Dr. Corey Schultz is an associate professor in media and communication studies at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China. He received his Ph.D. from Goldsmiths, University of London in media & communications, and a M.A. in Asian studies (China Concentration) from UC Berkeley. Previously, he taught at the University of Southampton; Goldsmiths (University of London), and UC Berkeley. He became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (now AdvanceHE) in 2012. At the Southampton University Students Union Academic Awards in 2017, I received the “Highly Commended: Most Engaging Lecturer” award for Humanities, and in 2021 I received University of Nottingham's Lord Dearing Award for Teaching and Learning.
Dr. Schultz's primary research is on contemporary Chinese visual culture, memory studies, and film phenomenology. In 2016, I received a grant from the British Academy, the Leverhulme Trust and the Sir Ernest Cassel Trust for his project "Sites of Commemoration: Contemporary Chinese Commemorative Museums and Affective Experience." This grant led to his current research project, “Sites and Sights of Commemoration,” which examines the ways specific Chinese episodes of trauma have recently been commemorated in state-funded Chinese museums and films, and interrogates the ways that these “sites” and “sights” discursively, representationally, and affectively create meaning.
In addition to this project, he also researches representations of Jews and Jewishness in contemporary China. He is a former member and current honorary fellow of the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish / Non-Jewish Relations at the University of Southampton.
