Journalism scholar named awardees of RGC Humanities and Social Sciences Prestigious Fellowship Scheme
Dr Celine Song, Associate Professor of the Department of Journalism, were selected as awardees of the Humanities and Social Sciences Prestigious Fellowship Scheme 2021/22 under the Research Grants Council (RGC).
Dr Song’s funded project is entitled “Networked Framing in the Age of Hybrid Media: Legacy Media Coverage of and Social Media Conversations about Climate Change in the US, UK, and China”. The study expands on her previous work, which received the 2019-20 Fulbright-RGC Hong Kong Senior Research Scholar Award, and it combines advanced data mining techniques and traditional social science approaches to examine how the discursive fields across various types of media and content sources have come to shape public understanding of climate issues.
The Scheme grants supporting funds to outstanding investigators in humanities and social sciences disciplines, and it also provides relief from teaching and administrative duties, enabling awardees to focus on research and writing. No more than ten awards are granted each year.
