Asian representation and controlling images in media

In this episode we talk with Professor Jingjing Li about the effect of mainstream media in perpetuating controlling images, in particular that of Asian-American women and men. We ask whether or not an image can be successfully changed by media representation, leading us to have a conversation about capitalism, emasculation and hyper-sexualization in movies such as “Crazy Rich Asians“ and the Netflix produced reality show “Bling Empire“.
