1. Tao, Lina. Media representation of internal migrant children in China between 1990 and 2012.

Degree: Humanities, 2015, University of New South Wales

Internal migrant children in mainland China remained virtually invisible or unknown in the early 1990s, but, as the number of such children surged, they soon became an object of media reports and public discussion. This thesis investigates and compares the representations of migrant children in the Chinese press from 1990¬¬¬–2012 and in the Twitter-like micro-blogosphere (weibo). It aims to understand the ways in which the media produce knowledge and opinions about this emerging group and, with regard to the discursive pattern, to trace the continuity and change over time as well as between different media forms. People’s Daily and Southern Weekly are chosen to examine the portrayal of migrant children in an official Party-led newspaper vis-à-vis a commercial audience-oriented press. It is argued that, despite the domination of official voices (as in People’s Daily), the commercialisation of Chinese media institutions and the ensuing diversification of media content have facilitated the expression of migrant children and diversified their images (as in Southern Weekly). At the same time, Chinese micro-bloggers have contributed to topics related to migrant children from a grassroots perspective which usually prioritises charity and philanthropy. Weibo has helped to shift the power of agenda setting from the Party-state and professional news workers to ordinary netizens (who are mainly urban and educated), but not to migrant children or migrants in general. The weibo discourse has reinforced, rather than challenged, the existing stereotypes of migrant children in the Chinese public discourse, who are continuously portrayed as a passive, subordinate and inferior group and whose voices are rarely heard in either online forums or offline media discourse.The research employs a combined methodology of qualitative discourse analysis and quantitative content analysis. The data set is comprised mainly of 217 press reports and 458 weibo tweets. The analytical themes of the discourse include the terminology referring to migrant children, rhetorical strategies, the general subjects of media discussions, and the quotations from different social groups. The discourse analysis approach is supplemented by classic content analysis which helps to reveal the general trends and themes in the texts.

2. Xu, Duoduo SOSC. Three essays on educational inequality in China : the causal impacts of migration, segregation, and college education.

Degree: 2016, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

People’s access to education, especially quality education, exerts a profound influence on later life chances. In these three essays, using the newly available data from school-based education panel surveys, I first examine the causal impacts of different migration processes on a wide variety of developmental outcomes for rural-origin children; and then focus on the hukou-based school segregation and its impact on the achievement gap between migrant and local children in urban China; lastly, investigate the linkage between the dynamic change of people’s non-cognitive abilities during college and their labor market performance after graduation. Findings in this dissertation contribute to our understanding of the formation, maintenance, and consequences of educational inequality in contemporary China.
