Abstract:This special issue of 'Ecquid Novi' acknowledges that the engagement between China and Africa is one of the most significant geopolitical shifts to have occurred on the continent in recent years, and, furthermore, that these shifts will increasingly be mediated through journalistic representations and the flow and counterflow of media capital. This issue contributes scholarly research towards an informed debate about the impact of China's increased involvement in Africa, as it pertains to the media. It brings together research articles as well as opinion pieces that approach this issue from the perspectives of both academics and practitioners.
