  • Xinzhi ZHANG (Organiser)

Activity: Conference/talk/lecture/symposium/speech/workshop, etcEvent organized by non-HKBU units


This is an invited talk in a reputable lecture series entitled "Young Scholar Forum," organized by the School of Communication at Shenzhen University. It is one of the University-level highlights of the 40th Anniversary of Shenzhen University. The attendees are faculty members and research students who majored in social science and humanities.

In the seminar, I will introduce my research outputs related to my first GRF project, completed in 2021, whereas the papers have been published in 2022 and 2023 in top journals (A or A+ journals).

The talk will increase the research visibility of the School of Communication and Hong Kong Baptist University. It is also a showcase of HKBU's endeavor in engaging the top-tier universities in the GBA. It will trigger more research collaboration and joint grant applications in the near future.
