectivity of Chinese communication research, Professor Zhao Yuezhi takes her own cross-cultural and interdisciplinary academic practice as a case to outline the core connotations of her innovative cross cultural communication political economic analysis frame, for both the history of Journalism and communication and the history of China's development and change.
